"When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home."
(Chief Aupumut, Mohican)
"There is no death. Only a change of worlds.”
(Chief Seattle, Suquamish)
'The Return of the Buffaloes: A Plains Indian Story About Famine and Renewal of the Earth'
By Paul Goble (Author, Illustrator)
The Indians of the Great Plains have dispatched two of their strongest scouts to learn what has become of the buffalo herds that sustain their people. Encountering a mysterious spirit woman, the pair explain their predicament; shortly thereafter, the land comes alive with animals, and the tribe is saved. Paul Goble's superb illustrations recall the traditional art of the Plains Indians and the natural splendor of the Great Plains.
