Black Elk speaks
My first visionI met with a council of the Six Grand-fathers representing the four cardinal directions as well as the earth and sky. They each offered him gifts that bestowed power, including a pipestone pipe. Through a series of events, Black Elk believed he gained not only power, but also the ability to heal.
secretI kept my vision a secret because I didn't want people to know I then told someone once i became a young mature man.
