Episode 4: Stories of Cowboys and Indians


Arizona & Montana


Stories are important, because they infuse humanity in history, and help us prepare for battle, for standing up, albeit rarely, for the lesser-known principles; allowing us the courage to tell our children to believe. Stories are important, because they live within us, and grow with us, much like our souls are drenched and enriched with the first memory of a lingering rain, or the shapeless crystal of a snowflake melting at the tip of our tongues.

Stories matter because they last through the ages. Stories of gods become religion, stories of brave-hearts create heroes, stories of imagination help in understanding the universe and save humanity, stories of perseverance and self-love create astounding leaders; and most importantly, stories of a better kind help humans dream better.

Over three days at The Battle of the Little Bighorn reenactment (near the Little Bighorn River in Montana Territory), the Lakota Sioux and Cheyenne warriors recounted the stories of what became known as Custer’s Last Stand. Their stories are important, because so often, when we are powerless against the uncertain, unpredictable, caustic forces of this tumultuous world, there is power in the way stories are told.

Check the stories I told in my book Cultures in Transition.
