Dakota Silence

Cherokee PinterestFrom Cherokee Feast of Days
Joyce Sequichie Hifler

Little quiet spells are as rare as jewels. Many can’t stand even a little silence and try to fill it with empty chatter — or with words that should never have been spoken.

It is a great art to be silent. The Cherokee calls it da lo ni ge s to di – e lu we i, which is golden silence.

We paint with our words that which we want others to see, and we choose colors to communicate, to understand, to sense. The fewest words make silence speak most eloquently.


The fruits of silence are self-control, courage,
endurance, patience and dignity.
