Mato’s comments about the ghost dance raise the question about how ambivalent AM is about that chapter in history. It is nontrivial to set an opinion when you are both the victim and the victor of such a cataclysm. She grew up with her mother as a SINless Anglo, but her father was a trader that dealt with these Anglos. Yet, she practiced traditionalist shamanism – the same kind of magic that triggered the dance, or at least one aspect of that connection.
“Bear was intentionally silent about the dance. Either he was not proud of that part in history or he did not want to share the knowledge with me being half Anglo. So I have no idea if GGD is to blame for the weather but Iktomi teaches us to be flexible and to adapt to change. “
