AMERICAN INDIAN OBITUARIES

Eventually one gets to the Medicine Wheel to fulfill one's life.
- Old Mouse, Arikara

NATIVE AMERICAN WISDOM

We live, we die, and like the grass and trees, renew ourselves from the soft earth of the grave. Stones crumble and decay, faiths grow old and they are forgotten, but new beliefs are born. The faith of the villages is dust now... but it will grow again... like the trees.
- Chief Joseph, Nez Perce (1840-1904)

Leroy "Lucas" Miranda
1939-2013
Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians
On Friday, August 9, 2013 I attended the funeral of a lifelong friend, Leroy "Lucas" Miranda. "Lucas", we seem to have always called him "Lucas" since he was tagged with the nickname. How he came about the nick name and who he was as a friend is what I want to share with you.
"Leroy 'Lucas' Miranda was my friend; he was proud of his heritage, he was an honest man and a man of integrity. Those that knew him respected him as a man and as an elder,"
