Beloved scholar, visionary, humorist, revolutionary, human being Vine Deloria, Jr. passed on from this world yesterday morning, November 13th, 2005.
There was no one else like him. This morning, the magnitude of the loss of this soul from here feels overwhelming. The immensity of his gift--remains. We still need his vision in this world crumpling about us.
Our prayers for a good journey follow you, beloved one.
