CourseGraphic The Lakota would gather every winter to record the year’s events in pictographs on buffalo skins called winter counts or waniyetu wowapi. Each community or tiospaye had its own winter count keeper who was responsible for maintaining the winter count and remembering its stories. These winter counts reflected the community’s history and culture. Join us as we explore history from a different perspective.
