Oko Iyawapi

 

In the Lakota language, oko iyawapi means “week count.” The Lakota week begins on Monday morning and ends on Sunday night. This oko iyawapi is organized around a photo taken each week at Wingsprings. It is based on a traditional waniyetu iyawapi, or “winter count.” But whereas Lakota winter counts were added to annually, this oko iyawapi is added to weekly.
