The Lakota Sioux and Seminole Religious Cultures merged their two Indigenous American Native Religious Cultures; earth based healing and empowering spiritual traditions, December 17, 2007. The original agreement named this merging of American Native spiritual traditions, Oklevueha Lakota Sioux Native American Church, predominately known as Oklevueha Native American Church.

The merging of these two spiritual traditions honors the courageous heritage of the Oglala and Lakota Sioux Nation, and the Oklevueha Band of Seminole Indians.  This merging brought about the availability of these two indigenous spiritual traditions to the public as one.

The Oglala and Lakota Sioux spiritual leaders Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, and Fool Bull (Native Americans) maintained their spiritual traditions through a tenacious commitment in honoring their American Native culture, which is, honoring and respecting Mother Earth and Father Sky.   Both Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull were murdered primarily, for their unwavering commitment to honor their American Native way of life.  Fool Bull tenaciously weaved his traditional medicine spiritual ways through the reservation world of corrupt politics of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. This weaving enabled his descendents of Sioux spiritual traditions such as, Leslie Fool Bull and Richard ‘He Who Has the Foundation’ Swallow to survive and blossom in the reservation world.
