Wakan Tanka

Wakan Tanka

In the power that resides in everything, the natural and supernatural elements coexist in a circle. The earth, the stars, the sun, the moon, the seasons, the life of man, the bird's nest form a great circle. So it is for every thing where energy moves because the boundary between the visible world and the world of spirits does not exist.
