'What is in the stars is on earth and what is on earth is in the stars.' This idea unites the ceremonial map in the circle of stars, not only with sites in the Black Hills, but with a round of ceremonial actions at sacred sites there, ending with a Sun Dance at the Bear's Lodge (Devil's Tower) June 21 (summer solstice). 'As above, so below' that is, what occurs in the stars is mirrored on earth is a very old idea now forgotten by Western culture. It is expressed in Alchemy and the even older idea that humankind and our events are a microcosmic mirror of the macrocosm. The Lakota elders believed this, and some of that knowledge did survive.
Below is a sacred map of the Black Hills within the sacred hoop, the earth-mother ceremonial home that mirrors the circle of stars in the skies. Actions of the people, not just places, are the sky-mirror -- the ceremonial round performed by the people or their representatives. 'As the sun moved counterclockwise through the constellations of the ecliptic, the Lakota moved clockwise through the Black Hills from one ceremonial site to another; each site correlated to a constellation. The ceremonies mirrored the sun's path on the plains. After the Sun Dance and National Councils (held at Bear Butte) the 3-month ritual of incorporating the powers of the Wakan Washte (the ideal Good Life) was completed. The people were on the Red Road. Their will, individually and collectively, was now attuned to Wakan Tanka.'

MAP CORRELATIONS: If you jumped back & forth between Star and Hills maps and were puzzled, you're being too literal, looking for a mirror that's like a 1-to-1 matched diagram. Both the stars in the circle and the Black Hills contain time in their mirrors of each other, but not in the same way. People and their ceremonies are a part of the time-of-the-hills. The relative motions of the sun (and moon and certain planets) are time-in-the-stars.
When the sun is 'in' certain constellations, it is time for certain ceremonies to begin. Old Baldy, a bare place in the Hills marks the center of the ceremonial geography -- but there is no star or constellation to mark the starry circle's center in the sky, the correspondence is 2 different kinds of empty places. (Although in the 11th century, when the light from the Crab Nebula Supernova reached earth so the star was even visible in daytime, it occupied this empty center.)
There's a red clay valley round the Black Hills (not so neat a circle as the elders drew above) but the Red Race Track in the star map is only indicated by certain bright stars, and is imagined. Constellations for any culture (all have them) aren't outlined by stars like so many connect-the-dots pix, they are imaginative projections on scatters of bright lights. The Lakota sky/earth mirroring is spiritual, metaphorical, symbolic, artistic -- not a literal mapping of 2 diagrams onto each other.
HISTORICAL NOTE: Knowledge that is in part scientific was the most vunerable to loss during the long, genocidal conquest. It is usually subject to all the hostility directed against what the invarders consider a false religion they attempt to eradicate, because they won't recognize it as science. Too, the invaders were ignorant men, and their interpreters, usually sell-out half-breeds, even more so. They lacked the knowledge from their own civilization to understand and appreciate that of the Native peoples.
Iindigenous peoples generally integrated their knowledge differently than WestCiv came to, so it was all considered 'just some native superstitions' and actively attacked by the Christians. Naming a sacred spot 'Devil's Tower' is all too common across the continent. In fact if you see such religiously pejorative names attached to any geological features, you can be pretty sure the site was sacred once to some indigeneous peoples.
As can be seen from the Lakota book's re-vivification of Lakota star knowledge (which took many years of work by native scholars), attacks on Native religion were really attacks on entire lifeways, since religion wasn't something separate, all forms of knowledge were at risk, and all methods of preservation had to be clandestine. It didn't change when non-missionary anthros started showing up. In the 19th century (and well into the second half of the 20th), how many of them knew any science, anyway? If they were trusted to be told anything, how many of them could understand it?
Much astronomical knowledge would never have been commonplaces, known to all; most of it would be known only by tribal s'experts' who had made long studies of the phenomena. Imagine some Blue Blob Thing anthros from the far stars dropping by.
They collect some 'data' from such earth-primitive savants as Einstein and Mandelbrot. Their interpeter is a 20-year-old couch potato who is a big Star Trek fan. What they're going to bring back to the Blue Blob Thing University is going to be mighty strange. In fact, Einstein's dead, so they get all the lowdown on relativity, certain evil gods called 'nukes' and such from their braindamage case TV fan. I think the situation for Native knowledge is quite comparable to what they're teaching and writing, now, at the Blue Blob campus of U Sirius.

Pickup trucks and eagles, yellow school buses and painted horses, Mother Earth and Sister Meadowlark all join together to greet the dawn. They marvel at the colors and sounds, smells and memories that come with the opening of the day. Animals and humans alike turn their faces upwards and gaze as the sun makes its daily journey from horizon to horizon. Dawn is a time to celebrate with a smiling heart, to start a new day in the right way, excited for what might come. Birds sing and dance, children rush to learn, dewdrops glisten from leaves, and gradually the sun warms us. Each time the sun starts a new circle, we can start again as well. All these things are part of the Lakota way, a means of living in balance. S. D. Nelson offers young readers a joyous way of appreciating their culture and surroundings. He draws inspiration from traditional stories to create Greet the Dawn. His artwork fuses elements of modern with traditional. Above all, he urges each of us to seize the opportunity that comes with the dawn of each new day.

'An inside view of the Lakota world-of the meaning of Lakota song and dance, of their history, of what it is to be Lakota in America today. . . . A lasting personal tribute to the Lakota way of living.'-Whole Earth Review. 'A unique, in-depth presentation on Lakota music and the profession of singer, a useful contemporary Oglala representation of the core of their culture, and a version of the involvement of the American Indian Movement on Pine Ridge Reservation, told by a man who was affiliated but not a principal leader. . . . This is a subjective statement, well and persuasively written.'-Choice. Severt Young Bear stood in the light-in the center ring at powwows and other gatherings of Lakota people. As founder and, for many years, lead singer of the Porcupine Singers, a traditional singing and drumming group, he also stood, figuratively, in the light of understanding the cherished Lakota heritage. Young Bear's own life in Brotherhood Community, Porcupine District of the Pine Ridge Sioux Reservation, is the linchpin of this narrative, which ranges across the landscape of Dakota culture, from the significance of names to the search for modern Lakota identity, from Lakota oral traditions to powwows and giveaways, from child-rearing practices to humor and leadership. 'Music is at the center of Lakota life, ' says Young Bear; he describes in rich detail the origins and varieties of Lakota song and dance. Severt Young Bear performed with the Porcupine Singers throughout North America, taught at Oglala Lakota College, and served on the Oglala Sioux tribal council. He was music and dance consultant for the films Dances with Wolves and Thunder Heart. This book is the fruit of his longfriendship and collaboration with R. D. Theisz, a fellow Porcupine Singer and professor of communications and education at Black Hills State University.

Drawing on vivid oral histories, Joseph M. Marshall’s intimate biography introduces a never-before-seen portrait of Crazy Horse and his Lakota community Most of the world remembers Crazy Horse as a peerless warrior who brought the U.S. Army to its knees at the Battle of Little Bighorn. But to his fellow Lakota Indians, he was a dutiful son and humble fighting man who—with valor, spirit, respect, and unparalleled leadership—fought for his people’s land, livelihood, and honor. In this fascinating biography, Joseph M. Marshall, himself a Lakota Indian, creates a vibrant portrait of the man, his times, and his legacy. Thanks to firsthand research and his culture’s rich oral tradition (rarely shared outside the Native American community), Marshall reveals many aspects of Crazy Horse’s life, including details of the powerful vision that convinced him of his duty to help preserve the Lakota homeland—a vision that changed the course of Crazy Horse’s life and spurred him confidently into battle time and time again. The Journey of Crazy Horse is the true story of how one man’s fight for his people’s survival roused his true genius as a strategist, commander, and trusted leader. And it is an unforgettable portrayal of a revered human being and a profound celebration of a culture, a community, and an enduring way of life. 'Those wishing to understand Crazy Horse as the Lakota know him won't find a better accout than Marshall's.' -San Francisco Chronicle

For Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota people, historical trauma, chronically underfunded federal programs, and broken promises on the part of the US government have resulted in gaping health, educational, and economic disparities compared to the general population. Crazy Horse Weeps, offers a thorough historical overview of how South Dakota reservations have wound up in these tragic circumstances, showing how discrimination, a disorganized tribal government, and a devastating dissolution of Lakota culture by the US government have transformed the landscape of Native life. Yet these extraordinary challenges, Marshall argues, can be overcome. Focusing on issues of identity and authenticity, he uses his extensive experience in traditional Lakota wisdom to propose a return to traditional tribal values and to outline a plan for a hopeful future.

The Lakota Way Pdf
'Following the sudden death of his 27 year old daughter Felicity, in Way of Wakan, David Mathieu shares a moving personal understanding of Lakota (Sioux) beliefs surrounding death. Learned decades earlier from two Lakota medicine men on the Cheyenne River reservation in South Dakota, the author reflects on what he experienced long ago and how the death of Felicity has led to a deeper understanding of Lakota spirituality. Formerly a professor of American Indian Studies and teacher of Lakota language, David's newfound grasp of the Lakota notion of Wakan (mystery) reveals much that is universal about death and grief. Beginning as a funeral eulogy, Way of Wakan becomes an elegy, not only about the death of a beloved young daughter, but on the profound comfort that can be found accepting the 'not knowing' as an understanding of death and afterlife.'--Cover, p. .
