Tasunka: A Lakota Horse Legend
Illustrated by: Donald F. Montileaux, Oglala Lakota
Lakota translation by: Agnes Gay

Curiosity leads a young warrior to track a new animal. It leads him far from home, but at last he finds a herd of the strange new creatures. They are horses that shimmer with color and run swift as the wind. The Lakota capture and tame them, and the people grow rich and powerful. They become filled with pride. Whit their newfound strength they rule over the plains. Then the Great Sprit, who gave the gift of the horse, takes it away.

Don Montileaux, retells the legend of Tasunka from the traditional stories of the Lakota people using the ledger-art style of his Lakota culture. Montileaux is an enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota Nation, an award-winning artist, illustrator, and story-teller.
