Having a Vision

“When a dancer is to receive a vision, he takes a fall. He lies there, unconscious. When that happens, we hurriedly go and cover him up with cattails and sweet sage. Then we pray for him. He has gone into a vision, so nobody bothers him. The reward is medicine coming from the Sun Dance, given to him by the buffalo. The buffalo will give the dancer something…probably tell him what to do; what kind of feathers, colors, or medicine to make. Different persons will receive different things.”

- Thomas Yellowtail
