Why There Are Indians

Long, Long Ago
When Creator First Thought About Making This North American Continent
There Were Many Things For Him To Consider
There Was The Problem Of Land
Forests
Animals
And Food
He Decided That These Things Would Have To Be Undertaken In Steps
So That Everything Would Work Properly

First
Creator Put The Lands Out In The Vast Ocean
These Lands Were Made Of Rocks And Sands
Which Are The Oldest Things Upon This Earth
With Both The North And South American Continents
The Oceans Were Divided
That Is Why There Is A Number Of Different Oceans Surrounding Them
Now, These Lands Were Barren

Creator Looked Upon Them And Was Not Happy
They Looked Too Much Alike To Suit Him
So He Created Mountains And Streams
Some Lands Were Made To Be Much Higher Than Others Were
Some Were Meant To Be Deserts
Some Were Meant To Be Near The Oceans
And Some Lands Were Meant To Be Very Cold
Now, Creator Was Happy

Second
He Made The Great Forests And The Plains
He Let These Things Grow And Mature
He Let Them Learn How To Exist In Relation To The Rivers And Streams
He Sent Rains Upon These Things, So That They Might Grow And Be Nourished
The Thunder And Lightning Were Signs Of His Power And Might
He Allowed The Plants To Make Air, Clean And Pure
Creator Put Great Beauty In These Creations
Such As Flowers And Many Colored Leaves
He Allowed These Trees To Bear Seeds
Nuts
Berries
And Shade For Future Uses
To Every Tree And Plant That He Put Here
There Was A Purpose Assigned
Creator Looked Upon This And He Saw That It Was Good

Third
Creator Placed The Many Varieties Of Birds And Animals Upon This Land
They All Learned How To Find Food And Shelter
They All Had A Wonderful Harmony Among Them
To Each Creature That He Made, He Assigned A Purpose
The Creator Looked Upon These Things And He Saw That It Was Good

As Creator Looked Upon The Vast Beauty Of The Lands
The Trees
The Animals
The Birds
And The Waters
He Smiled And He thought
I Must Put Man Here To Enjoy All Of My Great Creations
I Will Put Him Here
I Will Give Him The Purpose Of Keeper Of All Of My Great Creations

So, Fourth
The Creator Put Man Upon This Continent
Some Were Created Out Of The Desert Sands
Some Were Created From The Grasses Of The Plains
Some Were Created Out Of The Great Mounds
Some Were Created Out Of The Great Forests and Swamps
Some Were Created Out Of The Great Mountains
And Still Others Were Created From The Ice And Snows Of The Far Northern Lands

The Creator Did Not Call These People Native Americans Or Indians
He Called Them Human Beings "People"
These People Were Created In The Image Of Our Great Creator
Creator Was Very Pleased With These Native Peoples
They Used His Creations With Care And Honor
Human Nature Being What It Was
The Different Tribes Sometimes Fought Over Territories
But There Was Great Peace Across The Land As A Whole
Although They Spoke Many Different Languages And Dialects
They Could All Communicate With Each Other
The Creator Looked Down Upon This And He Saw That It Was Very Good
He Smiled Upon All Of His Creations

That Was Many Thousands Of Years Ago
Our People No Longer Have Possession Of The Lands
Or Control Over The Animals And Forests
But Some Of Us Still Remember The Creator's Purpose
Which He Gave To Our Ancestors
And We Still Try To Do These Things
