And now, grandfather, I ask you to bless the white man. He needs your wisdom, your guidance. You see for so long he has tried to destroy my people and only feels comfortable when given power. Bless them, show them the peace we understand, teach them humility. For I fear they will destroy themselves and their children as they have done so with Mother Earth. I plead, I cry, after all They are my brothers.
