When a child my mother taught me the legends of our people;
taught me of the sun and sky, the moon and stars, the clouds
and storms. She also taught me to kneel and pray to Usen for
strength, health, wisdom, and protection. We never prayed
against any person, but if we had aught against any
individual we ourselves took vengeance. We were taught
that Usen does not care for the petty quarrels of men.

(Chiricahua Apache chief)
