Giving Thanks


We who are here present thank the Great Spirit that we are here
to praise Him.

We thank Him that He has created men and women, and ordered
that these beings shall always be living to multiply the earth.

We thank Him for making the earth and giving these beings its products to live
on....

--A traditional Iroquois prayer translated by Harriet Maxwell Converse
