Greetings my name is Silas BigLefthand amd there is my family my wife of 39 years together we have four children 3 boys and 1 girl all grown today. Our children gave us 4 grandsons and 1 granddaughter. My parents have gone on in to the spirit world, my parents were the ones that showed me the way bringing me in the tipi. My parents and other relatives sitting in a circle around the sacred fire and alter where lots of singing and for the most important the prayer of the ceremony. By witnessing this I was inspired by this wonderful way of life. I grew in a small village on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation, Birney Montana. It was here where I was brought into these ceremonies by my parents along with other elders around the sacred fire place where I heard very beautiful music and prayers. During this time only my Native sacred language (Cheyenne) was spoken, not a word of English was heard. I truly honor my parents and relations for this wonderful way of life.
Ha ho
