    I wish I could go back in time to live with and learn the lifestyle of the original Oceti Sakowin people of my area. As I get older my heart aches to know more about these wonderful people. I'm becoming very dis-illusioned with this world we have now. I am missing people and a lifestyle that I don't even know. God Bless Native America and all the Oceti Sakowin from the past to the present. Wahpekute Cante Ska. Woksape Cante. Oceti Sakowin Cante.
