Excerpt from Sun Dance of the Shoshoni, Ute, and Hidatsa

All the participants expect to get good luck and increase their prospects of long life by the ceremony. Some have merely this general object, others go in for the specific purpose of being cured of sickness. Andy himself has never felt better than since he began taking part in the dance. However, he does not start a ceremony from his own initia tive. I generally have a dream that I should give the sun dance. Failing that, I ought to let others start it. I dreamt of it frequently, and when I do so about the proper time then I give it. I tell my friends and they announce it to the whole tribe. Then I set some time before July Fourth, between June twentieth and twenty-seventh.
