Words That Speak

The American Indian is of the soil, whether it be the region of forests, plains, pueblos, or mesas. He fits into the landscape, for the hand that fashioned the continent also fashioned the man for his surroundings. He once grew as naturally as the wild sunflowers; he belongs just as the buffalo belonged….

Out of the Indian approach to life there came a great freedom, an intense and absorbing respect for life, enriching faith in a Supreme Power, and principles of truth, honesty, generosity, equity, and brotherhood as a guide to mundane relations.

You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round….. The Sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours….

Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.

Wakan Tanka Vision

          Sioux Religion

The Sioux regards the universe as ultimately incomprehensible, life, growth and death a mysterious and suggestive of powers difficult to understand. Since time itself is regarded as non-casual and does not embody nations of change and progress.

Nothing in the universe can be considered inevitable. This incomprehensibility and unpredictability of the universe where anything difficult to understand is called Wakan. Which connotes the animating force of the universe. The total of which is Wakan Tanka. Wakan Tanka is the total sum of personified powers that brought all things into being. Sometimes it is embodied by the Six Grandfathers.

Human kind itself formed and emerged from the womb of Mother Earth as did the buffalo. Every thing has its own spirit but all shall share the same spiritual essence that is Wakan Tanka.

So it is the most important aspect of personality that is shared by everything in the universe. Other beings often shared their knowledge with humans or provided aid in time of crisis and so came to be thought of as people. The observance of the human like characteristics of these people led to the development of kinship with them. At birth one receives from Takuskanskan a guardian spirit and the life breath or ghost which comes from the stars. At death these return to the spirit world.
