Teaching of Chief Tecumseh of the Shawnee Nation
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide . . . .
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled
with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep
and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.
Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.
