Here was something I've been trying to find for ages...

9) Ma’heo’o Tsehehe’tovatsemenoto tsehestoestoveto he’amo’omee’e,
God the one who is our father who is in heaven (above-realm),
I wish for you to be respected.
10) Nehvehonoo’estse. Momoxeaahtoneto hetseno ho’eva
Sit as chief! I wish for you to be listened to / obeyed here on earth
hapo’e tsehesheaahtoneto heneheohe he’amo’omee’e.
likewise as you are listened to there in heaven.
11) Hetse esheeva nexhoxomemeno.
Today feed us.
12) Naa vonetano’totse nahtavesevo’eetahestonanotse hapo’e
And forget about our bad-doings (sins) likewise
tseohkeheshevonetano’tomovotse vo’estaneo’o tsehavesevo’eehaetsee’e.
as we forget about them people what they do bad to us.
13) Hoonestano’tovemeno vonohoha’ovahtsestova naa ne’aseotsheshemeno
Restrain us from daring / tempting each other but take us away from
where it is evil/bad.
Naa tsehneehoveto nevehonoo’e, nehohaatamaahe, naa
And you (yourself) you sit as chief, you are powerful, and
nevo’ho’eho’hevatamaahe hetsetseha naa a’ene’xoveva.
you have a lighted character now and forever.

The lord's prayer in Cheyenne. Lovely.

And in Creek as well...

Pu'rke hvlwe liketskat,

Find it in your language...
