Lakota Star Knowledge - Studies in Lakota Stellar Theology

by Ronald Goodman

"Research into Lakota Stellar Theology has added new dimensions to our understanding of how the People generated the mentality for experiencing the sacred. It shows that they felt a vivid relationship between the macrocosm, the star world,and their microcosmic world on the plains. There is a constant mirroring of what is above by what is below. Indeed, the very shape of the earth was perceived as resembling the constellations... The stellar knowledge in the chapters which follow provides a new and larger context for understanding the time-factored Lakota lifeway. This knowledge enables the People to mirror on earth the activity of the spirits in the star world."
-- From the Introduction to Lakota Star Knowledge, by Ronald Goodman

Full of stories, charts, maps, and illustrations illuminating the significance of Lakota constellations.
