Wakan

"For the Sioux, wakan connoted everything that was sacred. They believed that all life forms of the universe were one and embodied wakan. The Sioux also held that everything in the natural world was circular, and therefore regarded the circle as sacred." -- James O. Gump, The Dust Rose Like Smoke: The Subjugation of the Zulu and the Sioux, p. 7
