The Lakota word for horse is Sunka Wakan, or Holy Dog. At sunrise, a horse gallops through the Lakota village of traditional tipis. A geometric Morning Star greets the dawn over each dwelling, announcing the coming of sunlight to the earth and the gift of a new day. The horse or Holy Dog stands for strength and unity, the central figure in a design that represents how Nature and Native people are one.
