Available in CD format.  Dovie Thomason (Lakota/Kiowa-Apache), Wopila, A Giveaway: Lakota Stories. 1993, 60 minutes, grades 3-up.

These are traditional stories, with music by Lakota flutist Kevin Locke. The stories on Side 1 are cautionary tales to protect our children—“from danger, fear, monsters, and anything that threatens their well-being or self-worth.” Of these, “Iya, the Camp Eater” is especially frightening for the message it carries, as much as the story. Side 2 contains three stories of the foolish one, Iktomi—“Iktomi & the Buzzard,” “Iktomi & Ducks & Rock,” and “Iktomi Changes His Mind”—teaching us how not to behave.
