It is impossible to know how many lives Nellie Two Bulls has influenced. She was referred to as "Grandma Nellie" by thousands. She sang in Kevin Costner's "Dances With Wolves" movie and at a service on the east coast to celebrate Robert F. Kennedy's life. She was a sacred repository for the songs and stories of the Lakota People. Her voice evoked the old days but resonated with all who listened to her in these changing times. She was the 2006 Spirit Award winner.
