Sunkawakan Ta Wounspe: Teachings from the Horse Nation
Sunkawakan Ta Wounspe: Teachings from the Horse Nation is committed to preserving the teachings of our ancestors and nurturing the relationship between the horse nation and the people of Standing Rock. We come from a horse culture and are actively working on bringing horses back into the lives of our people. We often talk of the affects the Indian Wars, forced assimilation, US federal Indian policy and boarding schools have had on our people but what we seemed to have forgotten was how traumatic the loss of the horse was to our ancestors.
