The Gift homepage

This section of the exhibit explores the seven ceremonies ⎯ "gifts" ⎯ that Black Elk says were foretold by the White Buffalo Woman. For each gift, a Lakotan musician or musical group composed a song, a Lakotan poet wrote a poem, and two Lakotan visual artists each created an artwork. The creative works of these 21 Lakotans constitute the Gifts section of the exhibit.
