Sweatlodge with Melvin Chiloquim, Suoix-Lakota

After two years at RMCC time had come for us rainbow gypsies to take farewell and leave. With seven busses and 28 enthusiastic travelers on board we rolled out through the grove with a new name for the group. Melvin Chiloquim, from the Lakota tribe had given a protective name for our journey back to Mexico. Kilokaga Nx Nilaxi, meaning the small but powerful group. Melvin had for two years come to teach us the sweat lodge ritual. Now he saw us depart.
