The "Lakota Instructions for Living"


Taught to the Lakota Sioux

by White Buffalo Calf Woman


Friend do it this way - that is,

whatever you do in life,

do the very best you can

with both your heart and mind.


And if you do it that way,

the Power Of The Universe

will come to your assistance,

 If your heart and mind are in Unity.


When one sits in the

Hoop Of The People,

one must be responsible because

All of Creation is related.

And the hurt of one

is the hurt of all.

And the honor of one

is the honor of all.

And whatever we do effects

everything in the universe.


If you do it that way - that is,

If you truly join your heart and mind

as One - whatever you ask for,

that's the Way It's Going To Be.
