    April 5

    Think for yourself. Stop living by tradi-
    tion that promises you the moon and gives you a
    rock to carry.
    Think things through--if one way looks
    easier than another, take the bolder way. Don't
    think what it is going to get you but what it is going
    to build in you. Some things feed the body and
    some the spirit. Go with the spirit--it already
    knows what you need to know.

    Let us form one body, one heart, and defend to the
    last warrior our country, our homes, our liberty,
    and the graves of our fathers.

    Men must be born
    and reborn to belong.
    OGLALA SIOUX, 1868-1937

    A Native to Know

    Poet and novelist Sherman Alexie, born
    in 1966 and brought up on a Spokane
    Indian Reservation, has won several
    awards for his writing, including the
    National Endowment for the Arts Poetry
    Fellowship in 1992. With more than 200
    published poems and stories, he is best
    known for the book The Lone Ranger
    and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven (1993).

    As we plunge ahead to build empires
    and race for supremacy we should stop
    and listen to [the female] song of life. For
    without the female there is no life."
    -Oren R. Lyons, Spokesman
    Traditional Circle of Elders

    Women are created with the ability to pro-
    duce life. Women have a special tie to the
    Earth Mother. They have something in com-
    mon. They are the source of life. The Earth
    Mother gives songs to the Woman to sing.
    These songs are about life, about beauty, about
    children, about love, about family, about
    strength, about caring, about nurturing, about
    forgiveness, about God. The World needs to
    pay attention and listen to Her. She knows.
