Feeling light within, I walk. With lively feelings, I walk. It is finished in beauty. It is finished in beauty.”


“Getting into the car to drive home was the hardest thing I’ve done all week.  I had no desire to leave the sunset, the hills, the drumming, our Lakota friends.  But our time in Rosebud has come to an end—for now. But, they stay in my heart.”

“Seeing buffalo grazing on the green hills, surrounded by pine trees on Lakota tribal land was truly a spiritual experience…feeling connected with spirit…with South Dakota.”
