Hearing these songs Floods my heart with Good memories of long ago when ALL the Old Ones (Our Grandparents) were still here! There was a Language barrier even amongst the Grandparents n grandchildren, but they SHOWED us what they were doing n We was youtu.be/S03llgFtMWw

watching Every step of the way. They were Showing us he Unviersal language, that anybody could understand, if you just Watch. REMEMBER, Our Sacred Sundance was once Banned by the United States Government. We had the 1st Legal Sundance in 1974 on the Rosebud Reservation in
South Dakota. My Grandfather Bill Schweigman aka Chief Eagle Feather is the 1st Legal Sundance Chief. Our Sundance was Banned, but Our Grandparents STILL Sundanced. It was keeped Underground and Only the Traditional Ndns knew where they were being held n When. If they were caught
doing these Dances they could be Charged n Arrested. Our Grandparents Showed n Taught us a Great Many things, despite that language barrier. NOW, I understand why they wanted us to Only speak english, So Our Fight will be Equal to the White Man BUT OUR Tradition n Culture will
be STRONG. It will be Strong to get us thru Those Hard Times that the White Man can put us thru! Lililililili! Wopilatanka, Gakala! Mitakuye O'yasin. ⚪🟡🔴⚫ #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth
