Oral Tradition and The Circle of History
The Dakota people used oral tradition to keep there race alive. So they would tell there children and then they would keep passing it on and on. Oral tradition is how they know most of those things in the book and on the internet.
The Circle of History is how the Dakota people saw history. When something happened in the past they thought it would always happen again. Part of how I think they thought that was, was because they did the same thing in every season every year.
