1997 Santa fe, MN A enormous "metropolis" looking ship landing and our memories wiped away, lost time

I am not exactly sure this is the right date or month but I am certain it was spring of 1997.

I was outside my college dormitory and we were having a school event. I am Native American and we were having a drum and dance social event. I was singing with the other singers when one of the drummers pointed to the northwest and said “Oh my god! Look at that!” I turned and looked it was night time out when I turned and looked I thought we would be crushed in a few seconds by the enormous ship we saw. It seemed to be landing. It was so enormous I can only say that it looked like a large metropolis landing. It made no sound but had a strange energy that you could “sense or feel”. It had millions of little lights all over it and in many colors. It was like a city because it was not a uniform shape. It had many appendages and parts to it. It was so big it seemed to nearly block out that part of the sky. I was standing there and just complete shock hit me. That is all I remember. When we “came to” or became conscious again I felt dazed and like the memory of it was fading so quickly that I had to meditate quickly to hold it in my mind. Everyone else seemed to just go back to what they were doing and when I tried to get them to talk about it or even come with me to go search for it, they seemed like zombies. At the time I was pregnant, I don’t know if that was a factor in how I might have been treated if we were abducted or if our minds were manipulated at all. I was a peer counselor at the time at the schools student drop in center “The Healing Circle”. I ran A.A. meetings and held traditional “Talking Circles” for the Native students who needed support emotionally and we had our own licensed Psychologist on staff as well. He was standing right next to me and witnessed this too. I believe we lost some time too. He was the only one who wanted to go running after this thing. I eventually convinced some friends who were not there to witness it to take me to look for it. We rode around in the car for a bout two hours. We couldn’t find anything and it should have been right on top of us if! it was going to really land anyway. While we were driving around we did see military jets circling the area for quite awhile. I believe people called the radio stations and 911 too. I can’t confirm that though.

The strangest thing was that I did forget the incident for about 5 years I could not remember it. One day I was working with some youth, I am now a social worker, we were driving toward Minneapolis’s downtown and we could see the skyline. We were talking about strange things like Bigfoot and UFO’s when suddenly the memory came flooding back instantly. I was overwhelmed and that same shocked feeling came over me. I still don’t remember what happened though between the times I saw it landing and then the next second “poof!” it was just gone, completely vanished.

I have never reported this before. I found this website and thought it was time to tell the story. I have looked online for a picture of a UFO that would be similar to what I saw but I haven’t. I am Native American and my tribe believes in Aliens completely. I do too, especially now.
