Ancient Arapaho Invocation
O my Father, Holy Spirit. O Four old men and keeper of the Sacred Pipe. O Morning Star and all good things of creation,
I mention these things, the light of dawn, The good wind, the timber, the soil and the animals.
Listen, all you creatures under the ground, All you creatures above the ground and in the waters!
May this people be long in life, and increase.
May our boys and girls, our children of all ages, May our grown men and women, and all our elders, May they increase and be strengthened.
Our Father Creator, We ask this blessing upon our food, And we ask for all your peoples The increase of loving hearts and the happy life of peace and harmony.
