The way it should be

Letter to the Editor

 


I saw our rez from afar today. Awakening late, coffee, toast, and ‘pondering, praying, meditation and hope...’ what we once were, where we are right now, and what will be.

Suddenly, picture perfect clear, it came to me like a dream, a vision, and I thought "this is the way it should be!"... so beautiful, so calm, comforting and serene: CCT, the CCT peoples and most certainly the CCT rez and what is to be!

Atop a hillside with tall grasses swaying, blowing in the soft winds at the foot of Mother earth's bountiful hillside, a jogger lazily makes his way between hillside and crystal clear blue lake mirroring a magnificent Grandfather's colorful sunset in shades of yellow, orange and blue, as the day's bright sunshine fades into cool quiet comfort of twilight ... with thoughts and dreams of a better tomorrow.

YES! Our yesteryears of the mighty, mighty Colvilles have been what it was: Grandfather and Mother Earth, in our Native way of living our Indian Circle of Life ways, thinking, etc ., (which) has given us all life's lesson(s) to learn and live by. For "it is what it is.” As we continue to honor and believe in Grandfather, so too will Mother Earth provide us bountiful tomorrows as she has forever in years past. All we have to do is remember in our minds, our hearts and souls: "The Indian Way."
