When crafty Ikt mi comes across a hungry ya, he fears he may become its next meal but ya has bigger plans: he's going to eat the nearby village With a trick or two up his sleeve, Ikt must find a way to save the people from ya's never-ending appetite. Complete Lakhota translation.

Ikt mi, whose name literally means "spider," is a trickster figure, shape-shifter, and cultural hero in traditional Lakhota, Dakhota, and Nakhota Sioux American Indian stories.

According to legend, he was born, full-growth from an egg. The first-born son of Inya - the Rock, he is the size of an ordinary man and possesses supernatural powers and spider-like qualities. He is both the fool and a sly, cunning teacher; good and bad; hero and anti-hero.
