You will learn how both a Lakota and Japanese artist collaborated on a project.  Mr. Junku Muto had a vision to create seven sculptors in order to circle the earth.  A great project to promote world peace.  The first sculpture was placed at the Vatican, the second in India, and the third at Devils Tower.  Sandy Swallow shares how she became a small part in this project.  How Wind Circle became an emotional look back in history.
