Beliefs and Traditions

Traditionally, Lakota history was passed from generation to generation through the beautiful art of storytelling.

Elders shared tales with young ones to preserve the culture and ensure the continuation of a people.

Today, we share a small selection of stories with you - our family and friends - in hopes of spreading understanding and education about a culture in need of our support.
