You call the Great Spirit, Jesus, in your language; we call him in the Crow language, E-So-We-Wat-Se. I am going to light the pipe and talk to the Great Spirit. The Great Spirit has made the red man and the white man, and sees all before Him today. Have pity on us. See that our hearts are true. We ask Thee to see that we do that which is good for us and our children. We smoke this together before Thee, O Great Spirit. So may our hearts go together to Thee and be made good and right.

 We have no desire to convince anyone that there is only one way by which faith can be acquired. If what we have learned and felt and seen means anything at all, it means that all of us, whatever our race, creed, or color are the children of a living Creator with whom we may form a relationship upon simple and understandable terms as soon as we are willing and honest enough to try. Those having religious affiliations will find nothing disturbing to their beliefs or ceremonies. There is no friction among us over such matters.

We think it no concern of ours what religious bodies our members identify themselves with as individuals. This should be an entirely personal affair which each one decides for himself in the light of past associations, or his present choice. Not all of us join religious bodies, but most of us favor such memberships.
