    Hi, I have been discovering my spirituality and have asked my guides to show themselves. I was shown a male elder in full beaded buckskin. When I asked which tribe, I was told, Sioux. I did not really know my father or his family. They were Norwegian and they lived somewhere in S. Dakota. My baby ring was made by the black foot or Black hill Indians. I am very interested to learn of the tribe that would be associated with the black hills and near a Norwegian settlement. I want to study their spiritual teachings.
    I greatly appreciate any help or guidance you can provide.
    Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
