"We were a warrior society, and that's very much a part of our culture. We have an expression that whoever didn't fear us, hated us, and we took great pride in the fact that everyone either hated us or feared us. The Cree people in their stories would say,'When the Crow were coming to fight, we sent our little boys to fight. When the Mandan were coming, we sent the old men. When the Sioux were coming, we painted our faces for death and prepared to die.'"

I became interested in the delemma the sioux have found themselves in after watching an interview with Charlotte. and would love to talk with her. It has be come apparent that calling the americans indians, was convenient and would serve its purpose. Why hasnt it been corrected? US citizens born abroad are exactly, that. Im a white citizen who has lived in Europe 35 yrs. most of my life. I was not taught the truth in school LA county 1960's.Charlotte do you really believe there is a chance that the Black hills will be returned? Ive never been io SDThere must be alot of resentment.You people have so much that cant be taken from you integrity and virtue are not assets posessed by many.
