East Hampton Trails Preservation Society


We are thankful to our Mother, Earth,

for she gives us all that we need for life.

She supports our feet as we walk upon her.

It gives us joy that she continues to care for us

as she has from the beginning of time. To our

Mother, we send greetings and thanks.

From an Iroquois thanksgiving address
