A description of the experience
Indian Stories – Cicero Newell
THE Holy Man, Sleep-in-the-Clouds, said that he could see many things that other people could not behold because the Great Spirit had given him that power. He said that, the Great Spirit showed him pictures that other men did not see. Sometimes he went away and stayed in the clouds many days. Some of his people said that he was in a trance at such a time, others declared that he was dead; but he always came back. He made pictures of the things that he saw in the clouds. He told me about a battle that the Great Spirit had showed him which took place one day between the tree men and the cave men.
