After the Great Spirits created the world, Tatanka, the holy man, turned himself into a buffalo and sacrificed his powers to help the Lakota people survive. With all that Tatanka provided, the Lakotas adapted to the world around them and prospered. 

Oglala Lakota artist Donald F. Montileaux's beautiful paintings offer dramatic colors and forms to this story of beginnings.
