Mitakuye Oyasin is a Lakota phrase used in refrains and prayers, meaning "we are all related"...
Pronounced "Metockwe ozsin"
For years, I practiced Lakota Sioux traditions with an organization in New Jersey. The group now resides in upstate New York. I am grateful for the time spent honoring the Lakota.
My husband had been gifted several Lakota artifacts, from his grandmother. The pieces were given to Mike's grandfather, William, by a Lakota, after William saved his life in the 1800's.
KC Willis is a fabric artist, that now dedicates her time to the Lakota living on the
Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

In a $14 priority mail flat rate box, you can send a bit of "warmth and caring" to the Lakota people. I had read that a grandmother of 11, needed socks for her grandchildren. We had fun today gathering socks and toiletries to send to Judy Left Hand. At the store, the check-out lady was watching Mike toss items into the cart, and she said we appeared to be having fun gathering stocking stuffers.
Yes, we are all related.
A ho mitakuye oyasin.
