"Wolakota to all our relatives, and to us two-legged becoming human beings, let us have a covenant of peace and friendship without greed for power or using the sacred manner of presencing wolakota as religion. Albert's bottom line, we are human and wonderful. Albert blessed my path in November 2007 declaring the wonder of Maka Si Tomni, trusting the surrounding universe in not knowing, a new dimension in living in realization. Heart felt prayers over the past year spirit keeping his presence is the beginning of a future legacy to a wonderful Lakota elder. The Lakota Nation is the best kept secret."

I met Albert White Hat at a retreat in Waco TX that was cut short by the events of 9/11. He was warm and kind to this curious white woman and shared his culture generously, with a deeply centered wisdom and a hilarious sense of humor. I will never hear a better bear joke! My prayer is that his work will be taken up by a heart as deep and capable. My heart goes to all who will miss him in this world.

I visited Lakota Studies at Sinte Gleska University several years ago and met Mr. White Hat. He has done magnificent work to preserve the Lakota language. He will be missed.

Dear Family. I am so very sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure to meet Albert on the Rosebud when he was a speaker for the Tree of Life Ministry. He was truly an inspiration.

It was my pleasure to experience a journey across the reservation with Mr. White Hat as our guide, and to meet him again years later while on another tour. May his knowledge and teachings be carried on! What an impressive man he was, I'm so pleased that I met him.

I only met Mr. White Hat once, a few years ago, at the University. This gentle man left a life-long impression on me. I'm sure he is misses by so many who knew him well and by others, like me, who barely knew him. I only wish I could have spent more time learning from him.

The native words have nuances of meaning. Please learn this to keep those spirits active in your lives. You are showing appreciation for your parents and ancestors, their traditions, and their sacrifices for you.

We are earth people on a spiritual journey to the stars. Our quest, our earth walk, is to look within, to know who we are, to see that we are connected to all things, and that there is no separation, only in the mind.

To the young Lakota, please memorialize Mr. White Hat by learning your native language. We non-Native Americans don't want this part of your culture to die. I honor this great man.

MY SORROW AT THE PASSING OF MR. WHITE HAT IS INDESCRIBABLE. I AM NOT NATIVE AMERICAN; HOWEVER, I TRAINED ON THE ROSEBUD RESERVATION FOR PART OF MY MEDICAL TRAINING, AND CAME TO LOVE AND RESPECT THEIR CULTURE. I PRAY SOME YOUNGER LAKOTANS COME ALONG TO KEEP HIS LEGACY ALIVE!

I had the most profound opportunity to attend a Sundance Ceremony at the Rosebud Reservation in 1991. I will remember it til the day I too pass from this earth. God bless Mr. White Hats family and the Lacota Nation and its quest to continue his work. May he rest in peace with his forefathers.
