Seven Arrows by Hyemeyohsts Storm

There is something inside me, either passion, or archivist-compulsivity-- or both, that needs to share everything that is valuable that fires up my spirit. But truthfully, I know it is more than that; it is something we are driven to do as part of the whole-- share valuable knowledge.

A man on the bus lent me a book. (Wayne.) He is a dignified man, who you can tell has survived some hardship in his past. It is a book of teachings of the plains Indian people, from the way they lived and experienced the world before we rolled in. It starts like this:

"You are about to begin an adventure of the People, the Plains Indian People. You probably have known of these People only by their whiteman names, as the Cheyenne, the Crow and the Sioux. Here you will learn to know of them as they were truly known among the People, as the Painted Arrow, the Little Black Eagle, and the Brother People."

I am going to upload the whole book, find it here:
