We did not think of the great open plains, \u0003the beautiful rolling hills, and the winding streams \u0003with tangled growth, as 'wild'. Only to the \u0003white man was nature a 'wilderness' and only to him \u0003was the land 'infested' with 'wild' animals and \u0003'savage' people. To us it was tame. Earth was \u0003bountiful and we were surrounded with blessings \u0003of the Great Mystery. —Luther Standing Bear (Dec 1868 - Feb 20, 1939), \u0003Oglala Lakota.
