    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.

    I am searching fory family here is why. My grandmother was full Oglala Sioux. I never knew my mothers side as I was raised by my dad’s mother. She was very racist and besides calling me half breed, heathen, cutting my hair short and telling me I belonged to “my mothers people” when I acted up as a teenager. Sadly my mothers family has all passed away from what I can tell. So I am searching genealogy records and has been a dead end.

    I am told she was Oglala and I have been given two names Loretta Morningstar and Loretta Wakefield. Wakefield being her married name. She married an Irish man and lived in and around the St. Louis, MO area as an adult. My father met her several times and said that he asked her once what tribe she belonged to and she said Oglala Lakota Sioux.

    So for almost 50 years I have wanted to find if any members oft fily are still out there. She would have been born anywhere from 1900-1921. She was 21 in 1942 when my mother was born so hope my math is right. I will continue to try to find documents in Missouri but where would I find a census of Native Americans in their tribes? I do not even know if Morningstar was her name or a surname. Any suggestions would be appreciated
