Hereditary Chief, Phil Lane Jr.

"This spiritual understanding of Wopida requires each of us to live with honor, compassion, love, respect and harmony with all life. This spiritual understanding recognizes that the Hurt of One is the Hurt of All and the Honor of One is the Honor of All and that we are intimately related as an integral part of all Life. We are all relatives!"

What is a "Wopida"?
"Wopida" is a Dakota word with profound, infinite, eternal meaning and transforming spiritual energy. The purpose of the December 10th Global Wopida Ceremony is to be thankful and grateful for whatever Life bestows on us, knowing that every test and challenge comes into our lives for our spiritual growth and upliftment!

"Whenever our souls and the innermost chambers of our heart are filled with thanksgiving and gratitude, it becomes filled with compassion, love, understanding, forgiveness, joy, happiness and oneness and there is no room for fear, hate, prejudice, revenge, jealousy, loneliness, disunity or separation from ourselves and other Members of our Human Family." Dakota and Chickasaw Elder and Spiritual Leader, Phil Lane Jr.
