To speak of community usually conjures up a mental image of a township with city blocks, border lines, and the buildings and residents therein. This would not be an accurate picture of the community as it is understood by the Lakota people. Community is much more encompassing than city limits and lines drawn on a map. Our way is much more comprehensive than that. It may be explained logically as the outlying areas, farms and homesteads of rural dwellers and those who live outside the limits set by modern terminology. However, in our way of thinking it is the people and the total environment, regardless of the proximity or distance from the city center.
