A Pueblo Indian Prayer- “Hold On”

Te Ata

Chickasaw storyteller and actress Mary Frances “Te Ata” Fisher was the first person to be declared an “Oklahoma Treasure” by the state.

My Great Great Grandmother Irene, a full blood Chickasaw Indian, told me this in 1973 as she prepared to depart this earth. I think of it often and I hope you appreciate the beauty of this prayer.

“Hold on to what is good, even if it’s a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe, even if it’s a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do, even if it’s a long way from here.
Hold on to your life, even if it’s easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand, even if someday I’ll be gone away from you.”

~A Pueblo Indian Prayer
