The World Never Ends

Mary Louise Defender Wilson tells the Dakota legend of the old woman who lives in the sacred earth in an ancient cave with her dog. At the end of her story, she discusses the importance of storytelling to younger generations, “that each generation will carry something from the previous one, that will make them become more civilized and more high-minded and able to be kind, gentle and helpful to each other.”
