Show your honor.
"The true Indian sets no price upon either his property or his labor. His generosity is limited only by his strength and ability. He regards it as an honor to be selected for difficult or dangerous service and would think it shameful to ask for any reward, saying rather:
express his thanks
according to his own bringing up
and his sense of honor.'
Each soul must meet the morning sun, the new sweet earth, and the Great Silence alone!. What is Silence? It is the Great Mystery! The Holy Silence is His voice!"
Ohiyesa (Dr. Charles Alexander Eastman) - Santee Sioux [Lakota]
