This month of November, in honor of National Native Heritage Month, I've been sharing my fascination with the cultures of the Indigenous Peoples. Although I'm not an Indigenous person, I've a great respect for what they have left us and what they still can offer to the world.
This month also is Thanksgiving and it seems appropriate to look at what these people offered that I am grateful for.
Their music: Visit YouTube and you will find music that both inspires and inhabits you. I personally love the flute music
Their Art: From the Petroglyphs, pottery, to their beaded clothing, there is little that doesn't inspire me.

Their Wisdom: I have been grateful to those who've shared what that can of their culture and the wisdom they grew up with.
Their Stories: Stories are what connect us. The stories that have been shared help me to understand more of who they are. It's not for me to change anything about them, but to honor who they are.
