Brave Buffalo
Men and Animals
printer friendly version
I have noticed in my life that all men have a liking for some
special animal, tree, plant, or spot of earth. If men would
pay more attention to these preferences and seek what
is best to do in order to make themselves worthy of that
toward which they are so attracted, they might have
dreams which would purify their lives. Let a man decide
upon his favorite animal and make a study of it, learning
its innocent ways. Let him learn to understand its sounds
and motions. The animals want to communicate with man,
but Wakan-Tanka [the Great Mystery] does not intend
they shall do so directly-- man must do the greater part
in securing an understanding.

(Brave Buffalo was a Teton Sioux medicine man.)
