An Indian Prayer Christmas Day

Larry Kibby

Great Spirit Grandfather,
I send these words to you,
To Father Sun,
Grandmother Moon,
To all of my relations,
To Mother Earth,
And to the Four Winds
The Sacred Seasons of Life.

Grandfather,
Today you gave
The breath of Life
To an Indian Child,
In a most Sacred Way.

Grandfather,
This Indian Child
Will walk amongst
His people,
With his head held high,
With dignity and pride,
In a most Sacred Way.

Grandfather,
This Indian Child
Will stand before
His people,
With honor
And respect,
In a most Sacred Way.

Grandfather,
This Indian Child
Will be strong
With wisdom, knowledge
And understanding,
That will come from
The heart, soul and mind,
In a most Sacred Way.

Grandfather,
This Indian Child
Will come before
A humble Nation of people,
And like his relations
The Eagle and the Buffalo
Will be their strength
In a most Sacred Way.

Grandfather,
This Indian Child
You gave to us in a sacred way,
And with his eyes
He will see all that is good,
And with his ears,
He will hear all that is good,
And the words he will speak
Will be strong and powerful,
In a most Sacred Way.

Grandfather,
This Indian Child
That you have brought before us,
Your Native American Indian people,
Will be like his Ancestor’s
That have gone before him
On their journey,
Will always travel
Within the Sacred Circle of Life
In a most Sacred Way.

Grandfather,
This Indian Child
Will use
His Eagle Feathers,
His Sacred Pipe,
His Sacred Cedar,
His Sacred Sage,
His Sacred Sweetgrass,
His Drums and Songs
In his Sacred Sun Dance,
In his Sacred Sweat Lodge,
In his Sacred Ceremonies,
In a most Sacred Way.

Grandfather,
This Indian Child will be strong within,
His tradition, culture
And religion,
An intricate heritage,
In a most Sacred Way.

Grandfather,
Thank you for each breath of life
That you have given to our New Born,
For tomorrow,
Another Indian Child
Will be born the “Indian Way.”
