I attended your summer camp 1991 and recorded some of your lessons. you had a profound effect on me and i would like to say many thanks. warm thoughts go to your family. thanks for teaching us how to be a real human.

I remember Albert touring the Art Department at UW-Eau Claire and simply absorbing the spirit of the place. His ability to be present in the moment of any conversation, event, or presentation blessed us all -- I am thankful for time with him.

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.

In memory of a great man..may your light ever shine...

He was truly a great man and saved America's voice for the land, the sky , the sun.His spirit is always with Us Soar great Eagle .
