The Great Fire roared down from the High Country and swept across Mother Earth, leaving the prairie charred and barren. Tatanka (buffalo), life to the People, were more. Riders from the Bear Claw village journeyed far from their hunting grounds in search of the sacred tatanka.

He was hyptized by the enchanting sounds. Then, a breeze blew across his face, lifting hair from his shoulders. Words followed. A friend waits, come. Mitakuye oyasin (we are all relatives). Come. Can this be, Little Red Feather questioned? Are there People in mountains that hide sun?
