Native American Wisdom

Chiricahua & Comanche Wisdom


CHIRICAHUA

You must speak straight so that your words may go as sunlight into our hearts.
- Cochise, Chiricahua Chief


COMANCHE


I was born upon the prairie where the wind blew free and there was nothing to break the light of the sun. I was born where there were no enclosures and where everything drew a free breath. I want to die there, and not within walls.
- Ten Bears, Yamparika Comanche


My heart is filled with joy when I see you here, as the brook fills with water in the spring.  Two years ago I came upon this road, following the buffalo, that my wives and children might have their cheeks plump and their bodies warm.  But the soldiers fired upon us, and since that time there has been a noise like that of a thunderstorm.  Why do you ask us to leave the rivers and the sun and live in houses? -- Ten Bears, Yamparika Comanche
