No other group in Northern America has been more romanticized and stereotyped than the Plains Indians-the Blackfoot, Plains Cree, Dakota, Kiowa and other tribes of the grasslands. These people did not separate their lives as we do today into categories such as work, play, religion, law and art. To them, every part of life and all forms of life made up a spiritual whole: a self-sufficient way of life attuned to nature.

This book, with its authenticated drawings, tells how the Plains Indians lived: how they hunted buffalo, and made their tepees, clothing and tools. It also explains their beliefs, ceremonies and feeling for family life.

Maria Campbell's books include Halfbreed (an autobiography), Little Badger and the Fire People, and Riel's People.

Douglas Tait also illustrated Sea and Cedar.

Shannon Twofeathers is a painter, singer and songwriter.
