The Dakota tell a story about a woman who undergoes a transformation not in body, but in another form that can only be perceived beyond sight.

Once upon a time, there was a young woman who did not care about marriage. Despite the courtship attempts of all the young men in the village, none managed to conquer her heart.

Finally, she met an exceptional man with whom she thought of marrying. However, she set a condition for the marriage: that he always treat her with kindness.

Unfortunately, shortly after the wedding, the man broke his promise by frequently criticizing and physically abusing her.

Fearing for her life, the young woman escaped from her home. The men of the village organized numerous searches, but they could not find her.

One day, the woman met a stranger who, unbeknownst to her, was not a man at all, but the leader of a pack of wolves.

Sure that this wolf would not hand her over to her husband, the woman asked him for food, as she was hungry. The wolf leader extended his hand and offered to take her to his camp.

When they arrived there, the woman found herself surrounded by wolves around a bonfire, realizing that the leader was not a man but a wolf.

He took her to a tent and asked her what she wanted to eat. The woman replied that she wanted buffalo meat.

The wolf leader instructed two of his wolves to look for buffalo meat. When they returned, the wolf asked the woman how she wanted the meat prepared, and she replied that it should be cooked.

Then, the wolf leader ordered a large package to be opened. The woman suspected that the contents had been stolen from humans. Inside the package, they found an iron pot and sharp knives.

The wolf asked the woman what should be done next, and she told him to cut the meat into pieces.

They gave her a knife, and the woman cut the meat. Then, she placed the meat in a pot of boiling water and, once cooked, prepared the meal for the entire pack of wolves.

The woman lived with the wolves for months, always taking care of preparing the meals.

One night, the wolf leader informed the woman that the members of her tribe were hunting buffaloes and that if they continued in that direction, they would reach the wolf camp by morning.

The woman had to run towards them and distract them to prevent them from killing the wolves if they found them.

The next day, the woman headed towards the hunters, but as she approached, she felt dizzy from the smell of humans.

One of the men recognized her, but she told them she had been living with the wolves and did not wish to return to the village. The men begged her to come back with them, but the woman remained silent.

Finally, she agreed on the condition that they continue hunting buffaloes and that, when they passed by again, they would give her the tongues and the best part of the meat. The men agreed.

When they returned, they brought her what she had asked for. The woman took the meat and spread it between two mountains.

Suddenly, the slopes were filled with hungry wolves that ran towards the meat.

The woman returned to the village and reconciled with her husband, knowing that from that moment on he would treat her with kindness, as she had lived among wild wolves.
