To wake with the sun, as it's rays touch Mother Earth I give thanks for it warming this great land and watch the beauty of a sunrise as mirth returns to earth I hear birds announce this rebirth as if on command I see happiness in all faces, while greeting the relations as all work to prepare our lodge for a morning meal A sample of foods taken from this land for our nation Give thanks and only take what's needed to feed and heal Work for common good, while giving kindness and respect to all beings of this land, as we greet them each day Wolf, bird, fish, plant and man of this land all interconnect for without this union, life would not greet this day At days end, watching the sun retreat beyond the horizon all life feeds and prepares for nights darkness to return Relations gather, speak of the day and return of the bison A white bison's return is one of our lessons to learn
