MITAKUYE OYASIN (we are all related)

Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 28 October 2017 in Documentary & Street.

The plaque reads:

This sculpture represents hope for reconciliation, dignity and
respect for all the human race. The earth itself is in the shape
of a hoop or circle of life. The crossed pipes represent world
peace. The eagle symbolizes all flying creatures, and communication
with Tunka Śila. Wisdom and the healing arts are represented by the
grizzly bear, and a long and productive life is symbolized by the turtle.
The bison reminds us of our ancestors' healthy lifestyles, free from
famine, and also of the White Buffalo Calf Woman who brought us the pipe.

Magnifique sculpture et quand je lis "espoir pour la réconciliation, la dignité et le
respect de toute la race humaine", il me plaît à le rêver.
Certes, nous ne pouvons pas tous nous aimer en tant que personnes individuelles, mais la réconciliation, la dignité et le respect serait vraiment le minimum que nous puissions nous accorder.
Merci pour ce partage.
Bonne journée Steve

Ineresting note Steve and beautiful sculpture. The reconciliation is not always easy because the sufferings leave often indelible tracks. And it begins with our own neighbors, friends or internet relations
