Inipi (sweat lodge) is an ancient ceremony used for purification and healing. Participants crawl into a small lodge and hot rocks are placed into a pit in the center. Water is sprinkled on the rocks, instantly turning into steam. Songs are sung and prayers are made to the Creator.
David Swallow Jr. is a Lakota spiritual leader in the Porcupine District of the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. On this recording, he sings songs from rounds 1 through 4 of the Inipi ceremony with Nyla Helper. The songs are sung in Lakota and the CD includes an 8 page booklet with English translations.
