The Gift of Silence

Lakota Narrative on SILENCE
from Aŋpétu Wašté Wiŋ
(1889–1971):

“We Indians know about silence. We are not afraid of it. In fact, for us,
silence is more powerful than words. Our elders were trained in the ways of
silence, and they handed over this knowledge to us. Observe, listen, and
then act, they would tell us. That was the manner of living.
