…the vision of Lakota Medicine Men, Petaga Yuha Mani (Pete Catches) and his son Zintkala Oyate (Peter Catches) continues to foster understanding and healing through education and promotion of timeless spiritual and cultural traditions…”
Oceti Wakan serves as a testament to cultural resilience and fortitude as we continue to respond to challenges faced by the Lakota/Dakota/Nakota Nation across seven generations.
Rooted in the vision of Lakota Medicine Men, Pete Catches Sr. (Petaga Yuha Mani) and his son Peter V. Catches (Zintkala Oyate), Oceti Wakan continues to foster understanding and healing through education and promotion of timeless spiritual and cultural traditions.
Following the passing of Oceti Wakan’s founders in 1993 and in 2018, their unwavering commitment continues with the leadership of the Oceti Wakan Board and staff who tirelessly carries their shared vision forward.
Peter Catches and his wife Cindy Catches have spent the past 34 years building the infrastructure of Oceti Wakan. Today we continue to grow under her unwavering leadership.
Please be patient with us as we build a new website, we have a new and improved look and feel and are excited to share with you our new offerings and vision.
