Creed

“My horse fights with me
and fasts with me,
because if he is to carry me into battle
he must know my heart
and I must know his
or we shall never become brothers.
I have been told that the white man
who is almost a god, and yet a great fool,
does not believe that the horse has a spirit.
This cannot be true. I have many times seen
my horse’s soul in his eyes.”

-The words of Crow Chief Plenty-Coups
