SIOUX SONGS: SIYAKA TO HIS HORSE, by                    
First Line: We are in danger, the crows are surrounding us!
Last Line: Here is a horse that has aided a man!
Subject(s): Animals; Horses; Native Americans; Indians Of America; American Indians; Indians Of South America


We are in danger, the Crows are surrounding us!
If by your swiftness to safety you carry me,
I will go searching the best eagle feather
To tie in your tail, and around your hot neck,
Will fasten a strip of red cloth to your honor,
And paint your strong flanks, that the Tribe may all know:
Here is a horse that has aided a man!
