Blackfoot Teepee

Blackfoot Teepee by Edward S. Curtis

“What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.”

– Crowfoot, Blackfoot warrior and orator


Life is not separate from death. It only looks that way.
