Believes and Teachings of the American Indian
Before any human beings there was the Great Mystery. After preparing the SUN and MOON and WATER and setting them into place, the Great Mystery made patterns for all things that were to be born and arranged for all happenings that were to occur.
Then the Great Mystery prepared Nature Land, where all things were to mingle in harmony, and the Great Mystery created the plants and all the creatures that swam, crawled, walked, and flew. Gifts were bestowed upon them, with abilities to learn lessons from one another.
All things belong to the Great Mystery. For this reason, the same Spirit is in everything that breathes, senses, hears, tastes, smells, and sees. The inhabitants of Nature Land are aware of the Great Mystery through the whisperings that speak through the mind.
