“Wakan Tanka” was the supreme creator, “The Great Everything” to the Lakota people.
The buffalo was a emblem of just that; he symbolized all of life. Alone, this animal was able to provide the Lakota with shelter and clothing from its hide as well as ample sustenance for their tribe. The buffalo became a symbol of abundance and in return became a figure of their gratitude.
