Ute Prayer, Uncompahgre Ute Tribe
The earliest lessons we learn come from the Earth. The marvel of a blue sky, of rain, of snow. The feeling of dirt between our toes and the scent of grass in the air. The curiosity that accompanies inspecting insects, the bravery that accompanies climbing trees, the wonder and flavors of fruits and vegetables. Earth has educated us, grounded us, humbled us, inspired us. What lessons do you learn each day from Earth? How do you give back to her?
