I sing a song that took Grandfather over 40 years to teach me. But it is now my song. It belongs to me. It is my holy song, my medicine-song, and great is its power. When I sing it I go through the clouds and I become spirit and I talk with Grandfather and he with me. I sing a song, my song.
Everyone has a song from Creator. Ask him for your song. Seek him out with a clean heart. He will give you YOUR song. Only your song. Sing your song to him. Every…

Kicking Bear was an Og lala by birth. Through marriage he joined the Minneconjou and became a band chief. Both the Oglala and the Minneconjou belong to the Lakota Nation.

Mrs. Fanny Kelly was taken captive in July 1864 by a war party of Hunkpapa Sioux in Wyoming. During most of the five months she was held prisoner, Mrs. Kelly stayed in the lodgings of Sitting Bull, the famous leader "as a guest," of his family, "and I was treated as a guest," she wrote.
"He was uniformly gentle, and kind to his wife and children and courteous and considerate in his [interactions] with others. During…Continue
Tashunkewitko (Crazy Horse), recorded by Major V.T. McGillicuddy
We did not ask you white men to come here. The Great Spirit gave us this country as a home. You had yours. We did not interfere with you. The Great Spirit gave us plenty of land to live on and buffalo, deer, antelope and other game; you are taking my land from me; you are killing off our game, so it is hard for us to live. Now you tell us to work [as farmers] for a living, but the Great Spirit did not make us to work,…Continue

Tatanka Yotanka, The Sitting Bull, told to a New York Herald correspondent, November 16, 1877
I was lying in my lodge. Some young men ran in to me and said, "The Long Hair is in the camp. Get up. They are firing in the camp." I jumped up and stepped out of my lodge (shown on the right side of the map). The old men, women and children were hurried away. Long Hair retreated and my men fought him in the brush, and he fell back to the northern bluffs. Then he took the road to see if he…Continue

Kate Bighead, told to Dr. Thomas Marquis in 1922
Little Big Horn was not the first meeting between the Cheyennes and Long Hair. Early in the winter of 1868 Long Hair and the Seventh Cavalry attacked our camp on the Washita River killing Chief Black Kettle and his band, burning their tipis and destroying all their food and belongings. In the spring Long Hair promised peace and moved the Cheyenne to a reservation. When gold was discovered white people came and the Indians were moved…Continue

Tashna Mani, or Moving Robe, told to Frank Zahn in 1931
Several of us young Indian women were digging wild turnips when I saw a cloud of dust rise beyond a ridge of bluffs in the east. We looked towards camp and saw a warrior ride swiftly, shouting that the solders were only a few miles away, and that the women and children and old men should run for the hills in the opposite direction. I dropped the pointed ash stick which I had used in digging turnips and ran toward my tipi. I saw…Continue

I was on east of Gallup, New Mexico. I called this area, The Land of Illusions because from the Interstate one only sees barren desert, but on the roads less traveled it was an oasis. The area originally belonged to the De-Na-Zin people which includes Apaches, Navajos and Zunis. If you listen to the quiet, you can hear the Earthly Mother speaking in their Native tongue. Yes, I was made aware of the relationship between the Earthly Mother and the Native, Tribal Peoples.
