I Want to Go Back

I really want to go back to the Rez. I miss it. Not just the kids but all of the Lakota people and the Rez itself. It really feels like home to me. I'm not even sure what else to say ... I just miss being there and would be in a car headed there tomorrow if I could be.

Tonight we watched a movie called Thunderheart. It appears to have been filmed on the Rez and is a really good movie. Its fiction but inspired by true events and captures the injustice that has been done and is still being done to the Lakota. You can watch it free online here.

Sigh ... I want to go back.

You will go back, hon, hopefully soon.

I saw that movie because of my massive crush on Val. It was good. I should watch it again now that I "know" the Lakota more personally through you.
