    Although we have worked with most of our schools to promote Lakota language and culture, we need a real educational & ceremonial center where we can share with classes the time needed to learn the culture, timeless Lakota virtues, values, arts, and skills to be a better human being, to heal the past, and make a better future for the generations to come.  Help make our vision become a reality.

Canteyuke – “To have a heart”

Generosity (Canteyuke) – “To have a heart” is the literal translation of this Lakota word which is a timeless virtue residing in the heart. True generosity has always been encouraged and exemplified in Lakota society while accumulating material possessions was greatly discouraged. As our Earth Mother gives everything, we should in turn do the same. True generosity embodies love and the understanding of impermanence.
