While Westerners might see the battle between night and day as a battle for
dominance, Native Americans see the battle itself as a striving for homeostasis.
KATHRYN GABRIEL
Gambler Way

For indeed, the enemy,
Even though he was without value . . .
Yet he was a water being;
He was a seed being.
* * * *
Though in his life
he was a person given to falsehood,
He has become one to foretell
How the world will be,
How the days will be.
ZUNI INFORMANT OF RUTH L. BUNZEL
“Prayers of the Scalp Dance,” Word Priest’s speech
