Chief Crowfoot on Life and Death

Blackfoot Chief Crowfoot

A little while and I will be gone from among you, whither I cannot tell.
From nowhere we came, into nowhere we go.
What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night.
It is the breath of a buffalo in the winter time.
It is as the little shadow that runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
Chief Crowfoot, Blackfoot Warrior and Orator
