Parts of Arvol Lookinghorse's land are considered to be very sacred and to be the spiritual center of the Lakota Nation. Arvol Lookinghorse is the "keeper of the sacred bundle" a sacred collection of artifacts for the Lakota people. Many Lakota people and other pilgrims come to Arvol Lookinghorse's land for religious ceremonies and guidance. STEPHANIE KEITH/REUTERS
