We who sit in this Sacred Circle will always live our life honoring the old ways of our Ancestors. For every word and action we take is a prayer, and with our eyes we see the beauty and sacredness in all life.
Wherever we travel we leave the Sacred Land as it was or better, for we will take only what we need so we can learn to live in harmony and give respect to all other life and their needs.
We balance ourselves within so we can give balance to the Sacred Hoop, for that is living in oneness with the Great Spirit who lives in all things, and that is the sharing of our love within our heart.
We should always be humbled by the One who has so many names who Created all things, and that is where our spiritual power will come to have a sacred connection and a oneness with the Star Nations and the Sacred Hoop.
We will never judge one by the color of their skin or beliefs, but listen to their heart and that will reveal who they truly are.
We do not give hate to our enemies but we pray for them and love them and then we will have the peace and blessings.
For when we live through our Ancestors and walk in their steps they will always be near us, supporting us, guiding us and healing us.
