Dances with Wolves is a story of love, loyalty and self-realization against the backdrop of the Great Plains Native American culture during the American Civil War. This time of major strife inspired people to work together and appreciate the beauty of natural wonders. Close your eyes and envision what you see when you let go. Be free in your designs!
