PRAYER FOR LORI
PFC Lori Piestawa, 507th Transport… KIA… IraqIf I were Hopi
I would call you Tawamana. (SunGirl)
You would have called me
Evava. (older Brother)
I pray now
at the time of Wuwuchim.
I pray that Taiowa (Great Spirit)
has granted you the name,
Hililis. (warrior’s spirit)
That Kwahu (the Eagle)
has carried you home.
… and that Kisa (the Hawk)
shall watch over your children,
and your Chaco home.
