Respect Is Not Always Given.

I find it very heart breaking to see how people disregard traditions and sacred beliefs if it does not include their own. Today we visited the wrongly named Devils Tower, whose name was misinterpreted by an army officer and the name stands to date, due to worries of people losing interest in the place.

This month the natives are performing rituals and ask the climbers to refrain from climbing the tower, however, many did not honor the request and climbed without remorse.

The disrespect is harmful and inconsiderate in my opinion. We heard some of the chants and rituals being performed and were able to feel the magic this wonderful place had to offer.

Go go Gypsy Blue....
