Joseph Flying Bye shares memories of the 1920's and 30's, helping the elders of that time perform ceremonies as they had learned from their grandfathers. At this time there are only a few elders who can see that far back into the past. The purpose of these recordings is to pass on what we currently know of that past and where we stand with these ways at this time. In this way, we can help the future generations hear an elder from those early times speak and pray.
The ceremonial songs contained in these recordings are considered sacred to the Lakota nation. Please treat them with honor and respect, and they will lead you to a place of peace and understanding. In troubled times they will bring you strength and comfort. They are a gift from the grandparents before us.
Remember to live a good life, and do good things with each day that you are given. Help each other and encourage each other to be good people.
We all play a part in what the future will be for the next generation. They will remember the things that they saw us do while we were with them and they will look at the path that we left behind for them to follow. Use your lifetime to leave a beautiful trail behind you.
At this time we are expecting to produce at least five different recordings total. Please check back periodically for release dates. Your purchases will help to keep our project alive.
