Good article Ray. Some of us on the reservations are speaking up, reaching out, taking children in to provide them with shelter and comfort, walking through the "system" with others, digging graves for those who have gone home. We do need our numbers to grow and some of us are getting worn out and old. Your article tells it pretty clearly from another direction without the usual words that seem to have lost their meaning. The only thing we would suggest is that you name the "wise elder" instead of giving him "a pass". Perhaps you'd named someone else but I name Wallace Black Elk.
