This is our language (yours and mine). It is the pleasant sound of the leaves blowing in the wind and the whisper of the wind in the pines. It is the sound of the waves lapping the shores of the lakes and the birds singing to one another in the forest. This is the sound of the wolves howling to one another, sounding in the distance. This is our language, from whence we obtain life, which enables us to know who we are as Indian people, our language, this sacred gift bestowed upon us by our creator.
