The Brinton to open ‘Lakota Emergence’ March 20

The Brinton Museum will present the 14th Illustrator Show — “Lakota Emergence,” originated by the Center for American Indian Research and Native Studies, opening in the S. K. Johnston, Jr. Family Gallery on March 20. Traditional Lakota belief is that their ancestors emerged onto this earth through Wasun Niya, a cave now known as Wind Cave in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Seven families of those ancestors, known as Pte people, followed a wolf from their home in the underworld to this earth. They were led by a man named Tokahe who was deceived, by the Trickster and Double Face woman, into believing this upperworld was a paradise.
