No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This small book/CD contains simple and common phrases in Lakota. These terms are used daily and are basic in the interactive involvement in speech. You will also find a Pipe Filling Song, a Four Direction Song, a Grandfather Song, and a Thanksgiving Song. Songs that are very relevant and purpose of the Inipi (Purification Rite), also an example of a prayer. This is the Lakota that I grew up speaking. Lakota medicine man Pete Catches Sr. states in the book, 'Sacred Fireplace,' "If you are going to participate in Lakota ceremonies, you should learn the language." With the help of this booklet & CD you have journeyed into a beautiful realm that is unique in the Western Hemisphere. My prayers are with you. Zintkala Oyate
