Native American Indian
Quotes From Tribes

Help me always to speak the truth quietly, to listen with an open mind when others speak and to remember the peace that may be found in silence - Native American saying - Spiritual Quotes To Live BySeth & Lucy (2012)

These Native American Indian quotes are listed under the tribes that I have been able to source. There is also a page of Native American Sayings from unknown sources and the main page of quotes from Native American People.

Previously, these quotes were just attributed to 'Native American' so the older picture quotes on this page do not have the tribes on them.

 Native Indian Quotes:  Chinook   



Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the earth, our planet home, with its beautiful depths and soaring heights, its vitality and abundance of life, and together we ask that it… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the mountains, the Cascades and the Olympics, the high green valleys and meadows filled with wild flowers, the snows that never melt, the summits of intense silence, and we ask that they… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the waters that rim the earth, horizon to horizon, that flow in our rivers and streams, that fall upon our gardens and fields and we ask that they… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the land which grows our food, the nurturing soil, the fertile fields, the abundant gardens and orchards, and we ask that they… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the forests, the great trees reaching strongly to the sky and the earth in their roots and the heavens in their branches, the fir and the pine and the cedar, and we ask them to… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon the creatures of the fields and forests and the seas, our brothers and sisters the wolves and deer, the eagle and dove, the great whales and dolphin, the beautiful Orca and salmon who share our Northwest home, and we ask them to… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon all those who have lived on this earth, our ancestors and our friends, who dreamed the best for our future generations, and upon whose lives our lives our built, and with thanksgiving, we call upon them to… Teach us, and show us the Way.

And lastly, we call upon all that we hold most sacred, the presence and power of the Great Spirit of love and truth which flows through all the Universe, to be with us to… Teach us, and show us the Way.

We call upon all that we hold most sacred, the presence and power of the Great Spirit of love and truth which flows through all the Universe... Native American, Chinook - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

We return thanks to our mother,
the Earth, which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams,
which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs,
which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and stars,
which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the sun,
that has looked upon the Earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit,
in whom is embodied all goodness,
and who directs all things for the good of her children.

 Native American Indian Quotes:  Lakota   



A man or woman with many children has many homes.


Everything the power does, it does in a circle.


Force, no matter how concealed, begets resistance.


Friend do it this way - that is
Whatever you do in life
Do the very best you can
With both your heart and mind

And if you do it that way
The Power Of The Universe
Will come to your assistance
If your heart and mind are in Unity

When one sits in the Hoop Of The People
One must be responsible because
All of Creation is related
And the hurt of one is the hurt of all
And the honor of one is the honor of all
And whatever we do
Affects everything in the Universe

If you do it that way - that is
If you truly join your heart and mind
As One - whatever you ask for
That’s the way it’s going to be

(passed down from White Buffalo Calf Woman)


Teach me how to trust:
My heart, my mind
My intuition, my inner knowing
The senses of my body
The blessings of my spirit

Teach me to trust these things:
So that I may enter my sacred space
And love beyond my fear
And thus walk in balance
With the passing of each glorious sun


Whatever you do in life, do the very best you can, with both your heart and mind.

 Native American Quotes:  Ute   



Earth teach me quiet…
as the grasses are still with new light.

Earth teach me suffering…
as old stones suffer with memory.

Earth teach me humility…
as blossoms are humble with beginning.

Earth teach me caring…
as mothers nurture their young.

Earth teach me courage…
as the tree that stands alone.

Earth teach me limitation…
as the ant that crawls on the ground

Earth teach me freedom…
as the eagle that soars in the sky

Earth teach me acceptance…
as the leaves that die each fall

Earth teach me renewal…
as the seed that rises in the spring

Earth teach me to forget myself…
as melted snow forgets its life

Earth teach me to remember kindness…
as dry fields weep with rain


God gives us each a song.
