STORY AND SONG OF THE LEADER
Then he struck up this song and led the way; and, as the men and women followed, they caught the tune, and all sang it as they came near the Sioux village.
In the words the Leader, as representing the Omahas, speaks: "I am advancing. I am moving toward you. Behold me, young men, warriors of the Sioux! Here I stand. Wa-kon'-da alone decides the destinies of men."
The visitors met with a welcome, and the breach between the two tribes was healed for many a long day.
