One thought on “Tasunka: A Lakota Horse Legend”

  1. Beautiful ledger style drawings of horses (I was the horse girl in middle school, I'm all about this) and a story of the Lakota people

  2. One of the things I look for when reading a traditional story rooted in a Native Nation is an attribution of where the story was heard, and from whom. In Tasunka: A Lakota Horse Legend, Montileaux gives us that information right away in a two-page introduction.Montileaux heard this story from Alex White Plume, a Lakota elder and storyteller. In a radio interview, Montileaux says more about the story, assuring readers that he is retelling the story as it is told. Initially, White Plume was reluct [...]

  3. I cannot attest to the accuracy of this book. But I can comment on a few of the elements. This was written as a historical telling of the Lakota people, by a Lakota man. The illustrations are stunning. While I was reading it I felt like I could almost see the horses running. It really grabbed me. The text is written in English and the Lakota language. This is so lovely for Lakota children who can read a story in their tribe's language. It is also great for non-Lakota children to see another lang [...]

  4. This Legend is about the discovery of horses by a Lakota warrior out hunting for food. This warrior had never seen these beasts before and thought to catch one for food. As he tries to catch them he sees that they are fast and when he finally meets up with them he tames them and learns how to ride them. He brings them back to his people where they gain great wealth and stat conquering other tribes. The gods are saddened by this and they take away their gift of horses. As the story goes a long ti [...]

  5. I love the bilingual text. My grandfather grew up in the time of the Indian Schools and wasn't allowed to speak his birth mother's language for fear that he'd be taken away. I only learned a handful of words that he knew so I appreciate seeing the story in both languages (I would also enjoy an audio version, told in both languages, so I could hear my great-grandmother's tongue).The drawings are beautifully rendered and the moral of the story is one that many children -regardless of heritage- nee [...]

  6. I loved this book and the diversity it shows. taken from a native American point of view a legend of how the horse was discovered and how when it was taken away by the great spirit that new settlers brought horses with them too. I also enjoyed how they had the native American language from the tribe below the English paragraphs.

  7. This marvelously illustrated bilingual tale is a retelling of a Lakota story about Tasunka, the horse, and how horses were given and then taken away from the Lakota people by the Great Spirit. The illustrations and color palette are in the style of ledger books from the 1860s to 1910s. This would make an excellent addition to any collection of Native American tales.

  8. What a beautiful book! Written in English and Lakota, the story describes how the Great Spirit gifted the Native Americans with the horse, and how they lost the gift. The illustrations are wonderful!

  9. My favorite part of this book was when the boy met the horses for the first time. I also liked that the pages had English and Lakota.

  10. Not necessarily a programming book but loved this one for the story and illustrations. it had horses in it!

  11. A beautiful book that is written in English and Lakota. So good to see a Native American author and illustrator and even better to see a remarkable work like this one.
