Two Medicine Lake


George Catlin’s Creed:

  • I love a people that have always made me welcome to the very best that they had.
  • I love a people who are honest without laws, who have no jails and no poorhouses.
  • I love a people who keep the commandments without ever having read or heard them preached from the pulpit.
  • I love a people who never swear or take the name of God in vain.
  • I love a people “who love their neighbors as they love themselves”
  • I love a people who worship God without a Bible, for I believe that God loves them also.
  • I love a people whose religion is all the same, and who are free from religious animosities.
  • I love a people who have never raised a hand against me, or stolen my property, when there was no law to punish either.
  • I love and don’t fear mankind where God has made and left them, for they are his children.
  • I love a people who have never fought a battle with the white man, except on their own ground.
  • I love a people who live and keep what is their own without lock and keys.
  • I love a people who do the best they can. And oh how I love a people who don’t live for the love of money.
  • Gakina-awiiya (We Are All Related)
  • “Teach us love, compassion and honor…that we may heal the Earth, and heal each other."

  • - Ojibwe prayer
