“There’s a Lakota concept of being a good relative, that we’re supposed to walk in this world, regardless of if you’re related to someone or not — it’s being that good relative. How do you be a good person taking care of others — say you’re hosting somebody. How do you make sure they’re comfortable? How do you make sure their needs are taken care of? You’re showing support to somebody else, and you’re doing it in the best way possible. That’s what it means to be a good relative.”
