“The Great Spirit is in all things, he is in the air we breathe. The Great Spirit is our Father, but the Earth is our Mother. She nourishes us, that which we put into the ground she returns to us….”

— Big Thunder (Bedagi) Wabanaki Algonquin

You that know the winds by name,
that resides in the Four Corners and in none,
who is named, yet nameless,
who is neither day nor night,
neither shadow nor twilight,
who exist everywhere,
who is within and without,
at the same time and space,
with many expressions, but no face,
where did you come from?
