Forty years later, just last week in fact, at a Prayer Circle for Idle No More in Seattle I saw another Native sister staggering drunk, alone. She was angry and started clumsily swinging at anyone trying to help her. She settled onto a bench and cried during the prayers. I cried with her. I prayed with her. Awhile later, paramedics were called as it was announced someone had fallen over by the pier. It was her. She was lucky that hundreds were around to give her aide. I know that in too many cases where our sisters are alone and in this condition the unimaginable happens. Now I have the power to help.
