Lakota Chief Oren Lyons Speaks To Our Humanity

An inspirational and wise speech by a Native American leader.    It's a pleasure to hear someone speaking  straight and with common sense.

Will we finally listen or shall I say, will you open your ears and your mind and take in what this man has to say?    I for one can hear and understand the important of his words clearly.

Native American leaders always seem to have a special kind of wisdom, thanks for sharing.

Very good speech but I have a question... Do you know if Owen Lyons is a Lakota or an Onondaga which is a tribe of the Iroquois Nation?

Hello Cherie:

To answer your question: Yes, Owen is an Orondaga elder. I found this quotation of his:

“We forget so we consider ourselves superior. But we are, after all, a mere part of the creation and we must consider to understand where we are and we stand somewhere between the mountain and the Ant. Somewhere and only there is a part and parcel of the creation."

Chief Oren Lyons Onondaga

Thanks for the correction and in the form of a question. You are a skilled manager.

Kindest regards,
