Respect Pe Sla as a Sacred Place
Lakota who have been utilizing Black Hills for prayer, know Mother Earth.
They have an intimate relationship with Her.
They can hear Her. They can listen to Her. They know how to respond to Her directives.
This has not changed through genocide, colonization, and resulting poverty.
Through the wisdom of experiencing soul sickness, and the process of crawling out of that
condition into strong spirit, the Lakota know how to relate to this Land that has been a part of their Life for Time Immemorial.
Mother Earth seeks Balance, always.
Our Planet needs us to lend our soul "ears".
I support the Lakota in their work to get Pe Sla off the auction block, I hope you will do.
