Wakanda

by Micha F. Lindemans
The omnipresent, invisible life-force of the Dakota Indians. It is also the personification of the Dakota Creator. Wakanda is the Omaha variant of Wakan Tanka, and can be compared with the manitou of the Algonquin, and the oki of the Iroquois. Among the Lakota, he is Wakonda, "the power above".
