The plains region is a vast landscape which was home to many native nations. For hundreds of years, these peoples followed the giant, wandering herds of buffalo upon which they were dependent for food, clothing, tools, and shelter. Clear, informative text, beautiful illustrations, and maps, help describe all aspects of the life of native nations who called the plains their home. Children will learn about:
• cultural differences among nations from different regions of the plains
• a discussion of the differences between sedentary and nomadic peoples
• how the buffalo were hunted and used
• different types of homes
• the importance of family life
• the arrival of the European settlers and how it affected the life of native peoples
• the introduction of the horse and how it changed the way native people hunted and traveled
Teacher’s guide available.

This is a picture book that tells all about the Indians of the great plains. I used it as an introduction to a creative writing lesson. The students made a picture strory just like the Plains Indians did.
