Cherokee in Spirit

I'm not sure if I have any Cherokee in me.  I am from the Southeast US so it is possible.  However, my fair complexion, light brown hair, round blue eyes, and freckles make me look Western European.

Regardless of my genetic origin, I've decided I like this part of the Cherokee perspective, "harmony with nature, sustainability, personal freedom, and balance between work, play, and praise."  Sounds nice doesn't it?

I also like many other Native American Perspectives, which I find very insightful and true.  They include:
When we show our respect for other living things, they respond with respect for us. - Arapaho Proverb
Remember that your children are not your own, but are lent to you by the Creator.  - Mohawk Proverb
