Native American type

If you had to set a Native American prayer in a typeface what would you choose?

Without getting stereotypical. Is there anything that would be appropriate?

Thanks

unrelated note: is the typophile search function down?

It helps in part to know the specific language you're writing in, to find a font that is compatible with the orthography.

A font that's personable with a calligraphic flair is good for prayers in general. Something like the current header font, Elli from The Font Bureau, would be good for a few lines on a poster, though perhaps a bit kitschy depending on the accompanying imagery (I can't really think of any spiritual poster I've seen that isn't kitschy), and too informal for a page of text.

Maybe a nice uncial.
