Grandfather's Lament

Lakota Attribution

Grandfather, I ask you to bless the whiteman. He needs your wisdom, your guidance.

He's tried for so long to destroy my people and only feels comfortable when given power.

Bless them with your wisdom. 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 Motherearth.

I plead, I cry, afterall they are my brothers.
