Artist's Description

Minnehaha, the daughter of a Blackfoot tribe hunter, said to the buffalo herd, “Oh, if you would only come over the cliff, I would marry one of you.”

She was surprised that they responded and tumbled over the cliff to provide food for her people. But she was carried away by the elder buffalo to be his bride.

Her father searched for her and was stampeded to death. Minnehaha cried and asked the magpie to find a piece of her father’s bones. The magpie found one, and Minnehaha chanted a song that brought her father to life.

The buffalo chief said, “If you teach that song of restoration to us, we’ll sacrifice ourselves to feed your people.” Then they taught her their sacred Buffalo Dance.

— Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth (1988), pp. 75-78
