In the Beginning I was here.
Long before the White man and his diseases, his religions and his war-like ways.
I lived upon the land for countless moons, in harmony with the Great Spirit, honoring all life around me.
In this land called Kan-tu-kee, the great meadow, the dark and bloody ground, I was known as Shawnee.
I was also known by other names … Cherokee, Chickasaw, Iroquois, Lanapota, Creek…
I am Native American… the indigenous tribes of this land, the American Indian.
