“The Red Nation shall rise again and it shall be a blessing for a world filled with broken promises, selfishness, and separations. A world longing for light again. I see a time of Seven Generations, when all the colors of mankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole earth will become one again. In that day, there will be those among the Lakota who will carry knowledge and understanding of unity among all living things, and the young white ones will come to those of my people and ask for this wisdom. I salute the light within your eyes where the whole universe dwells. For when you are at that center within you and I am at that place within me, we shall be one”.
–Crazy Horse, in what were his last words to Sitting Bull.
The Lakota Dream Horse Project: Here at ThinLine we find ourselves suddenly working with a tribe who has far too long kept themselves quietly on their reservation. Perhaps it is because our products speak to communication and respect for our horses, or perhaps it is part of a bigger plan foreseen by Crazy Horse.
We are now 7 generations from this great chief. The Lakota wish to merge our technology with their legacy of equine training and tack, and to explore the possibility of sharing knowledge and respect for the horse.
We hope you will gather your friends and horsemen, share the blog, speak to the Lakota, and join us in the journey. We are honored to have been chosen by today’s great red horsemen, and wait not only for their equine work but the daily words of wisdom and recounts of great equine legends.
Very Important: Click on the following:
The Lakota (part of the Sioux Nation) were the most respected horsemen in American Indian History. View this link to see what these horsemen lost since Wounded Knee. And we hope it will take you to your bookshelves to aid us in developing a library on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
Aaron Huey, presenting this slide show, works for National Geographic Magazine. This lecture and photos were developed merely out of his passion for the tribe. As ThinLine riders we hope you will enjoy The Lakota Dream Horse Project as they develop products and share their knowledge.
Please join us as we move toward the next phase of the Lakota project. Share with us your resources; let us know of your willingness to help, even in simply projects such as our book drive for the Lakota schools. For those who do not know, we have begun developing products designed by these great horsemen merging both the ThinLine technology and the traditional Lakota riding and horse training gear. It is our hope through a myriad of projects we will prevail with what will be not only an employment contract but a ray of hope honoring the original horsemen.
ThinLine is beginning a book drive for this reservation. We need HORSE BOOKS! Everything from children’s stories to training books. If you can donate a few books we would be grateful. Feel free to place a personal comment to the Lakota on the front inside cover of the book.
