In Lakota mythology, Unhcegila is a dragonoid creature which was responsible for many unexplained disappearances and deaths. It is also related to the recently made up version of a Lakota Sioux Dragon named Unk Cekula Pronounced Unc-Check-Yula. This version was told to be a demon from the Eastern Nations who rose from the icy waters of the northern Atlantic and made his way to the prairie lands of the Lakota Sioux. He was slain after he ate the family of a great warrior from the bear clan. This warrior was told by a Weasel spirit that if he was to get swallowed by Unk Cekula he could use his knife to cut his way out of the belly of the beast and free the other victims.
