INTERVIEW – Gracie Horne of All My Relations located on E. Franklin in Minneapolis, Minnesota http://www.allmyrelationsarts.com/


Mitakuye Oyasin (All Are Related) is a phrase from the Lakota language. It reflects the world view of Interconnectedness held by the Lakota people.[1]

The phrase itself, and the underlying belief of interconnectedness with all creation, is a part of man Yankton Sioux prayers,[2] and is found in use among Lakota, Dakota and Nakota people.[3][4]

The phrase translates as “all my relatives,” “we are all related,” or “all my relations.” It is a prayer of oneness and harmony with all forms of life: other people, animals, birds, insects, trees and plants, and even rocks, rivers, mountains and valleys.[2]
