Buffalo Bird Girl: A Hidatsa Story

S.D. Nelson

Categories: Foods & Nutrition , General Agriculture , History

Resource Description

This fascinating picture book biography tells the childhood story of Buffalo Bird Woman—a Hidatsa Indian born around 1839. Through her true story, readers learn what it was like to be part of this Native American community, which lived along the Missouri River in the Dakotas, a society that depended on agriculture for food and survival rather than hunting. This book leads well into discussions of agricultural practices used by Oregon tribes both historically and today.
