Oceti Wakan
New Arrival

Lakota Books is proud to carry books and CDs from the first Lakota Publishing Company, Oceti Wakan (Sacred Fireplace.) owned and operated by The Catches Family whose legacy stems from the famous wicasa wakan and Sun dance leader, Peter S. Catchers, Sr. (Petaga Yuha Mani), made famous by his son Peter V. Catches (Zintkala Oyate) in the book, Sacred Fireplace (Oceti Wakan): Life and Teachings of a Lakota Medicine Man. Originally Published by Clear Light Publishers, Santa Fe, NM in 1999, the book continues to be published by Oceti Wakan Publishing Company.

The purpose of the Oceti Sakowin is to quote Peter V. Catches:

“Lakota is an oratorical society. The language is not so much kept by reading and writing Lakota, it is kept alive by speaking it to each other in everyday settings. If we truly hope to save the Lakota culture, we must save the language. Language is what formulates how one sees the world. It is the foundation of any culture.”
(Zintkala Oyate)

All the following books include CDs.
