Though the Niobrara Convocation is run in conjunction with the Diocese of South Dakota, the Convocation was actually held for the first time this year on the north side of Standing Rock Reservation, which is in North Dakota.
FYI…the south side of Standing Rock Reservation is geographically the size of Connecticut.

As to the sermon, it is a Sacred Circle, not a sacred hoop.
FYI…Wakan Tankan is the Lakota name for the great spirit. It basically means Grandfather.

Didn’t the Diocese attempt to shut down a bunch of Lakota congregations a year or two ago?

The previous Bishop, himself a Lakota ironically, did attempt to shut down several of the parish buildings on the Reservations that were virtually vacant and unattended. The current bishop, to his great credit, has put a stop to that.

Wakan tankan, bind us together in fruitfulness, to be peace in abundance for all our relations.
What a load of nonsense. Is there anything more embarrassing than the spectacle of the Presiding Bishop invoking a pagan deity at a supposedly Christian gathering? I have to imagine that even (especially?) the Native Americans in attendance were rolling their eyes at this line.
