Precedes Kaatohkitopii: The Horse He Never Rode.
A tipi wonders about its purpose in modern life, and shows that as a home, it is the heart of its community. This short story demonstrates the process of teaching Îethka culture through the making of a tipi under the supervision of knowledge keepers. The Elders describe knowledge that is in the tipi, and also what was lost when people moved into homes. Today people in Mînîthnî face complex challenges related to housing, such as mold and toxicity, overcrowding, and inescapable domestic violence. Could some of these problems be fixed by reconnecting to Îethka traditions and culture? Is creator still watching over us? The tipi and the teachings are still with us, we just need the chance to learn from them. Availability – Worldwide
