Like other Indigenous peoples, the Dakota and Lakota have stories about amazing creatures that recount everything from how they came into creation to why they are important in everyday life. 

Join C̣aƞte Máza (Neil McKay) and Rocky Makes Room For Them to learn about amazing creatures such as the horse and bison, and their importance in D/Lakota language and culture.
