Introd­uction

There are 12 Lakota Virtues that were a part of everyday life for our Native American ancestors. They were considered essential to balance and happiness in life,

The Lakȟóta people; also known as Teton, Thítȟuŋwaŋ ("pr­airie dwelle­rs"), and Teton Sioux ("snake, or enemy") are an indigenous people of the Great Plains of North America. They are part of a confed­eration of seven related Sioux tribes, the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ or seven council fires, and speak Lakota, one of the three major dialects of the Sioux language.

The Lakota are the wester­nmost of the three Siouan language groups, occupying lands in both North and South Dakota. The seven bands or "­sub­-tr­ibe­s" of the Lakota are:

Sičháŋǧu (Brulé, Burned Thighs)
Oglála ("They Scatter Their Own")
Itázipčho (Sans Arc, Without Bows)
Húŋkpapȟa ("End Villag­e", Camps at the End of the Camp Circle)
Mnikȟówožu ("Plant beside the Stream­", Planters by the Water)
Sihásapa ("Black Feet")
Oóhenuŋpa (Two Kettles)
