THE great Northwest--that wonderful fron- tier that called to itself a world's hardiest spirits--is rapidly becoming a settled country; and before the light of civilizing influences, the... More > blanket-Indian has trailed the buffalo over the divide that time has set between the pioneer and the crowd. With his passing we have lost much of the aboriginal folk-lore, rich in its fairy-like characters, and its relation to the lives of a most warlike people. There is a wide difference between folk-lore of the so-called Old World and that of America. Transmitted orally through countless genera- tions, the folk-stories of our ancestors show many evidences of distortion and of change in material particulars; but the Indian seems to have been too fond of nature and too proud of tradition to have forgotten or changed the teachings of his forefathers.< Less

Under an open sky, nestling close to the earth, the old Dakota story-tellers have told me these legends.

And now I have tried to transplant the native spirit of these tales -- root and all -- into the English language, since America in the last few centuries has acquired a second tongue.< Less

More > struggle continues to this day. Indian Residential Schools were a part of that struggle for over 100 years, and since the late 1980s many people have told their stories of life at one or another of those schools.
