EARTH MANTLE

I am of the earth and I wear my mantle with its many colors. The brown for fertile soil and the green for new growth. Many journeys have been made across the straight paths of red walking under the blue sky. I have gone many directions. Each thong represents a journey accomplished and the elk teeth have given me much stamina to do what I must do. I have great wealth. There are yet many mountains to climb and I know that my journeys will be blessed with Great Spirit along my way.
