1. Great Spirit firstly I pray.
Great Spirit firstly I pray.
With my relatives I shall live, so That’s why I pray to Him first.
2. I pray to God (Grandfather) first I pray to God (Grandfather) first
With my relatives I shall live, so That’s why I pray to Him first.

Note: Wankan Tanka is Great Spirit Father (17). Great Spirit Father teaches us to become Great Spirits (I am), when we are holy walking and talking. His eyes, vision of the world inside of this sacred rock, leads us to the just path, holy and true, divine that swoons, like a cradle that rocks the world. Tunkasila is Grandfather (15), a star that guides the waves, shining forth. Look at me, he says. A teaching of humility, the sacred bow.
