Crazy Bull Chief Listening to a chief of a nation was a new experience for me Crazy Bull a chief of about 10000 Lakotas taught a lot about his culture and ways of knowing through his experience as an American Native during the times of imperialism from the EuroAmericans His experience throughout his life and culture was very different from my own and it was very interesting to listen to his story and his way of life He brought a lot of new knowledge to the audience and expressed a lot of his own thoughts and beliefs Crazy Bull started his thoughts by explaining his culture He believes that instead of walking into two worlds when we are born that we walk into one world He believes that its not how you are and act but how we get along that makes a difference He was grown up knowing that he was thought as the other His people were controlled by the Whiteman and were treated differently from them in his time Natives were imprisoned because of sacred ceremonies within their culture such as their smokehouses and Raindances Crazy Bull believes that we are all taught to be discriminative however we all bleed red He said that the way of life is not black or white or brown We are all the same and we are all related The chief also spoke about Sundances that they hold which is one of their sacred ceremonies It is to give back to the earth Crazy Bull said that we as humans are always taking and always wanting and their culture believes that we have to learn to give back because we come into this earth with nothing However his cultural belief is that we will leave with something and thats our spirits They also believe in reincarnation and that everybody comes back but not as a human maybe as a raindrop or a butterfly instead for example
