In Rio de Janeiro the statue of “Christ the Redeemer” looks down on his people with his arms held wide, the Mormon Church in which their Temples stand tall with angel Moroni blowing his trumpet into the world to hear the calling, in India the “Great Statue of Buddha,” sits tall speaking to all who seek him. Now, Lakota Dream Museum & Monument will stand tall, and stand beautiful, giving all eyes within sight a chance to gaze in awe at the world's most storied Native tribes. It's time to bring our people home. -Adonis Saltes, President & Founder Of Lakota Dream Museum & Monument.
