  1. I had these visions 2 months before Sundance in Washington last year. They lasted a week and were so vivid that I wrote them down. What I heard was in a language that had no translation yet I understood. I could send you the text as I heard it and as I wrote it. Any help in understanding these dreams and why I was told these thing would help. Aho Mitakwe Oyasin. Many Blessing
