"The contamination - pollution - begins in the mind. So that's why the whole world is in a turmoil. We totally refuse to see that all of this is Tunkasila's power. We totally deny it. Instead, we have just 'me.' 'I have wisdom.' 'I have knowledge.' 'I have power.' 'I have a gift.' 'I am the supreme.' "
Wallace Black Elk
Lakota elder and medicine man
"Tunkasila" means "Grandfather," the personal name given to the Great Mystery.
