A Prayer for the Mother Earth

20 x 24

Acrylic on Canvas

May we listen to the messages her changes.

May we live in harmony with her.

The text in her veil is from an Iroquois Prayer:

We return thanks to our mother,

the earth, which sustains us.

We return thanks to the rivers and streams,

which supply us with water.

We return thanks to all herbs,

which furnish medicines

for the cure of our diseases.

We return thanks to the corn,

and to her sisters, the beans and squash,

which give us life.

We return thanks to the bushes and trees,

which provide us with fruit.

We return thanks to the wind,

which, moving the air,

has banished diseases.

We return thanks to the moon and the stars,

which have given us their light

when the sun was gone.

We return thanks to our grandfather He-no,

who has given to us his rain.

We return thanks to the sun,

that he has looked upon the earth

with a beneficent eye.

Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit.

in whom is embodied all goodness.

and who directs all things,

for the good of his children.
