Yankton Sioux Chief Golden Light Eagle describes the Sundance, held at the Summer Solstice, one of the seven sacred Sioux traditional rites described by Black Elk in the book 'The Sacred Pipe.' Chief Golden Light Eagle describes various elements that make up the rite and their meaning. He shares the rite's evolution which he personally witnessed, having grown up with the Sundance, both when it was illegal and legal. He sings two traditional songs from the rite and describes the dramatic changes he has seen in the Sundance as an evolving cultural and spiritual tradition. He shares his own insights and life lessons for right life and action. The Chief also describes the history of the Sundance under the US government, since the end of the 'Indian Wars.' The Yankton Sioux's Dakota name is Ihanktonwan Dakota Oyate, meaning 'People of the End Village.' Historically, the tribe were the protectors of the sacred Pipestone Quarry for the Oceti Sakowin.

As either a consumer or a customer service rep, we've been involved in unpleasant, unsatisfying and, often, irritating situations that sometimes turn into confrontations. Our guests are experts in customer service and consumer advocacy. Mary Cooley is a human resources expert on customer service and employee turnover and Joel Cruz Esparza is Assistant Attorney General in New Mexico and the director of the state Office of Consumer Protection. They'll help you learn to stay calm and communicate clearly to keep peace in consumerville.
