Native American Crow Prayer to Abcadadea

In the Native American Crow language, 'Acbadadea’ is ‘the maker of all things'. Abcadadea is the equivalent of the Akan Odomankoma.

While reading the book Yellowtail Crow Medicine Man and Sun Dance Chief  I came across a section of the book that I thought was most interesting in that it paralleled Akan spirituality almost exactly. The account is now given below:

Acbadadea is the Maker of All Things. It is the name given to God, the Maker of All things above. It is the way the Crow express God as being in the Creator, the Maker of All Things, Who is Above and Beyond this world but Who has created and continues to give life to this world.[i.e. reference to Game Creator(s)]. This is what Acbadadea means.

When we pray, we always say our prayers in Crow. We always say,

"Acbadadea, Maker and Creator of All things, we pray to you. You are beyond all things that are in this world, and You are also present through all things."

We say that and then we continue on with our prayers." So when we pray for help to the Medicine Rock or to Seven Arrows or to any of the different Medicine Fathers, we are praying to them as representatives of Acbadadea, [see section 5.15 of The Akan book] because they are closer to Him than we are, and they represent Him in this world that we live in. So when we pray to the Medicine Fathers, we pray to Acbadadea also.

...Grandmother Earth is a way of expressing that part of Acbadadea which is created in this world, because all that we have in this world is created by and from Acbadadea, but Acbadadea is also above all things. It is the same for the Medicine Fathers. When I move the pipe in a circle to all of the four directions, it also has a similar meaning, because all the winds, the powers, and Nature, wherever you look or wherever you go, come from Adbadadea. By recognizing this and by thinking about this, you can understand a great deal about who you are.

The Crow believe that Acbadadea created the world and all the animals, including man, a long time ago. At that time, man lived close to Nature and to God and remembered all the things that God expected of man. There were very few problems and everyone prayed. As time passed, men forgot to pray and trouble began.

...It is only through the strict observance of this ceremony [the sun dance] that our tribe and the world world can stay close to Acbadadea. If we fail to follow the traditional ceremonies, then conditions will become worse and worse for individuals who forget, for the tribe itself, and for the world as a whole. Finally, the prophecies say that when enough people have forgotten to follow the way to their Maker, then the world will end. It is only through prayer and the observance of the sacred rites that the world can continue. It seems that this is a universal feeling among all Indians, because I have met many men from different tribes who feel this way. There may be some small differences but most of the spiritual men agree on this outlook.
