Long awaited by those who knew Peter Catches, Sr. (Petaga Yuha Mani) and his work, this book is a major legacy of his life and the essence of his teachings in his own words. The book describes his struggles to embrace Lakota traditions and language, as well as the Spotted Eagle medicine way. It offers reflections on the history and culture of his people and on his own life, together with Lakota stories and legends and accounts of healings, his personal visions, and traditions of Native American spirituality. 'The Sacred Fireplace' ('Oceti Wakan') is a vision shared by Peter Catches, Sr. and his son Peter Catches (Zintkala Oyate), both Spotted Eagle medicine men of the Oglala Lakota. Oceti Wakan represents a commitment to cultural and spiritual revitalisation in response to events that have devastated the Lakota over the last six generations. The Catches' dream of revitalisation -- encompassing spiritual, physical, educational, and social and economic development dimensions -- is focused on creating a place 'for the healing of the family as a whole by rekindling Lakota spiritual values and culture.'
