We have a dream...

people all around the world interested in Tsitsistas and Sutaio  (the Cheyenne people), their history, culture, and today’s life will get together. We believe many of you want to support Tsitsistas and Sutaio in their great struggle for the right to live in their own way and for survival of the Cheyenne traditions. Maybe, the most endangered heritage of the Cheyenne people is the native language hence we focus on the support of the Cheyenne language revitalization. In coordination with active members of the Tsitsistas and Sutaio groups, we offer our hands for help. We have a shared dream: the Cheyenne children speaking Cheyenne in next four, forty four, even four hundred forty five generations. Heá’ėhénése.   >> more about the Honóxease project

Honóxease or western meadowlark is a good spirit of this project. The Cheyenne sacred story of Falling Star narrates about a western meadowlark who brought up Hotóhketana’ȯhtse (Falling Star). In older times, the Cheyenne people prepared meat and eggs of western meadowlark for kids to encourage their skills of talking. Honóxease is a friend of Cheyenne children.
