Dolphin Prayer

Translated and compiled by Steiff Peaceful-Tail, published in 2075

Blessed be the crow people for they are made of humor and are loyal to family and mate all the days of their lives. They are sharp and witty and fill the world with play.


Blessed be the dog people for they are made of love and nurture the wicked human, purging the world of evil and healing the sins that humankind has cast upon the world. As the human soils the world so the dog cleanses the human heart, purifying the world.


Blessed be the Dolphin people for they are made of grace and have studied humankind and act as mediators between the oceans and the humans.


Blessed be the feline people for they are made of cunning and cull the weak and wicked from the tribes of grazers and choose among the good and evil humans.


Blessed be the rat people for they are made of kindness and share the way of cell singing with us all.


Blessed be the insect people for they are made of energy and are the guardians of plant pollination and ecological balance. They clean the filth and till the soil.


Blessed be the horse people for they are made of patience and are gentle in their teaching of humankind.


Blessed be the human people for they are made of thought and have shared their gifts of language and technology with all the earth.
