Greet the Dawn: The Lakota Way
S. D. Nelson (Illustratör)
Pickup trucks and eagles, yellow school buses and painted horses, Mother Earth and Sister Meadwolark all join together to greet the dawn. They marvel at the colors and sounds, smells and memories that come with the opening of the day. Animals and humans alike turn their faces upwards and gaze as the sun makes its daily journey from horizon to horizon. Dawn is a time to celebrate with a smiling heart, to start a new day in the right way, excited for what might come. Birds sing and dance, children rush to learn, dewdrops glisten from leaves, and gradually the sun warms us. Each time the sun starts a new circle, we can start again as well. All these things are part of the Lakota way, a means of living in balance. S. D. Nelson offers young readers a joyous way of appreciating their culture and surroundings. He draws inspiration from traditional stories to create Greet the Dawn. His artwork fuses elements of modern with traditional. Above all, he urges each of us to seize the opportunity that comes with the dawn of each new day. S. D. Nelson is a member of the Standing Rock Sioux. He is the author and illustrator of numerous award-winning children's books, including Dance in a Buffalo Skull, also from the SDSHS Press. His work can be seen in private and public collections across the country.
