Riding the Wind

Everything the Power of the World does is done in a circle. The sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours.
Oglala Sioux holy man Black Elk, as recorded by John G. Neilhardt in Black Elk Speaks, Lincoln, 1961
