Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Prayer
As this day of Thanksgiving dawns, the words of the Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Prayer ring truer than ever. The Iroquois Museum showcases a rendition of these bejeweled words by renowned Mohawk storyteller Kay Olan. Beginning with all people and progressing to the Earth Mother, Grandmother Moon and Big Brother Sun, the prayer pays homage to everything that sustains us and keeps us going. It reminds us to take care of these things and through that, ourselves and each other.
