The Wise Giraffe
The wise giraffe understands the cycles of life and death. That is why, even in the face of adversity, this fearless creature can stand quietly and proudly.
Medicine men strive to reach the giraffe’s lofty stature and strength. One should try and achieve for the greater good of the society, much like the giraffe. Animal tales recounted by Native Elders illustrate how we should all work towards achieving a common goal.
The lesson to be learned from these stories is that people should aim high in their beliefs. Man must also introspect and become self-aware, just as the giraffe does.
