 Rosebud Camp was raided by BIA and they have full control of it now.
Elders were arrested. Veterans were arrested.
Journalists were arrested. I saw an Inipi destroyed in front of my eyes.
I'm back safe. My hand and leg are sprained. 
I feel a sadness today. The river weeps.

The Prayer continues in our hearts and souls.
