The Navajo Creation Story
U of New Mexico P, 1984


In harmony may I walk.
With harmony before me may I walk.
With harmony behind me may I walk.
With harmony above me may I walk.
With harmony underneath my feet, may I walk.
With harmony all around me may I walk.
It is done in harmony.

~A Navajo Prayer~
