Birthright people

I’ve always regarded the Native Americans (or American Indians) with respect. Whether or not they were the first inhabitants here in North America, I consider them the birthright people of this continent. In them I see the supreme love of nature that is akin to the bond between a mother and her child. I feel the wisdom and selfless conviction in their ways, the freedom in their actions and the fierceness in their courage. They might not have known on their own the modern religions and technology that were just introduced to them later. But they sure knew about love and respect! And that is why I’m still learning from them.
