"I was really physically, emotionally drained. I was giving up hope. But when the medicine people came along they had me, they had prayers for me; they had medicine singing; medicine dancing for me. They had prayers and smudging and they had even some sun dancers had prayers for me. My people from Warm Springs, my people from Yakima come and do the Shakers, the long house. The full Gospel and some of the Catholics came in and do all kinds of prayers for me and it made me realize that there is a creator out there."
