Giving Thanks: A Native American Good Morning Message
For as long as anyone can remember, Mohawk parents have taught their children to start each day by giving thanks to Mother Earth. Also known as the Thanksgiving Address, this good morning message is based on the belief that the natural world is a precious and rare gift. The whole universe – from the highest stars to the tiniest blade of grass – is addressed as one great family.
Chief Swamp’s inspirational message, along with Erwin Printup, Jr.’s unforgettable landscapes, make Giving Thanks a timeless celebration of the spirit of nature.
