    There would be a winter sweat lodge inside a building and a summer sweat lodge outside so they could use the facility at any time and in any weather. They claimed that "four sacred trees" were in the path of the planned construction of Highway 55 and that these trees were "sacred" because they were planted there to mark the burial grounds of some of their Dakota ancestors. Peter mentioned the difference in thought about the little ones, that they are born sacred in contrast with the western view of born being in sin. For a long time, the Dakotas have believed that all of the Unktehi were killed by Thunderbird, a manifestation of Wakan Tanka God. The Dakotas believed that Unktehi was a fundamentally evil supernatural being who occasionally did some good things when placated.

    Cavender stated that Unktehi goes from Morgan's bluff through a subterranean passage that leads to a "sacred spring" Coldwater Spring and he then goes through an "underground river" to the "big river" the Mississippi to "get out into the world. They also gathered wild rice along the vast lakes throughout Mni Sota. The French, instigated fights between the Ojibwe and Dakota so as to ally themselves with the Ojibwe.

Prayers were given in the Circle by a Buddhist monk, a Muslim teacher, a Catholic priest, a Jewish rabbi, a Baptist minister and a host of others. His attention was drawn away from the conversation several times as Bear stared at the beautiful spotted eagle feather hanging from Peter's long black hair.

    Event organizers decided the ceremonies should be led by American Indians and this prompted Ingeborg to suggest Peter and Lee for this honor. Wakan Tanka, as Thunderbird, came to fight Unktehi and sent lightning crashing to earth. As previously stated, Jahner wrote: "The second of Walker's publications on Lakota society is a brief section in "The Sun Dance"pp. And I believe that now-days some of Minnesota's Dakota activists and their white historian allies are distorting the truth about the Unktehi for the purpose of gaining leverage to accomplish their activist goals.

Kinship formed the basis for traditional Dakota social structure. One would have to ignore the documentation of the French finding the first Dakota village that Dakota migrated to at the mouth of the MN River in At the time, the Dakotas abandoned their respect for the Iowa tribe's property rights, whose homelands were about miles south of Mille Lacs Lake, including the land at the confluence of the Minnesota and Mississippi rivers the Mdote area.

As much as they feared Iya and Unktehi they believed that the destruction was part of the life cycle. And these so-called "creation stories" are refuted by the Dakota themselves.
