Ohiyesa / Charles A. Eastman
The Soul of the Indian1911
Among us there were no more temples or sanctuaries than those of nature. Being a natural man, the Indian was intensely poetic. It would have been considered as a sacrilege to build a house for Him that we can find face to face in the mysterious primitive forest, or in the sunny sun of the virgin prairies, on the spiky needles and pinnacles of bare rock and beyond, in the vault of the night sky.
