A Lakota Story
told by "Oliver Brown Wolf"


The Woman Who Lived With The Wolves...

Winyan Wan Sungmanitu Tanka Ob Ti...

A Minnekoju camp which had settled down for the winter was raided by Crow Indians. The Crow stole many horses and took a Lakota woman back to their camp.

The Lakota woman was unhappy staying in the Crow camp. She missed her people. Some of the Crow women saw this and took pity on her. They gave her food and a blanket and told her to hide by a creek near the camp.

Hohwoju oyate eya wani ti pi icuhan kangi wicasa kin sung manu ahi na ota mawicanu pi na nakun Lakota winyan ko akiyagla pi.
Kangi wicasa ti pi heciya winyan ki le aki pi ca titakuye wica kiksuye na lila cante sice na ceya ke, winyan ki ableza pi na heya pi ske, "Sina ki le ena, woyute ki lena icu, na wakpala ta inahma ye."


She hid herself in the bushes along the banks of the creek. A short time later some of the Crow men came looking for her. While the Lakota woman was hiding, two wolves came upon her. The wolves growled at her and circled around her. The woman thought the wolves were going to kill her.

But the wolves treated her kindly and guided her along a path to the east. The wolves and the woman traveled together while the Crow were chasing them.

Hoca mni aglala inahma ke, na oiyokpaza ca gla cu ke, icuhan sung'manitu tanka nump el hipi na oksan hlo omanipi ke, takinnas ena kte pi kta kecin ke. Sung'manitu tanka ki waste ca pi ke ca ob wancok wi yohinyanpata kiya si glu hapi ke.


A raging blizzard caught the woman and her wolf friends in the open prairie. Two more wolves joined them as they walked through the blowing snow. The small wolf pack and the woman struggled through the snowdrifts and the cold winds.

There is power in this story. The woman was able to get safely away from the Crow because of the blizzard. If one is travelling in a blizzard and remembers this story- one need not be afraid.

Blaye cokan gla pi ehanl osiceca tanka wan hihunni na icuhan sungmanitu tanka a ke numb hel opa pi ke. Hetan tehiya mani pi eyas hecena gla pi, kangi wicasa kanyela u pi k'on hetan kawinga pi.

Wooyake ki le wowas'ake yuha. Lakota winyan ki le osiceca ahi ca heon kpapte. Tuwa osiceca icuhan omani ki le wooyake ki kiksuye ehantans takuni toka.


After many days of traveling, the small band reached Squaw Buttes near present day Opal, South Dakota. They came to a cave in the rocks and the wolves forced her inside. The cave had an awful smell. As her eyes adjusted to the darkness, she saw many wolves in the large den. She thought that the wolves would tear her apart. Instead the wolves dragged in a deer- tore it apart- and shared it with the woman.

Anpetu ota mani pi ehanl "Winuhcala Paha" eya pica hel ihunni pi, iguga ohan ohloka wan ca sungmanitu tanka ki winyan ki etkita agla pi. Ohloka ki tima iyaia yukan lila sicamna ke, ista ki ecel itaya ca oksanksan etunwan sung'manitu tanka ki ataya tima hpaya pi ke. Tokinnas ahiyu pi na kiza pi kta kecin eyas etan tahca wan yaslohan yutimahel icupi ca ob wota.


The wolves were one big family. Many generations of wolves lived together in the cave. Each wolf had its own place in the family. The hunter wolves brought in the meat. The mother wolf nursed their young. The elder wolves taught the younger wolves the skills of hunting. The other wolves kept watch over the den. In this way, they all looked after each other.

Sung'manitu tanka ki lena ataya ti ospaye hecapi. Wicooncage tona ataya hel on pi. Hunh hoksi azin kiya hpaya pi. Hunh tanktankpi ca hena wakuwa heca pi. Hunh ocinsice k'on hena ti awanyanka pi. Sung'manitu tanka wicahcala ki ins cikcikala ki lena tokel wakuwa pi hecel onspe wica kiya pi. Ataya a'wan kica yanka pi.


The woman made herself a home in the den. She learned to speak and understand the wolves' language. The woman would dry and store the meat for the winter. She got along well with the wolves, and they got along well with her. Soon she smelled just like the other wolves.

The wolves knew their country well. They always knew whenever the two-legged ones passed through. The wolves usually stayed away from the two-leggeds. The wolves did not like the way they smelled.

Waniyetu ata hel ob wogla ke na iye nawicahun. Winyan ki lila wakabla na pusye. Sung'manitu tanka ki waste wicalake na insiya wastelaka pi. Winyan ki insiya sungmanitu tanka mna aya ke.

Sung'manitu tanka ki makoce ki le slolya pi. Tohanl hu numpa ki opta hiyaya pi can slolya pi, sung'manitu tanka ki lena hu numpa ki iheyab sna ecun pi. Lakota ki tonka mna pi ca he wahtela pi sni.


At turnip digging time of the year- the woman's mother was still mourning. She thought that her daughter had been killed. One day the hunter wolves saw the mother near the den. The wolves went back and told the woman.

The woman wanted to go back to her people. She was worried that they would not accept her back. The wolves told her to wave her blanket two times if she wanted to stay with her mother. If she waved once, the wolves would come and take her back to the den.

Wana tinpsinla wasteste ki walehanl winyan ki le hunku ki hehantan wasigla, cuwintku ki t'a kecin. Sung'manitu tanka ki ehake tunweya i pi ca hehan winyan ki le hunku ki wanyanka pi ca okiyaka pi. Winyan ki wancok taoyate ki ekta gla cin, eyas hekta kiya ikikcu pi ki he slolye sni.

Sung'manitu tanka ki heya pi, tohanl taoyate el ki na, ob on kta ehantans sina ki numpa koz si pi na e e ku cin, ehantans wanjala kos si pi.


When the mother saw her daughter coming, she was so happy to see her that she cried. The woman waved her blanket twice to the wolves who were watching her from the hills. The wolves saw this and went back to their cave.

The woman's name became Inyan Oti Win - "Woman who lived in the rock". The rock is now considered a sacred area to the Lakota.

Be careful of this tale, because if it is told on a winter night, it might cause a blizzard!

Wana, sung'manitu tanka ki kanyela hunku ki wawopta keya pi ca winyan ki etkiya iyaya. Ata kici yapi na ceya pi. Sina ki numpa koza ca sung'manitu tanka ki hektakiya kigla pi.

Ho, le winyan ki "Inyan Oti Win" eciya pi ca ohloka ki he Lakota ki wakan glawa pi. Wico'oyake ki le wowos'ake ikoya ke ca waneyetu ehanl Olake ki ungna osiceca wanji hihunni kte.
