      Swordfish,
      Lakota is the name for the Nation in the Lakota language. Sioux is what other people have called the Lakota Nation. Either one works. I read Dee Brown's book when it came out in 1971. It is as close to the truth as you can get concerning the Indian Wars. The Crow Nation, or Apsaalooke in their language (which actually means 'people of the long beaked bird', which implied a Raven, but it was mis-interpreted as Crow and it stuck ever since), have been rivals with the Lakota for as long as anyone can remember.

      Fleur,
      I'm glad you like my taste in art. I'm guessing that you already have clicked on the link titled "Favorite Artwork", to see the other postings as well. I learned that you can even click on each thumbnail and get a larger version.

      My shoulder tattoo took about 3 hours to complete.

      Hello Historian,
      The Lakota people are Sioux, yes? Interested to know if you have read "Bury my heart at wounded knee" by Dee Brown. I found it a particularly engaging read. I have also have a copy of "The North American Indian" by Edward S Curtis and feel particulalry drawn to the pictures of the Apsaroke (I have a family of crows in the trees next to my house and they seem to be constantly making their presence known to me). Were the Apsaroke's friends or foe of the Lakota people?
      Cheers

      Jokes and humor are a very large part of NDN culture. I'm not familiar with Liverpool jokes, but I do have some Irish jokes I can post. I'm a wee bit Irish myself, don't yah know. (Murphy's are in the family from way back.)

      Hey, I'm struggling to keep up with the jokes. Where do you get them. Do you know the 'scouse' Liverpool jokes?

      Great to find someone who enjoys a bit of a laugh and joke. Tries to lighten everyones days instead of the gloom of some. Keep it up mate.

      Thank you, Historian, for your explanation of the Sundance ceremony. I knew a little i.e. that sundancers participate for the sacrifice of others especially family etc. I was aware that in the Lakota tradition niya, nagi, nagila and sicun are kind of representing, what we call soul - it's the best way I can describe it. But I wasn't aware about the details of the ceremony as per your description. This is highly interesting to me. Historian. Thank you
