This book unites the correct scientific descriptions of a Field Guide with the spiritual and mythological background of the Lakóta and their ceremonies. The names of the animals and plants included in this book are also offered both in Lakótiya (Lakóta Language) and in Wašícuya (English, German and Spanish). In addition to this, the book offers valuable insights into ecology and environmental context. This Field Guide is dedicated to the Lakóta Youth, above all to the children who attend Lakóta schools. This book has also been written for visitors of the Great Plains area, such as ornithologists, zoologists and botanists, or interested tourists. It includes a small dictionary (Lakóta – English / English – Lakóta) of the names of the animals and plants.
