"Tatanka Iyotake" or well-known to people as "Sitting Bull" is the first American Indian I know. After I watched Pocahontas, Native American culture and life style became one of the areas I'm interested in and I met "Sitting Bull" and the whole Native Americans in that way.
Their life is so simple and so peaceful that I'm looking for that kind of life style in these days, because in today's world life is getting harder and harder and whatever you do, you may not be appreciated by other people and your work can go waste. We should not make our lives more complicated, we should be happy with little things but most of the people can find it ridiculous and insane. What I'm trying to say in these paragraph is Native Americans know how to live in a good environment that is simple and all tribe members need each other's work. In a tribe all work is worthy and deserve to be appreciated.
Their respect to the nature is one the things I adopted from them. They are human beings with great respect to the environment they live in and sadly we forgot to respect to the nature today, and this situation will not be good for our next generations.
Apart from these, I like their clothes, handcrafts, stuff they use in their daily life and their spiritual thoughts and acts, because they are interesting for me and I try to understand their looking angle to life which does not aim "gaining something or possesing things".
If you are interested in Native American culture and life style you can find many books available, but I highly recommend you to check "American Indians by Robert J. Moore" if you want a pictorial journey to Native American culture. I finish my article with an old saying from Blackfoot:
"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."
