Grandfather says that when your friends die you must not cry. You must not hurt anybody or do harm to anyone. You must not fight. Do right always.
It will give you satisfaction in life.

When the sun died, I went up to heaven and saw God and all the people who had died a long time ago.
God told me to come back and tell my people they must be good and love one another, and not fight, or steal, or lie.
He gave me this dance to give to my people.

Wovoka, Paiute
