Lakota pipe ceremony, 1907, Edward S. Curtis "Great Mystery, teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my Sacred Space and love beyond my fear, and thus Walk Balance with the passing of each glorious Sun ." -- Lakota prayer
White Buffalo Calf Woman appeared from the north as a beautiful young woman dressed in a brilliant white dress to give the tribe the sacred pipe & rituals which form the basis of their religion. She also took the form of a sacred white buffalo calf. When she left the tribe, she told them that she will come back in the future.
