ABOUT THE BOOK
"WATEHICA..." is a book about life and death, a book of feelings and
emotions...it is a book of wisdom shared by the elders of the author's youth.
Some stories are very old...some are new...but all have insight into the
Lakota soul...an insight that is not shown or shared by any writers...by any
Eya Mani will take you to the heights of your imagination. You will feel his
pain and sorrow as he says goodbye to a nephew slain in the streets of
Minneapolis by gang members...and you will laugh with him as he shares the
humor of the Lakota people.
You will learn many things unanswered before by any author...like the naming
of persons and the songs of honor sung at pow wows and ceremonies, and you
will learn the true meaning of love...and you will be kidnapped and abused.
From the humor of grandma's dogs, the introduction of twins, and on to the
slaying of a monster snake...you will want to share your adventures with
those you love and care about...just as Eya Mani is sharing his experiences
with you...after all...'we are all related...'"
