The sun sets on the plains of Monument Valley, illuminating the dusty purple sky with a pinkish hue. Two unlikely companions tread a narrow path – Leo the lion and Siniret, the donkey. Leo is regal and majestic and Siniret is stubborn but wise. Together, they wander the isolated desert region in search of hidden secrets.
Suddenly, a rustling in the tall grass interrupts their search. Leo looks around, expecting to see a coyote or a rabbit, instead, he sees a foreigner astride a huge white stallion. The man is wearing a traditional Navaho Outfit and has an unusually large feathered headdress on his head.
The wild-eyed rider offers them a warm welcome and an invitation to the annual Navaho festival. Of course, Leo and Siniret happily accept the invitation. But, before the Navaho man shows them the path to the festival grounds, he lures them first to an old trading post in the middle of the desert.
The trading post is filled with strange and magical wares, and all manner of mystical items. They get lost exploring the wonders of the trading post when, suddenly, a large pack of wild horses run past them and out the door.
Fearing the horses might trample all the goods in the trading post, Leo lept into action. He ran after the horses and managed to round them up with help from Siniret. The Navaho man was so impressed, he rewarded them both with a gift – a magic wand.
Leo and Siniret quickly set out for the festival, the wand their newfound companion. As they journeyed together, they roleplayed a silly Navaho story – Leo, the brave lion, and Siniret, the wily donkey – who fought a never-ending battle against the forces of evil.
The Navaho Festival was a sight like no other. The flames of a massive fire burned brightly in the center of the gathering. The smell of authentic Navaho food filled the air. Traditional Native American dance ceremony was performed and Leo and Siniret were welcomed with open arms.
From that day forward Leo and Siniret were known as the remarkable duo who'd rescued a pack of wild horses and used a magic wand to save the day. They were celebrated amongst the Navaho people and esteemed by all – including the mysterious Navaho rider who'd brought them there in the first place.
