Tuesday. Earl Defender, Royce Noisy Hawk, and Farrel Eagle Horse insisted on each having their pictute taken with me. They were a bit toasted, I had seen them earlier in Eagle Butte behind some trees, drinking beer. I also saw them hide the beer when the Tribal Police vehicle approached. They said they were very proud of me for what I do. As I was leaving, Royce Noisy Hawk said, “anyone bothers you, come tell us, we will kick their ass.” Bless their beaitiful Lakota hearts. LOVE LIFE.
