Lakota Pieta

Lakota mother at the center cradles her son's body under the lifeless tree. An eagle flies overhead. A feather has fallen to the ground. Only the dance of 4 warriors can restore the feather.

I am Lakota!
Lakota!
Standing on sacred land…

Sun pity me
Mother earth
Mother
Moon pity me
Father sky
Father
Shadows
Stretching on the forest floor
Mother earth
Oh pity me
Father sky
Father
Grass pity me
Mother earth
Mother
Rocks pity me
Father sky
Father
Water
Standing in a wakan manner
Mother earth
Oh pity me 

—Excerpts from “Lakota” by Joni Mitchell
