The Book of the Pageant of Yankton free pdf Excerpt from The Book of the Pageant of Yankton The Pageant of Yankton You-i-a-san. Yet weary marches brought but troubled daysFar to the South. The warlike Ioways, Seeing we sought their prairies, stood like menAnd fought as fights the grizzly for its den.No peace was there. So, turning to the West, Still on the Yankton's toilsome march has pressedInto these regions distant and unknown, Our Teton kinsmen gave us for our own. Wakon-o-big-nan. But not its prairies, where the bison passLike shadows down the hills of waving grass, Nor yet its valley, whose still waters flowBeneath the willows, sinuous and slow, Showed us a spot our tribe might call its homeWhile all the varying seasons go and come.Yet now, at last, when seemed our search in vain, Here, at the very end of that great plainWhence winds the hushed Pewakpa, like a brideTo meet the brown Missouri's rushing tide, -Here is the place we dreamed! You-i-a-san. These grassy valesWill feed vast pony herds. Wild winter's galesMay howl unheeded on the camps that lieBeneath these tree-trunks, towering toward the sky.Beyond the bluffs, whose strong, encircling armsHold, like a lover, all the valley's charms, The bison graze in myriads. At its feetWhirl the Missouri's waters, wide and fleet.Truly, Wakon-o-big-nan, till we treadThe Happy Hunting Grounds of warrior dead, No fairer spot our eyes shall see. The trackRuns out and ceases. Let us hasten backAnd tell our people here is joyful endOf all the Yankton's toils. Wakon-o-big-nan. But first, my friend, To Wakontonka give we thanks. This trailHe set our feet upon. Nor must we failTo speak the Manitou whose spirit broodsAmong these forest-templed solitudes.(The two warriors raise their arms and faces and address the Deity.)
