A year ago today, I arrived on the rez for my month of study at Sinte Gleska University.
I miss being there. I miss being a student. I miss hearing people speak Lakota every day. I miss my friends and teachers. I miss the bluffs and buttes. I miss the horizon.
I miss hearing the Lakota birthday song on the radio every morning. I miss the way people joke and laugh with each other there.
Tunkasila, hoyewaye! Unsimalaye!
