Native American Church quotes by Quanah Parker
#1. The White Man goes into his church and talks about Jesus. The Indian goes into his tipi and talks with Jesus. #Quote by Quanah Parker
Native American Church quotes by Brennan Manning
#2. The gospel of grace nullifies our adulation of televangelists, charismatic superstars, and local church heroes. It obliterates the two-class citizenship theory operative in many American churches. For grace proclaims the awesome truth that all is gift. All that is good is ours, not by right, but by the sheer bounty of a gracious God. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Native American Church quotes by Joshua Wolf Shenk
#3. The American tradition of separation of church and state grew directly from the freethinking of the Founders. After political independence, they considered independence of thought and belief a logical next step. #Quote by Joshua Wolf Shenk
Native American Church quotes by Tommy Orange
#4. We made powwows because we needed a place to be together. Something intertribal, something old, something to make us money, something we could work toward, for our jewelry, our songs, our dances, our drum. #Quote by Tommy Orange
Native American Church quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#5. The Indian navigator naturally distinguishes by a name those parts of a stream where he has encountered quick water and forks, andagain, the lakes and smooth water where he can rest his weary arms, since those are the most interesting and more arable parts to him. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Native American Church quotes by Bernard Lewis
#6. Secularism in the Christian world was an attempt to resolve the long and destructive struggle of church and state. Separation, adopted in the American and French Revolutions and elsewhere after that, was designed to prevent two things: the use of religion by the state to reinforce and extend its authority; and the use of the state power by the clergy to impose their doctrines and rules on others. This is a problem long seen as purely Christian, not relevant to Muslims or for that matter to Jews, for whom a similar problem has arisen in Israel. Looking at the contemporary Middle East, both Muslim and Jewish, one must ask whether this is still true
or whether Muslims and Jews may perhaps have caught a Christian disease and might therefore consider a Christian remedy. #Quote by Bernard Lewis
Native American Church quotes by Nicolas Cage
#7. I always see America as really belonging to the Native Americans. Even though I'm American, I still feel like a visitor in my own country. #Quote by Nicolas Cage
Native American Church quotes by Douglas Coupland
#8. Look, Neal, Hawaii is not some magical pixie wonderland; it's an American state populated by atomic weapons, a remnant native population and people too stupid to spell their way out of a paper bag. Most of them came here to escape pathetic lives in the forty nine other states, so in some sense, Hawaii is a scenic cul-de-sac filled with people who want to drink themselves to death without feeling judged. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Native American Church quotes by Russell D. Moore
#9. As American culture changes, the scandal of Christianity is increasingly right up front, exactly where it was in the first century. The shaking of American culture will get us back to the question Jesus asked his disciples at Caesarea Philippi: "Who do you say that I am?" As the Bible Belt recedes, those left standing up for Jesus will be those who, like Simon Peter of old, know how to answer that question. Once Christianity is no longer seen as part and parcel of patriotism, the church must offer more than "What would Jesus do?" moralism and the "I vote values" populism to which we've grown accustomed. Good. #Quote by Russell D. Moore
Native American Church quotes by Zita Steele
#10. The Diné are children of the sun. They are rugged and graceful people. They love the radiance of color and silver, the purity of nature, and the speed of horses. They have a gift for adaptation and creativity. They do everything with spontaneity and flair. #Quote by Zita Steele
Native American Church quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#11. There can be no more ancient and traditional American value than ignorance. English-only speakers brought it with them to this country three centuries ago, and they quickly imposed it on the Africans
who were not allowed to learn to read and write
and on the Native Americans, who were simply not allowed. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Native American Church quotes by Annalee Newitz
#12. 'Avatar' imaginatively revisits the crime scene of white America's foundational act of genocide, in which entire native tribes and civilizations were wiped out by European immigrants to the American continent. #Quote by Annalee Newitz
Native American Church quotes by Larissa Ione
#13. Giving herself a mental shake, she jumped back into the conversation. "It would help if we knew the exact origins of the vampire species. We think the first case of vampirism started around four hundred years ago, here in America, but we don't know where the virus came from, if it was originally airborne - "
Grant took a sip of his purple concoction and grimaced. "You know the vampire legend of their origins, yes?"
"Yes, but the legend is ridiculous."
"Is it?" He had to be kidding.
"Two Native American tribal chiefs kill each other, and then a crow and a raven fight over their bodies, spilling their blood into the men, who afterward rise that night as undead? Um, yes. Ridiculous."
"Some vampires agree with you. Mostly the turned ones. There are also rumors of demons creating the first vampires, but if they are so much as whispered inside these walls, Hunter will shut them down with rare temper. #Quote by Larissa Ione
Native American Church quotes by Willa Cather
#14. When the Cathedral bell tolled just after dark, the Mexican population of Santa Fe fell upon their knees, and all American Catholics as well. Many others who did not kneel prayed in their hearts. Eusabio and the Tesuque boys went quietly away to tell their people; and the next morning the old Archbishop lay before the high altar in the church he had built. #Quote by Willa Cather
Native American Church quotes by Paul Beatty
#15. But in the end we found it impossible to ignore the impassioned pleas of the Lost City of White Male Privilege, a controversial municipality whose very existence is often denied by many (mostly privileged white males). Others state categorically that the walls of the locale have been irreparably breached by hip-hop and Roberto Bolaño's prose. That the popularity of the spicy tuna roll and a black American president were to white male domination what the smallpox blankets were to Native American existence. Those inclined to believe in free will and the free market argue that the Lost City of White Male Privilege was responsible for its own demise, that the constant stream of contradictory religious and secular edicts from on high confused the highly impressionable white male. Reduced him to a state of such severe social and psychic anxiety that he stopped fucking. Stopped voting. Stopped reading. And, most important, stopped thinking that he was the end-all, be-all, or at least knew enough to pretend not to be so in public. But in any case, it became impossible to walk the streets of the Lost City of White Male Privilege, feeding your ego by reciting mythological truisms like "We built this country!" when all around you brown men were constantly hammering and nailing, cooking world-class French meals, and repairing your cars. You couldn't shout "America, love it or leave it!" when deep down inside you longed to live in Toronto. #Quote by Paul Beatty
Native American Church quotes by Margot Lee Shetterly
#16. But nearly three decades earlier, World War I had also been heralded as the event that would break the back of race prejudice. "With thousands of your sons in the camps and in France, out of this conflict you must expect nothing less than the enjoyment of full citizenship rights - the same as are enjoyed by every other citizen," President Woodrow Wilson, a native Virginian, vowed to American blacks #Quote by Margot Lee Shetterly
Native American Church quotes by Louis Farrakhan
#17. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said Allah God has come to fight the battle of justice for the Black man and woman of America and it is He who is plaguing America with the disasters of unusual rain, hail, snow, and soon earthquakes. So if the Black man and woman and the Native Americans, or Indians, are not in the equation of those running for the high office of the Presidency of the United States, if we are not in the equation for justice, then none of these candidates can save America from the Wrath of Allah. #Quote by Louis Farrakhan
Native American Church quotes by Wendy Kopp
#18. In the long run, we will need many more African-American, Latino, and Native American leaders, and leaders from low-income communities, who can bring additional insight and a deeply grounded sense of urgency, and who are the most likely to inspire the necessary trust and engagement among students' parents and community leaders. #Quote by Wendy Kopp
Native American Church quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#19. Legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State. Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Native American Church quotes by Linda Hogan
#20. What a strange alchemy we have worked, turning earth around to destroy itself, using earth's own elements to wound it. #Quote by Linda Hogan
Native American Church quotes by Louise Erdrich
#21. It's impossible to write about Native life without humor-that's how people maintain sanity. #Quote by Louise Erdrich
Native American Church quotes by Sherman Alexie
#22. Shit," he said. "I don't know why you're feeling sorry for yourself because you ain't had to fight a war. You're lucky. Shit, all you had was that damn Desert Storm. Should have called it Dessert Storm because it just made the fat cats get fatter. It was all sugar and whipped cream with a cherry on top. And besides that, you didn't even have to fight in it. All you lost during that was was sleep because you stayed up all night watching CNN. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Native American Church quotes by Native American Proverb
#23. Listen to the wind, it talks. Listen to the silence, it speaks. Listen to your heart, it knows. #Quote by Native American Proverb
Native American Church quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#24. I think that the farmer displaces the Indian even because he redeems the meadow, and so makes himself stronger and in some respects more natural. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Native American Church quotes by Sitting Bull
#25. A cold wind blew on the prairie on the day the last buffalo fell. A death wind for my people. #Quote by Sitting Bull
Native American Church quotes by Peter Akinola
#26. We have been filled with grief as we have witnessed the decline of the North American Church that was once filled with missionary zeal and yet now seems determined to bury itself in a deadly embrace with the spirit of the age. #Quote by Peter Akinola
Native American Church quotes by Robbie Robertson
#27. Think about the number of people who do film music, make records and have a Native American heritage - and I may be the only one on the list. #Quote by Robbie Robertson
Native American Church quotes by George W. Bush
#28. Those were comfortable, carefree years. The word I'd use now is idyllic. On Friday nights, we cheered on the Bulldogs of Midland High. On Sunday mornings, we went to church. Nobody locked their doors. Years later, when I would speak about the American Dream, it was Midland I had in mind. #Quote by George W. Bush
Native American Church quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#29. I am merely noting that the creation of native prostitutes to service foreign privates is an inevitable outcome of a war of occupation, one of those nasty little side effects of defending freedom that all the wives, sisters, girlfriends, mothers, pastors, and politicians in Smallville, USA, pretend to ignore behind waxed and buffed walls of teeth as they welcome their soldiers home, ready to treat any unmentionable afflictions with the penicillin of American goodness. #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Native American Church quotes by Eddie Izzard
#30. Makeup's just crazy, anyways. Native Americans used to wear it, and it did all right for them until, uh ... well, until you killed them all, I suppose. #Quote by Eddie Izzard
Native American Church quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#31. Even the great Thomas Paine, a friend to Franklin and Jefferson, repudiated the charge of atheism that he was not afraid to invite. Indeed, he set out to expose the crimes and horrors of the Old Testament, as well as the foolish myths of the New, as part of a vindication of god. No grand and noble deity, he asserted, should have such atrocities and stupidities laid to his charge. Paine's Age of Reason marks almost the first time that frank contempt for organized religion was openly expressed. It had a tremendous worldwide effect. His American friends and contemporaries, partly inspired by him to declare independence from the Hanoverian usurpers and their private Anglican Church, meanwhile achieved an extraordinary and unprecedented thing: the writing of a democratic and republican constitution that made no mention of god and that mentioned religion only when guaranteeing that it would always be separated from the state. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Native American Church quotes by Daniel Hill
#32. Acknowledging that all our land was stolen from Native people feels like too great a burden, so we create an alternative reality that allows us to disengage emotionally from the truth. #Quote by Daniel Hill
Native American Church quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#33. Forgiveness is a big part of - especially post-civil rights movement - is a big part of African-American Christianity, and I wasn't raised within the Christian church; I wasn't raised within any church. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Native American Church quotes by Carlos Mencia
#34. Do you think we care about the feelings of Native Americans when we celebrate Columbus Day? That's the day that the white man discovered a land where Indians had been living for a few thousand years. #Quote by Carlos Mencia
Native American Church quotes by Maya Angelou
#35. Won't it be wonderful when black history and native American history and Jewish history and all of U.S. history is taught from one book. Just U.S. history. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Native American Church quotes by Tori Amos
#36. The romantic myth of the artist says that you are the Source. I have no illusion about that. Native Americans don't believe they are the Source. They have access to the Source. Endless access. But don't get confused. #Quote by Tori Amos
Native American Church quotes by David Mamet
#37. American football seems to resemble soccer in that one scores by putting the ball through the opponent's goal; but football, truly is about land. The Settlers want to move the line of scrimmage Westward, the Native Americans want to move it East. #Quote by David Mamet
Native American Church quotes by Michael Pollan
#38. My guess is that the Jonathan would be as out of place in England or Kazakhstan, the native ground of its ancestors, as I would be in Russia, the native ground of my own. The arrow of natural history won't be reversed: by now the Jonathan's as much an American as I am. #Quote by Michael Pollan
Native American Church quotes by William Commanda
#39. Traditional people of Indian nations have interpreted the two roads that face the light-skinned race as the road to technology and the road to spirituality. We feel that the road to technology ... has led modern society to a damaged and seared earth. Could it be that the road to technology represents a rush to destruction, and that the road to spirituality represents the slower path that the traditional native people have traveled and are now seeking again? The earth is not scorched on this trail. The grass is still growing there. #Quote by William Commanda
Native American Church quotes by Dennis E. Staples
#40. We're boys. That's what we're supposed to do. #Quote by Dennis E. Staples
Native American Church quotes by Daniel Brook
#41. In its sacredness, families get together to (unintentionally?) celebrate one genocide (against Native Americans) by committing another (against turkeys). #Quote by Daniel Brook
Native American Church quotes by Patrick Henry, American Patriot
#42. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave."
Patrick Henry, St. John's Church, Richmond, VA, 1775 #Quote by Patrick Henry, American Patriot
Native American Church quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#43. The Indian's intercourse with Nature is at least such as admits of the greatest independence of each. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Native American Church quotes by Russell Means
#44. If I want my people to be free, Americans have to be free. #Quote by Russell Means
