      Creation of the Buffalo Nation - Lakota

      "The Great Spirit Skan made us with bones from Stone, bodies from Earth, and
      souls from himself, Wind and Thunders. The gifts of Sun, Wisdom, Moon, and
      Revealer gave us life. A council of the spirits named us Pte Oyate - Buffalo
      Nation - and told us to care for the spirits.

      One day Spider sent Wolf to the Underworld to tell Tokahe that life would be
      easier on the surface of the earth. Tokahe ignored the warnings of the holy
      man Tatanka, and led the people up through Wind Cave. Life there was hard,
      so Tatanka came to help - as a great, shaggy beast. Since then the people
      have lived here with the buffalo."
