The Onondaga (Iroquois) lords shall open each council by greeting their cousin lords,

and expressing their gratitude to them. And they shall offer thanks to the earth

where all people dwell – To the streams of water, the pools, the springs, and the lakes;

to the maize and the fruits – To the medicinal herbs and the trees, to the forest trees

for their usefulness, to the animals that serve as food and who offer their pelts as clothing –

To the great winds and the lesser wind; to the Thunderers; and the sun, the mighty warrior;

to the moon – To the messengers of the Great Spirit who dwells in the skies above,

who gives all thing useful to men, who is the source and the ruler of health and life.

Then shall the Onondaga lords declare the council open.

    These are words as written by Eddie Two Hawks from their Council. I was much moved by them.

    What a beautiful Eagle – is it a photo, a painting, a statue – just breathtaking in how the light strikes its feathers.
