View of the Blue Ridge Parkway in July 2012. At one time, all this land belonged to the Native People, and it was well cared for and preserved. They lived in the Light, and were very much more advanced than the immigrants who stole their land.
“We were lawless people, but we were on pretty good terms with the Great Spirit, creator and ruler of all. You whites assumed we were savages. You didn't understand our prayers. You didn't try to understand. When we sang our praises to the sun or moon or wind, you said we were worshiping idols. Without understanding, you condemned us as lost souls just because our form of worship was different from yours. We saw the Great Spirit in almost everything: sun, moon, trees, wind, and mountains. Sometimes we approached the Great Spirit through these things. Was that so Bad? I think we have a true belief in the supreme being, a stronger faith than that of most whites who have called us pagans. Indians living close to nature and nature's ruler are not living in darkness.” - Walking Buffalo
