Interesting reading about that time period from a Native American girls' viewpoint. It seems the world would have been better off if we would have adopted their way of life instead of the other way around. Their spirituality, blessing food before they hunt, fish or eat and closeness to nature, not spoiling the land or waters they use is a good lesson for all of us.
