From the statement about Indigenous Peoples Community Day by the International Indigenous Youth Council (IIYC):
Chief Arvol Looking Horse of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota Nations recently stated:
“Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the future of humankind. Did you think the Creator would create unnecessary people in a time of such terrible danger? Know that you yourself are essential to this world. Understand both the blessing and the burden of that. You yourself are desperately needed to save the soul of this world. Did you think you were put here for something less? In a Sacred Hoop of Life, there is no beginning and no ending.”
