In Beauty May I Walk: Navajo Prayer – Anonymous

In beauty may I walk;
All day long may I walk;
Through the returning seasons may I walk.

Beautifully will I possess again
Beautifully birds
Beautifully butterflies…

On the trail marked with pollen may I walk;
With grasshoppers about my feet may I walk;
With dew around my feet may I walk.

With beauty before me may I walk
With beauty behind me may I walk
With beauty above me may I walk
With beauty all around me,
may I walk.

In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, lively;
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, living again…
It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.

  1. The white man’s genocide involving the Native Americans is so sad. Rationalizing things by calling them “savages” was social insanity.

    • If we could only learn from history, still many white Americans see the indigenous people as savages. At least they are getting back through casinos — the house always wins.

  2. This has greatly expanded since I was there about ten years ago. Just curious if they are doing any archaeological digs.
