Product Overview

Publisher: C. Scribner''s Sons Publication date: 1915 Description: Frank B. Linderman kept as close as possible to the Indian style of storytelling, using only the tales told him by elders of the Blackfeet, Chippewa, and Cree tribes. Indian Why Stories, originally published in 1915, recreates a cozy scene: a medicine man sits before a lodge fire relating tales of the old days to grandchildren not ready for bed. These stories have a moral framework, revealing a reverence for life, emphasis on honesty, and lack of bigotry. Subjects: Siksika Indians Ojibwa Indians Cree Indians Indians of North America Tales Indian mythology Folk-lore, Indian Chippewa Indians Social Science / Ethnic Studies / Native American Studies Fiction / Short Stories Fiction / Fairy Tales, Folklore
