I think that this was a great expression of the diversity of our nation. I personally appreciate, greatly, the perspective of Native American Spirituality and incorporate it into my own spirituality. While this man was obviously trying to give some context to what he was about to do, and understanding that he was not a “holy man,” I think he did a fantastic job!
Native American spirituality finds themselves part of the creation, relatives to all that exists: winged ones, four legged ones and two leggeds in this world. There is a connective reality inherent in their perspective that we all could all learn from and incorporate into our worldview. We are all part of each other, of the earth, of the other creatures with whom we share the earth.
