for a while I just sit there, in the cooling shade of my favorite tree. everything is perfect. perfect as can be, under my favorite tree that loves and adores the company of me. soon I tire just sitting there, and so I start to climb up its smooth, brown bark...up into the branches so high. I start to slip, but it catches me, and lets me know I'm safe...even when the wind pushes me, and when I look out at the sky up high because its my favorite tree, that loves and adores me.

The first people who were living in the grand canyon were, indians,before the explores decided to explore the grand canyon. The grand canyon is located in Williams, Arizona,The indians were the original settler's. At the time it was in the 1500's. that is when the indians, well some of them were given reservations, and forced to leave the place that their ancestors lived for hundreds  of years, before the ''explorers'' even came to the deep west. How would we feel if  some more advanced people threaten us to kill our people if we don't give them this land. Point is that we should learn to share what ever is that we have.
