Land of the Nakoda
An incredible collection of stories, legends, history, and lifestyles of the Assiniboine Indians of the Northern Plains. Absolutely authentic, it was written and lavishly illustrated by two Assiniboine tribal members in the 1930s and many of the stories came from interviews with tribal elders. The 120 illustrations include portraits, ceremonies, games, closthing, tools, war parties, weapons, and hunting methods. First published in 1942, this detailed, expansive book is another example of the extraordinary writing by the Federal Writers' Project.
