Everything We Take is Borrowed

“Before taking a feather, I offer tobacco.  I don’t just stand and let that tobacco fall; I sit on the ground with humbleness, because I am offering something for something I will use from Mother Earth.  Because it’s not ours; everything we take is borrowed; we’re borrowing time; we’re borrowing all the things we need.  So I honor animal and life.”
