Native American Wisdom Quotes

There is no death, only a change of worlds. No tribe has the right to sell, even to each other, much less to strangers Sell a country! Why not sell the air, the great sea, as well as the earth? Didn't the Great Spirit make them all for the use of his children?
These Native American quotes are words of great wisdom that offer simple, inspirational guidance in living a spiritual, peaceful life. Previously, this page contained Native American quotes that were not attributed to any particular person or tribe. They were all the quotes I had come across over the years that stated they were Native American. The few quotes that I had from specific Native American people were added to the pages relevant to their quote. The older picture-quotes will just have 'Native American' on them, rather than the newly found source.
