Following on a previous thread, I'd like to ask if there are any anecdotes specific to Lakota Indians. Specifially regarding horses, white horses, ghosts, deceased spouses, any and any combination of those.

And also what a modern Lakota's reaction to encountering instances of the above would be.

Here's a link to a website with quite a lot on it about Native American legends. Not sure how much Lakota, but possibly a start. Puma

Try 'Seven Arrows' by Hyemeyohst Storm, for starters.

Bear in mind that most tribes have an oral tradition of storytelling and there are some who are not comfortable with their stories being written down. I can't speak for the Lakota, mind.
