Cherokee Prayer Blessing/Our Home

Hi Everybody,

Countless times after we have done a school assembly, a small child has approached us with big saucer eyes and whispered softly “Do you live in a tipi?”  To set the record straight, we do not live in a tipi.  We live in a custom built house on the west side of Colorado Springs, CO.  Here’s some pictures:

We hope your home brings you as much peace, happiness, and joy as we have known in ours.

Cherokee Prayer Blessing
May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.

Gakina-awiiya (We Are All Related),

Chief Robert and Terri Lynn TallTree

“Teach us love, compassion and honor…that we may heal the Earth, and heal each other.”   - Ojibwe prayer

    Thank you so much for sharing the pictures of your home.It looks like a happy home. I have a dream of moving to the Colorado Springs area someday. It is so beautiful in your area and I was hoping for a quieter life style than one that exist in So. California.

    However, I currently live on 20 acres, on top of a small mountain, between LA and San Diego.
    I have many reasons to stay right where I am and count my blessings. I have the pleasure to hear the voices of hawks daily. To smell the sage in the early morning dew. To watch a small lizard do “push-ups” on a granite rock.

    Then I stumbled upon your website and realized that I needed the prayer that you so graciously wrote down. Thank you.

    I pray weekly to the spirits of the wind, land, and the Great Spirit.
    It is weird how one is led in the direction they need to go. My great-grandmother was Objiwa (from Canada) and you have one of their prayers too.

    I will complete the Cherokee prayer and Objiwe one too…often.

    Hello, Neat post. There is an issue along with your site in internet explorer, could check this… IE still is the market chief and a big section of other folks will pass over your great writing due to this problem.
