Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patrick Hunter
As a tribe of the larger group known as the Sioux, the Lakota may be most familiar for their form of dwelling, the tipi. Tipis were constructed in part from the most important animal to the Lakota, the Buffalo. Skins of the Buffalo were used for the tipi covering, leaving other parts of the animal for different uses: meat for eating, bones for creating tools, and sinew for creating string for sewing or bows and arrows. Tipis were set in a circle with a larger tipi set up for meetings and rules to create a camp. Lakota could form their own camp by moving the tipi outside the original camp circle if they did not like their original camps rules. Lakota women held possession of the tipi and were in charge of its care. As warriors Lakotas conducted raids for horses, revenge, or bravery. One of the bravest things that a Lakota warrior could do was counting coup—running up to an enemy in battle and touching them. Lakota had many warrior societies to join. Each had its own songs and dances. Today the Lakota's lives are more peaceful, centering around tourism, but they are still formidable warriors. For years the Lakota have been battling the United States government for a return of the Black Hills of the Dakotas, which the Lakota lost when greedy settlers and government took them after the discovery of precious metals in the Hills. The Lakota view the Hills as so sacred, they have even refused money from the government to settle the loss of the Black Hills. Author Burgan does an excellent job in fleshing out this group of Native Americans beyond their most familiar traits: tipis, buffalo hunting, etc. This extends to the book's artwork and photographs. We see more pictures of the Lakota'sdaily life—a Sioux camp, hunters at rest, harvesting wild rice—rather than the action shots or proud portraits of Native Americans that are seen time and again. The Lakota is a great book for those looking for something that could provide more background about one of the most familiar Native American groups. Part of the "First American" series.
