This video presents the wisdom of three Lakota Holy Men from the Black Hills of South Dakota. Watch and listen as Joe Flying By sits with us at the foot of Bear's Lodge, like Moses at Mt. Sinai, inspiring us with the creation story meant to create anew in each generation guidance and purpose for those people inclined to do good. He explains that creation is the opportunity for each of us to reveal ourselves fully in a multitude of activities that benefit not only ourselves but also humanity as a whole. In transmitting the sacred rituals to us he shows how to bring the holy spirit within our command. Hear Buffalo Calf Woman, who brought the seven sacred rituals to the Lakota people thousands of years ago, speak through these three elders. Watch and listen as Dave Chief, more warrior than prophet, more teacher than poet, exposes the distortions, the lies, the greed, and self-satisfying convictions of societies that undermine and constrict anything other than themselves. He describes the harmonious co-existence already demonstrated by Native Americans when white men arrived in the "new" world and how it could have, and should have, informed the arriving white men that something fresh and new was possible. Dave Chief reminds us that despite the tension that still exists between those two cultures the possibility of equality is now, more than ever, possible for the greater good. Watch and listen as poet and warrior, master of wit and truth Leroy Curly, having studied the laws, the treaties, and human nature writ large and small (-minded), interacts with us. Wisdomkeepers gives you a taste of this Knowledge transmitted orally as it always has been in Lakota tradition.
