Symbol of sun and earth.

This is the Lakota symbol of the sun and earth. In Lakota, it is called Kapemni which means twisting. The top inverted triangle represents the stars and the sun. The lower triangle represents the earth. The center represents the connection between the earth and the sun. The Lakota tribe observed the celestial and earthly changes around them and realized the earth mirrors the star world. As above, so below is a phrase this symbol represents.

The Lakota tribe made maps of the constellations and maps of the earth. They distinguished valleys, hills, and plains on their maps. They believed that the shape of a star was like an inverted cone and the shape of the earth was a tipi. This symbol is found on their maps.
