If you were only able to buy one book on the Lakota sacred pipe.....

I would say that after reading them all this would be the one I would recommend. My kola tells me Catches Sr. was the last of the old school pipe carriers and he did it in a sacred way. This book does an excellent job of putting the Lakota "pipe way" into simple terms for the layman to understand. The traditional, sacred beliefs of this country's first people are not to be trifled with or changed to suit one's own needs. After reading the words of Petaga Yuha Mani you will understand why.

Scared Fireplace

A Book of Peace.

This book is great for those who wish to know the truth about the traditional Lahkota values and ceremonies. Ceremonies are explained with great care and love. The author conveys the wonderful sense of peace that he has found with following the rituals and the love he has for the Creator.


This is a MUST have book. I was fortunate enough to meet "Grandpa Pete" before his death and was so excited when I saw this book. Not many have been through more than him, and he expresses his beliefs wonderfully in this book. even if you are new to Lakota spirituality, he explains things in a way anyone can understand. He was a great man, and left a great legacy with this book.

Sacred Fireplace [Oceti wakan]

This book is a must read for anyone interested in Lakota spirituality. The author tells many stories from his life, the stories are so real and touching I could not put the book down.Just the chapters describing the various Lakota ceremonies, inipi,sun dance ,hanbleceya etc are worth the price of the book. I finished the book feeling uplifted and warm.The author's love and caring for his people,the earth and allits creatures is very apparent.Buy the
