~Robert Higheagle (early 20th century), Teton Sioux




"It is strictly believed and understood by the Sioux that a child is the greatest gift from Wakan Tanka, in response to many devout prayers, sacrifices, and promises. Therefore the child is considered “sent by Wakan Tanka," through some element-namely the element of human nature."

~Robert Higheagle (early 20th century), Teton Sioux
