Product Overview

Long awaited by those who knew Peter Catches, Sr. (Petaga Yuha Mani) and his work, this book is a major legacy of his life and the essence of his teachings in his own words. Peter Catches lived on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota throughout his life and healed and instructed both Indians and non-Indians near his home and off the reservation for decades. Petaga Yuha Mani (Walks with Hot Coals) was credited with reviving the Sun Dance ceremony among the Lakota and bringing knowledge of the Spotted Eagle Way of medicine to thousands of Native Americans and non-Natives alike. The book describes his struggles to embrace Lakota traditions and language, as well as the Spotted Eagle medicine way. It offers reflections on the history and culture of his people and on his own life, together with Lakota stories and legends and accounts of healings, his personal visions, and traditions of Native American spirituality.
