Sample text

First cleanse (purify) ourselves ritually with smoke or water, and then let Wakan-Tanka make us into clean bones to work in and through for the sake of others. You have seen pipes that are clogged with junk or mineral deposits. " "Doubt, guilt, reluctance, fear, selfishness, wanting to tell Wakan-Tanka how and when it ought to be done . .

It follows then that we are always in public view, and that our behavior must be the best. I do not argue, do not fight, do not hate, do not gossip, and I have never said a swear word.
