7 Values of Lakota Life

Our programs, activities and all interactions with our youth are guided by

the Seven Values of Lakota Life given to the people by Pte San Win White Buffalo Calf Woman:

Wocʼekiya - Praying: find spirituality by communicating with your higher power, this is communication between you and Tunkasila without going through another person or spirit.

Wa oʼhola - Respect: for self, higher power, family, community, all life.

 

Waunsila - First law of the Pipe. Caring and Compassion: loving, caring and or concern for one another in a good way, especially for the family, the old ones, the young ones, the orphans, the ones in mourning, the sick ones, and the ones working for the people.

 

Wowijake - Honestly and Truth: with yourself, higher power, and others with sincerity.

 

Wawokiye - Helping: helping without expecting anything in return, giving from the heart.

 

Wahwayela - Humility: we have a spirit; we are no better or less than others.

 

Waanagoptan - Listen-hear, obey, accept give heed to attention.
