  • I don't know what religion that I have to believe. Is it Lakota or catholic? How can it really be both, when their are different types of ceremonies and different things to believe? How can you just mash two religions into one?

    I believe that they just want us to follow theirs because we may seem weak. If you really look at it we were just fine before everyone tired to make us believe something else. How can a church be so cruel as to tell us we can't follow our own religion but you can follow yours? How can you bask in the glory of your church who has sinned against my native people?

    I don't know what to believe in anymore. Catholicism isn't for me lakota tradition is. I go to a Lakota Catholic school, but I will never following in the catholic ways their too foreign for me. Instead I will continue to go on with the ways I were taught and go one teaching my children so that some day they can teach their own children. So our nation won't just fade away.
