“I had a dream one time that I was the Caller of the Medicine Lodge. It was my duty to call on all the people, so that the ceremony could begin. Everything was just right as I stood at the entrance to the lodge with the staff stick over my shoulder and my head held high. I started my journey into the lodge. I felt powerful. ‘In the Creator’s name’, I said, ‘we must direct ourselves to the Creator, because it is the Creator that gives us life. It is the Creator that gives us knowledge.’ I felt so good in that dream. I felt so good that I didn’t want to leave it.”
