The High Hill of Age....& Peace

The High Hill of Old Age

Black Elk: (1863–1950); medicine man, Oglala Lakota

"I did not know then how much was ended. 
When I look back now from this high hill of my old age,
 I can still see the butchered women and children lying heaped and scattered all along the crooked gulch as plain as when I saw them with eyes young. 
And I can see that something else died there in the bloody mud, and was buried in the blizzard. 
A people's dream died there.
 It was a beautiful dream ... the nation's hope is broken and scattered. 
There is no center any longer, and the sacred tree is dead."
