|“Male and female is fundamental to life; partners in work to be done.”|
|–Oren R. Lyons, Spokesman, Traditional Circle of Elders|
|The Great Spirit created a system which would allow us to reproduce, to have companionship, to love, to laugh, to cry, and be happy. Man and Woman each have gifts the other doesn’t have. But, together they have these gifts to share with each other. The Great Spirit made it this way. So let us treat each other with respect. Let us look upon each other in a sacred way.|
Grandfather, Grandmother, bring the spirits to teach us.
