Final day of the Trail of Tears
With our hearts turned homeward, we made it into Missouri where we found the living waters flowing, the glory of the setting sun and fossils by the handfuls reminding us that we are very very very old indeed.
We built our final altar we made our final prayers. Aloud we prayed to our ancestors and our great great grandchildren. “Feel us! We are MorningStar and WalkingFire. We are your great great grand mothers. We were here. We leave you our strength. Our wisdom. Our great sacred feminine power. Feel us. Upon this ground we stood and prayed for you. Blessed you on your journey.”
