"Joseph Shields, Jr. has given a gift of spirit. This compilation of Lakota pipe songs is very sacred, honest, and pure."

"At long last a cd of Lakota Canunpa songs, one we can understand and learn from. Of course like most recordings of this type, it's not quite melodious, but it serves the purpose. It would have been better had the words been included in both Lakota & English....for those who don't know what they are singing about, but for some reason it seems as though the words are not provided as some sort of deterrent to those people who would just go along and sing these Sacred songs just for the hell of it. As if! Most common people would even bother..... But it has helped me...."
