A Native American Princess.... Ho Chuck Nation Pow Wow, Black River Falls, Wisconsin.

Sioux/dakotas, espalhavam-se pelos estados de Dakota do Norte e do Sul, no centro-norte dos Estados Unidos. Eram os mais agressivos contra os brancos e tinham cerimônias que incluíam rituais de tortura como prova de bravura. Num desses rituais, mostrado no filme Um Homem Chamado Cavalo (1970), o índio tinha a pele atravessada por pinos de madeira presos a cordas, que eram estendidas para erguer o corpo até gerar dilacerações. Os sioux resistiram aos brancos até 1890, quando foram massacrados.

To have courage is to have the mental and moral strength to listen to our heart. It takes courage to do what is morally right. Native people were told by the Elders to be proud of who they were and never to deny the way of life the Great Spirit gave them. It is with Courage that we reclaim our rightful place in the circle of life and the right to honour the Great Spirit and pray for all people.
