Wisdom, Fortitude, Generosity, Bravery…these are the virtues of a Lakota warrior. These are the very characteristics that have made the mystique of the Lakota warrior legendary, even today.
From stories of past warriors to chronicles of warriors of our modern times, many books in our collection speak of the trials of becoming a warrior and the important role these men played in the day-to-day lives of the Plains Indians, as well as their distinguished performances in our recent past – WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm.
Today, our military is even learning to incorporate the ways of the warrior.
Here at Prairie Edge, we have had experience with our local armed forces who have asked permission to use the symbols of the Lakota Nation to honor and gain some of the Native Warrior ways. Our Lakota men and women serve in the military to help protect our rights as American citizens so we can continue to speak out against injustice and practice our ways both old and new.
