Buffalo Bird Girl

Publisher: Abram Books

Buffalo Bird Girl lived in the 1800s and was one of the Hidatsa People, a Native American community. Here she describes in her own words how she lived and learned to be a Hidatsa woman, remembering the farming work that accompanied each season, her domestic duties, fun and games and visits to the trading post.

In spite of attacks from other tribes and the diseases brought by white men, Buffalo Bird lived a long life. In 1910 she was photographed, living on a reservation and recalling the Indian ways that seemed to have gone forever.

Beautiful, evocative illustrations complement this moving and vibrant picture book which is ideal for helping young readers to learn about Native American life.
