World Class Dancers
I am always dropping names like the Her Many Horses and am proud to call them blood relatives.
Lakota like many people are a part of their mother's family. I grew up without knowing my relatives but then when I turned thirty I began to come to know them. Grandma Emily Her Many Horses called my one day and told me she was proud of me. She just lived a couple of blocks away. I met my uncle Mike and John and then I met Grace Her Many Horses who is the chief of police on the Rosebud Reservation.
I was eating in a restaurant in Chadron, Nebraska one day and I noticed a high school choir eating and they were from Todd County High School. I knew I had relatives there and asked if any of them knew the Her Many Horses and one young lady raised her hand and said she was a Her Many Horses it turned out she was Emmy Her Many Horse and I ended up getting so excited I bought their choir lunch. Ah, to find your relatives! Stay close to your family because you don't choose relatives when they are blood.
