[Review] OTEHI - Garden of God

OTEHI - Garden of God
"When there's a severe winter and people are going through difficult times due to lack of heat or food, this is 'OTEHI'. When someone we love is sick or dies, this is 'OTEHI'. When epidemics strike us, when people die, when there is no more hope, this is 'OTEHI'.
'OTEHI' is not only an ancient Lakota word, it's a brotherhood, a way to conceive the world.
