Content : The young Winona lives happily in the Oceti sakowin oyate tribe, the people of the seven fires where everyone is respectful of the others. When the caribou leave, tradition dictates that young people go hunting and kill their totem animal. They will have to cover themselves with their skin and return to the village. The totem then becomes their protection.
But Winona does not want to kill. She will meet Tokela, the fox. Spared, he will help her return to the village adorned with an animal skin.

A story about friendship, benevolence, animals and traditions...
