Great chief of all the land, the sky, the waters, you made mother earth from where everything comes. Winter has come, the trees are without leaves and the cold winds bring snow and ice. Give to us the sweet fruits of winter and let our bows find fat game to make our stomachs big. Let us stay warm as the snow becomes ice and the days become short. Make our paths this winter good. Let us remember the warm days of spring. I give thanks to you and the earth mother for all you have given.
