Click To Purchase Tickets

Sacred Lakota Ways: Mitakuye Oyasin will be shared in two special presentations on Saturday, August 31, at the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures. The phrase Mitakuye Oyasin, which translates to “all my relations,” reflects the Lakota belief in the interconnectedness and harmony between all forms of life. From 1-3 pm, Jennifer Black Elk, daughter of world-renowned Lakota Elder and Spiritual Teacher Wallace Black Elk, will outline the depth and meaning of Mitakuye Oyasin as related to the Medicine Wheel, the embodiment of the connection between all life both manifest and unmanifest. Jennifer will be joined by her daughter and granddaughter, who are also wisdom-keepers of the Lakota ways carried through generations of the Black Elk family. This will lay the foundation for drumming, singing, and traditional knowledge-sharing by Jennifer’s son, Kari Black Elk, from 6-8 pm.

The registration price of $10 per person is for one or both presentations. As the presentations are expected to sell out, early reservations are encouraged at globalvillagemuseum.org. Refreshments will be served, and registration includes admission to the Museum’s four galleries. In the Main Gallery, One World, One Family honors indigenous peoples and their cultures. Photographs of Native American objects are showcased in the Museum’s Hall Gallery, and both exhibits run through Sept. 21. The Global Village Museum is located at 200 West Mountain Avenue, and Museum hours are 11 am to 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday.
