New CAIRNS Exhibit: The Gift of the Sacred Pipe

This week’s column is about the latest CAIRNS exhibit in our Lakota Educational Arts Project (LEAP) series. The title of the exhibit is “The Gift,” and it is organized into two sections. The first section focuses on a traditional narrative of the gift of the sacred pipe that Lone Man recorded for Frances Densmore in 1913. The second section looks at the seven ceremonies that Black Elk said were foretold by White Buffalo Woman and that are associated with the sacred pipe.
