Ripe Turnips Moon

This week’s CAIRNS Etanhan Wotanin column discusses Tuesdays full moon, the four periods of time in Lakotan cosmology, the parallels between two Roman deities and two Lakotan spiritual beings, and names of the moon phases. The column, “Ripe Turnips Moon,” can be read now by clicking here, or later this week in the Lakota Times newspaper.
