Quotes

Red Lance: You... read all these books?

Voices That Carry: There's much to learn from them.

Red Lance: What good is this knowledge?

Voices That Carry: You have many questions Red Lance, but you have no desire to hear the answers.

Red Lance: And you do not wish to learn.

Voices That Carry: I've told you. The Ghost Dance is only superstition. Spirits can't help our people. Only we can do that for ourselves.

Red Lance: You do not have ears. You will not listen.
