story to tell. The quilt pictured was made on the Rosebud Indian
Reservation in South Dakota. It was won in a basketball tournament
by Terry Middletent, from the Lower Brule Reservation. When Pastor
Barbara Stroud-Borth left her seminary internship on the Lower Brule
Lakota Reservation, Terry and his wife, Mary Jane, gave it to her to
honor and thank her for the year she lived and worked with the
people of Lower Brule.
