                              Spirit Animals

Spirit Animals are animals that we are born with.
Native  believe that upon birth an animal's spirit
enters into that person.Its duties are to keep each
person strong and wise as well as to excel in
matters of attributes given to that Animal.

A Deer is an animal of love, tenderness, & swiftness.
There is an old story about the animal kingdom wanting
to get into heaven to see the Almighty God.
At a council meeting all the animals stood up to tell why
they would be  the most appropriate one to get to the
kingdom of God. The Bear stood up and said,
" I, Bear , who is the strongest bravest creature will go
to see the Creator".

Upon the road to the Creator stood a big , nasty,
monster. The bear took one look and ran back to
the animal kingdom to tell of the nasty, monster.
The Eagle Screeched, "I will fly over the monster to
get to see the Creator".

                                        Off went the eagle.He flew
                                        higher and higher and got
                                             closer to the kingdom of the
                      Creator than any
                                                  other animal before.He started
                            to screech a prayer.
                                      "Almighty Great Creator,
                                          I so would like to see You".
                                        The Almighty Creator said,
                                              "It is true you are the best at
                                                  reaching high enough to talk to me,
                                                but a messenger is all you will be.

Tell the rest of the animals that they have to go
through the red road of truth to find me".
       The eagle said to The Almighty Creator," But there
is a monster in the way ,how can we cross?
       The Almighty said no further. The eagle went back
and told all the animals of what the Almighty
        had said to him.And all the animals started to fight
and argue.
The Deer hearing such a roar jumped so high he landed
right in front of the nasty monster.The deer looked into
the eyes of the monster and stared.
The monster looked deep into the deer's eyes and saw
love, warmth and tenderness,and upon seeing that the
monster melted away. And so the deer was the first
to go through the red road of truth to see the Almighty
