Page 168 - Wakan'tanka does not intend they shall do so directly — man must do the greater part in securing an understanding.
Page 200 - Taku6kan3karj, the moving deity ... is the most powerful of their [the Dakota] gods; the one most to be feared and propitiated, since, more than all others, he influences human weal and woe. He is supposed to live in the four winds, and the four black spirits of night do his bidding.2 Miss Alice C. Fletcher uses the term "Something that moves...
Page 200 - Miss Fletcher says: An intelligent Santee Indian said to me: . . . "The Four Winds are sent by ' the Something that moves '. There is a ' Something that moves ' at each of the ' Four Directions or Quarters'. . . . Among the Santee (Sioux) Indians the Four Winds are symbolized by the raven and a small black stone, less than a hen's egg in size.

A medicine man would not try to dream of all herbs and treat all diseases, for then he could not expect to succeed in all nor to fulfill properly the dream of any one herb or animal. He would depend on too many and fail in all. That is one reason why our medicine men lost...
Page 96 - I must give something that I really value to show that my whole being goes with the lesser gifts; therefore I promise to give my body.
Page 201 - When I was ten years of age, I looked at the land and the rivers, the sky above, and the animals around me and could not fail to realize that they were made by some great power. I was so anxious to understand this power that I questioned the trees and the bushes. It seemed as though the flowers were .itaring at me, and I wanted to ask them, "Who made you?
Page 313 - One evidence which the Ind1 give for believeing this place to be the residence of Some unusial Sperits is that they frequently discover a large assemblage of Birds about this Mound [this] is in my opinion a Sufficent proof to produce in the Savage Mind a Confident belief of all the properties which they ascribe [to] it.
Page 2 - An act to divide a portion of the reservation of the Sioux Nation of Indians in Dakota into separate reservations, and to secure the relinquishment of the Indian title to the remainder, and for other purposes.
