We Are Now 7 of Us

Hanh mitakuyapi.  In the way of my People and many other ITI, 7 is a holy number.  When we pray, we address 7 Directions - The Four Directions of N, E, S, & W, and Tunkashila (Grandfather), Unchi Maka Ina Wakan (Grandmother Earth, our Holy Mother the Earth), and Wakan Tanka (the Great Mystery, also called the Great Holy, or Spirit - It is what makes the universe alive).  This being A Good Thing, I just thought I'd let you know.
