Seven Sacred Rites of the Lakota
Spotted Eagle View
An excellent CD that explains the seven rites of the Lakota from the perspective of the Spotted Eagle Tiospaye: Inipi, Pipe Fast (Hanbleceya), Sun Dance, Making of Buffalo Woman, Throwing the Sacred Ball, Making of Relatives, Keeping and Releasing the Spirit. Includes oral explanations and some songs. A very good introduction to Lakota religion and the meaning of these major ceremonies. The best recording we know of on this subject.
