The wild horse Mistatim, center of the Red Sky Performance drama of that name, brings about understanding between a daughter of the reservation and a rancher’s son and inspires neighbors to learn to respect the rights of the formerly oppressed. The themes of reconciliation and cultural survival can be found throughout this issue.
