Health Notes: May 20, 2024 – Mandan Dreams – Cedric Red Feather

Summary

Oral stories from a Mandan elder.

The oral histories, prophecies, and traditions of the Mandans are presented by an authentic waxikena, or Turtle Priest.  This conversation focuses on one specific aspect of Mandan life; the fast, sweat lodge, sun dance, and Okipa ceremony are discussed thoroughly.  Cedric Red Feather offers an open and honest (humorous) account of his own personal spiritual journey, coming to terms with his birthright as a Mandan waxikena.
