Earth Day 2020 Climate Prayer- Chief Phil Lane Jr.
Description
Chief Phil Lane Jr. shares a prayer over Earth Day on the Parliament of the World's Religions' Youtube channel. He opens his prayer by referring to his audience as members of the human family, we are all united. He continues on to recognize how the Earth is the foundation of our lives, "From her we are born, and from her will we return." Our job on Earth is to understand the natural laws that govern our lives. The Dakota People recognize water as life, and as we pray, water will cleanse us.
