At least beautiful in the eyes of the world..that outer, fading "beauty". Nah, that's not my worry, yo. Lord, rid me of myself and let imperishable beauty shine from within! So that anyone who gazes upon me feels and sees the Light of Jesus!
Sitting Bull, refused to order his people to stop Ghost Dancing, and in consequence was arrested and killed, an act that led two weeks later to the infamous massacre at Wounded Knee, (12/29/1890) where 153 Sioux Indians, mostly women and children, were needlessly slaughtered by the US Army. But the Indian spirit was not slaughtered with them. The Ghost Dance continues to this day, and to some large extent the hopes of many Native Americans remain pinned to the prophecy that spawned it.
