A lovely way to stay in touch each month with your journey on the Good Red Road. Some famous Lakota, sometimes referred to as the Sioux, were Red Cloud who was from the Oglala band of the Lakota. Two other notable Lakota men were Sitting Bull, a medicine man, and Crazy Horse, a great and brave warrior. Another of the Oglala Band of Lakota who has been influential in much spiritual learning was the Holy Man or Medicine Man known as Black Elk.
