Tim Giago
b. 1934; Pine Ridge Reservation, SD

Tim Giago's voice rises with anger when he talks of his childhood. Born in 1934 on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, he grew up in a time when Native American culture was strongly discouraged. At age six, Tim went to live at a boarding school of Indians. Students' heads were shaved so they could not hae traditional tribal hairstyles, and anyone caught speaking a tribal language was beaten. “It was like a prison,” he says. He joined the U.S. Navy at 17, and completed high school while serving in Japan. He later earned a degree in business from the University of Nevada.

Today, Mr. Giago, an Oglala Sioux, is a leading Native American journalist, and he writes to help people understand the struggles Native Amerians have faced. He began his writing career as a reporter for a South Dakota newspaper in 1981. Mr. Giago founded the Lakota Times, an Indian newspaper for the people of the Pine Ridge Reservation. The paper was so successful that Mr. Giago expanded its coverage and renamed it Indian Country Today. Today it is America's largest Indian-owned newspaper. In 1998, Mr. Giago sold Indian Country Today to the Oneida Nation, although he continues to write for the newspaper.

Mr. Giago has also written books [Children Left Behind: The Dark Legacy of Indian Mission Boarding Schools], one of them about his experiences at boarding school. He believes that his writing has helped him deal with his own childhood and has also helped others understand native American culture.

Khalili Gibran was an artist, poet and writer best known for his 1923 book The Prophet, a series of philosophical essays written in English prose.

Khalil Gibran quotes ~
• “Work is love made visible.”
• “Your daily life is your temple and your religion. When you enter into it take with you your all.”
• “Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”
• “You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”
• “For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.”

André Gide quotes ~
“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”
“To know how to free oneself is nothing; the arduous thing is to know what to do with one's freedom.”
Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.”
“It is easier to lead men to combat, stirring up their passion, than to restrain them and direct them toward the patient labour of peace.”
