“I am not dreaming. I’m awake. I’ve been woken by the spirit inside. That demanded I opened my eyes and see the world around me. Seeing that my children’s future was in peril. See that my life couldn’t wait and slumber anymore. See that I was honored to be among those who are awake. To be alive at this point in time is to see the rising of the Oceti Sakowin. To see the gathering of nations and beyond that, the gathering of all races and all faiths.
Will you wake up and dream with us? Will you join our dream. Will you join us?”
– Floris White Bull
