Pacific Mountain Regional Council
Today – or perhaps tomorrow, or sometime this week – you are invited to bring your presence to this 5 minute Reflection offered by Rev John Snow, Indigenous Minister Pacific Mountain Regional Council. In the wake of secret graves being revealed this June in BC, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and knowing more will rise, Rev. John Snow offers this Scripture, Song of the Dakota 38 and Stoney Prayer.
Isaiah 53: 2-6
“Dakota Hymn” / Lacquiparle by Joseph R. Renville (1842), paraphrased by R. Phillip Frazier (1929).
Wakantanka taku nitawa
