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
