Greeting the Warhorse

Updated: 5 days ago


There was a need,

There was a prayer,

There is an answer.

According to Lakota legend, and oral traditions, the first horse of North America was the size of a large dog. That belief is translated in their language and what they call a horse today.

The Lakota prayed for their return as it was in their prophesies, story telling and oral traditions for over a millennia. And so what we now see is the relationship between native peoples and the horse as it is today. Their survival depended on the Horse just as it did on the Buffalo. Their reverence for the Horse and the Buffalo is so deep it can easily be attributed to their DNA memory.
