Tears of joy stream down my face! VICTORY for the "Human Beings"! It is a shame that the land had to be purchased instead of returned, but this is how it must have had to be under the circumstances. I am of the Rainbow Nation, 1/4 Cherokee and mixed. I was blessed to be taught the Lakota way by pipe holders in Minnesota from '93 to '03, and still do my best to walk in balance on the Good Red Road by sharing with others, these beautiful ways. I could not be happier to hear this news!I wanted so much to make a donation when i heard about this, all I could do was offer my most heartfelt prayers for this to come into fruition! Pilamaya aloh Tankashila, and Thank You ALL who donated to make certain this happened! CELEBRATE this huge victory my cousins, and know I am celebrating with you all! Hetch etu aloh! Mitakuye oyasin aho!
