THE DEER



The Deer

When we kill the deer--

our men kill deer--

they don't waste any kinds of bones or antlers or the meat;

they share the meat.

Back a long time ago the village would be like this--

they shared their meat with one other,

and we don't do that as much anymore.

Whenever we have bones,

they saved the bones for the knitting, for the crocheting,

and used all parts of the deer,

it's not wasted.

And when they go hunting,

they only get one,

they don't get all the deer out there.

And they save it for the next person.
