I began this blog in February 2005 with a small post and quote about Thunder Butte from Wiwambli, a Lakota poet who lives on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. Now, I find that Thunder Butte and Wiwambli are featured on the album cover of a DVD at the Dakota Discovery Museum store located here. Titled "Canku Wakan ~ Holy Road," the music DVD was filmed on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation. With a picture of Wakinyan Paha (Thunder Butte) in the background and Wiwambli (Raymond Uses His Knife) on a horse in the foreground, this may be the only filmed media available for sale which depicts this particular place -- Thunder Butte -- which has been sacred to the Lakota for generations.

A copy of the DVD can be purchased by going online to the Dakota Discovery Museum Store by clicking on this link.
