Wicoicage aki un kupi. Generation after generation, we are coming home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This past weekend I traveled to my rez for the annual fair + wacipi. I was really looking forward to it, but also anxious. Anxious because it was my first time going back by myself; unsure if I’d be accepted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But during the fair, they held a “welcome home” ceremony for those who have been separated from the community due to adoption or foster care. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I decided to participate at the last minute. I didn’t really know what to expect. I didn’t even know if I belonged there, because my adoption was elective, unlike the forced adoptions that some of my relatives experienced, and my story is one that I’m proud of. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I stepped out of my comfort zone and introduced myself to the woman leading the ceremony. We were gifted with shawls and announced by our birth and adoptive names. We entered the center of the arena where we were honored with a song. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the honoring, we made our way around the arena, and members of the community came out to shake our hands and tell us “welcome home.” Because I decided to overcome my fear and join in on this ceremony, four relatives came to find me afterwards and explained how we are related (!!!). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hearing people whom I’ve never met tell us “welcome home” is a feeling I’ll never forget. It let us know that we matter. And that it doesn’t matter where we grew up or how long we’ve been away. It was one of those moments where I knew I was meant to be here and on this journey, and I’m so grateful to the Sicangu Lakota oyate for welcoming us home. Mitakuye oyasin.
