To the thunderers we call our Grandfathers, we give greetings
and thanks. The Creator has also given you certain
responsibilities. We see you roaming the sky carrying with
you water to renew life. Your loud voices are heard from
time to time and for the protection and the medicine you
give, we offer our thanksgiving.
(Iroquois Prayer of Thanksgiving)
Garden Sculpture
We acknowledge and give greetings to the trees of the world.
They continue to perform the instructions, which were given.
The maple trees are symbols as the head of the trees. It is
the maple trees that provide us with sap for our syrup and is
the first sign of the rebirth of spring. The trees provide us
with shelter, shade, and fruits. They provide us our baskets,
canoes, drums, and many useful items. Long ago, our people
were given a way of peace and strength, and the everlasting
tree of peace symbolizes this way.
(Iroquois Prayer of Thanksgiving)
