MNN. Oct. 31, 2020. ohenton kariwatekwen: These thanksgiving words are spoken at every gathering of the people. The orator thanks all that helps human life, the trees, water, winds, and so on and the power that produces them; they express their gratitude to the Earth where men dwell, to the streams of water, the pools and the lakes, to the maise and the fruits, to the medicinal herbs, to the animals that serve as food and give their pelts for clothing, to the thunderers; to the Sun, the mighty warrior, to the moon helper of all female life; to all the messengers of Creation that provide health and life.
