Devil's Tower National Monument, Wyoming, 8-27-2007

Devils Tower is a sacred site to Native Americans, including the Lakota Sioux, Arapaho, Crow, Cheyenne, Kiowa, and Shoshone tribes. The Lakota revere Devils Tower, which they call Mato Tipila, meaning Bear Lodge. They often camped nearby where they performed ceremonies like the Sun Dance and did vision quests. Prayer offerings, including sacred bundles and cloth, are still left by the tower. (
