It Is As It Is

samminism and the medicine wheel

The Wasichus have put us in these square boxes. Our power is
gone and we are dying, for the power is not in us any more.You
can look at our boys and see how it is with us. When we were living
by the power of the circle in the way we should, boys were men at
twelve or thirteen. But now it takes them very much longer to
mature. Well, it is as it is. We are prisoners of war while we
are waiting here. But there is another world.
