Author: Ann McGovern

In question-and-answer style, the author describes the daily life of the Sioux before and after the coming of the white man. Boys and girls will be surprised to know that each child had a second mother and father who helped take care of him... that everyone had his own "medicine bundle" to keep danger away... that the men sometimes had more than one wife... that a boy was expected to hunt his first buffalo calf before he was ten years old.

They'll discover what happened to someone who broke the rules of a tribe, what was considered the bravest thing a Sioux Indian could do, and the ritual ceremonies at which children were accepted as adults.

In a final section the author explains what is happening to these Indians today.
