Post Black Elk
I know of two modern era songs using lyrics or words by Black Elk (author of several books, Medicine Man, and Holy Man of the Oglala Lakota (Sioux). He was a second cousin of Crazy Horse).
I would like to learn of more songwriters using Black Elk quotes and themes, if there are any.

Can anyone name any?
Most obvious is... "Black Elk Speaks" by Railroad Earth.
I'll name the other I know of, if nobody else mentions it first.

“All over the sky a sacred voice is calling your name.” ~ Black Elk

“It is hard to follow one great vision in this world of darkness and of many changing shadows. Among those men get lost.” ~ Black Elk

Black Elk believed in your lifetime, you will encounter seven crossroads that can change your life. If you go down the wrong path, you can turn back to the other path. The longer you go down the wrong path, the longer it takes to find the right path.

All this is in the Allman Brothers Dickey Betts written song Seven Turns.

Might this also be where the Seven Walkers got their name and the meaning of the song "Seven Walkers"? Just a thought....listen to the words and get the meaning of the song....
