I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being. And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father, And I saw that it was holy." 
From the vision of Black Elk 

 "This is the Day in which God's most excellent favors have been poured out upon men, the Day in which His most mighty grace hath been infused into all created things. It is incumbent upon all the peoples of the world to reconcile their differences, and, with perfect unity and peace, abide beneath the shadow of the Tree of His care and loving kindness. It behoveth them to cleave to whatsoever will, in this Day, be conducive to the exaltation of their stations, and to the promotion of their best interests."

" Attach great importance to the indigenous population of America. For these souls may be likened unto the ancient inhabitants of the Arabian Peninsula, who, prior to the Mission of Muhammad, were like unto savages. When the light of Muhammad shone forth in their midst, however, they became so radiant as to illumine the world. Likewise, these Indians , should they be educated and guided, there can be no doubt that they will become so illumined as to enlighten the whole world."

"It is a prophecy of the Bahá'í Faith that the original peoples of the Americas will become awakened, and in their awakening they shall illumine the world. That indeed is the destiny of the Native People of the Americas to lead the world back to their spiritual heritage and that this shall result in the day of Creator. For on this day of Man, the day of the Prophets will be past. It will be the beginning again, the Day of God. All the people will gather and have the opportunity to build the new nation. It is my prayer that this prophecy of the end times comes to pass, for it will mean the beginning of a golden age where humankind has once again to their awareness of their divine beginnings."
