The Lakota believe that inside the grandmother Unchi Maka, we were developing as human beings.  We represent Two legged~Hu Nupa,  Wicho Ye Changhe'~ generations, Wi Chajghe'~ name, Wichoiye'~ language ~ , and the seven ceremonies that are reflected in the Lakota Creaton stories, and also our our way of life.  Our language is learned from these stories also, and are instrumental in the preservation of our culture.  Oyate Wichoiye' , not only means, the language,  it means "the way". Help us preserve this culture for future generations to come.

Ehu' hunke  ~ creation stories are the telling of a story, and are passed from one person to another, as well as from generation to generation. Without the telling of these stories in our native language, much of their significance is lost. Without living our traditional ways, many of the lessons taught in the stories cannot be understood. This is why it is vital to preserve the Lakota language and traditional cultural ways and values. Lakota believe that through prayer , we can reflect the importance of prayer and  its importance in our lives, and use it to bring us closer to each other, as well as to our creator. We represent the Treaties of the Indigenious, the Oyate, and mankind . We strive to unite in peace and to be an accessible welcoming environment for all.  We also intend through our work and prayer, to strengthen the unilateral beliefs of the Indigenous Nations, as well as the world at large
