Native American Ten Commandments

The Earth is our Mother; care for her.

Honor all your relations.

Open your heart and soul to the Great Spirit.

All life is sacred; treat all beings with respect.

Take from the earth what is needed and nothing more.

Do what needs to be done for the good of all.

Give constant thanks to the Great Spirit for each new day.

Speak the truth; but only of good in others.

Follow the rhythms of nature; rise and retire with the sun.
