About the Event
This lecture offers a look into the great visions of Wicasa Wakan (Holy Men) such as Black Elk’s Great Vision of the Flowering Tree of 1872, and Wovoka’s Ghost Dance of 1890. Learn about the contents of each vision and how these visions impacted the Indigenous people of the high plains and all people of the world for over four generations.
A book signing of Mystic Visions: Black Elk’s Great Vision Clarified will follow the program.
