Uŋčí Makhá’s Shawl

Vector illustration, 20”x24” metal print

To Dakota/Lakota people, all the plants are woven together as part of Uŋčí Makhá’s shawl which covers her. Aŋpetu Wí and Haŋwí (Sun/Moon) are tasked with warming and cooling Grandmother Earth; the four winds bring the seasons and Wakíŋyaŋ, the thunder being, wakes the plant nation every year. When we acknowledge the land and honor the sacred hoop of life, we give thanks for the medicines and foods our Uŋčí (grandmother) provides for us.
