1824. A collection of legends told to Zitkala-Sa by the old Dakota storytellers including: Iktomi and the Ducks; Iktomi's Blanket; Iktomi and the Muskrat; Iktomi and the Coyote; Iktomi and the Fawn; The Badger and the Bear; The Tree-Bound; Shooting of the Red Eagle; Iktomi and the Turtle; Dance in a Buffalo Skull; The Toad and the Boy; Iya, the Camp-Eater; Manstin, the Rabbit; and The Warlike Seven.
AFAR off upon a large level land, a summer sun was shining bright. Here and there over the rolling green were tall bunches of coarse gray weeds. Iktomi in his fringed buckskins walked alone across the prairie with a black bare head glossy in the sunlight. He walked through the grass without following any well-worn footpath.
