    A classic ethnographic text by a renown author . Much of what is written was told to the author by the Cheyenne during the late 1800s and very early 1900s and many of them are cited. The text is dry reading, but more Interesting for me than most modern day academic writing on the subject. I was surprised that the Cheyenne did not move out onto the Great Plains until perhaps the very early 1800s. I was also surprised at how early the Pawnee acquired horses. I think it was cited in the book as bei A classic ethnographic text by a renown author .

I think it was cited in the book as being the late 1600s. The Cheyenne were relatively quickly forced to completely change their lifestyle from agricultural people living in permanent housing to hunter gatherers using Teepees. I highly recommend this text to anyone interested in learning about the Cheyenne during these times.

    A very fascinating history of the Cheyenne Nation told orally to the writer over a period of years from the late 1800's to 1920. This history was for the most part from 1600 to 1920 and covered a wide range of topics from the movement of the tribe from the Wisconsin area to the Plains and the split of the nation to Northern Cheyenne and Southern Cheyenne. Covered in the book were many topics such as home life and how the housing went from lodge to teepee, governance, wars with other tribal natio A very fascinating history of the Cheyenne Nation told orally to the writer over a period of years from the late 1800's to 1920.

Covered in the book were many topics such as home life and how the housing went from lodge to teepee, governance, wars with other tribal nations, sports and entertainment (including music, dances and singing), food, and many more. A great deal of respect was shown to the many leaders and their genealogies.

    Very interesting to read about the Cheyenne culture, but I'd highly recommend reading the abridged version because there are quite a few spots that were dry.
