Description
 
After retelling the tribeís creation myths, Sneve explains how the Cheyennes were formed from two smaller tribes, and follows their migration west to the Great Plains. Describes the tribeís structure, history, social life, arts and crafts, and ceremonies. After moving west, the Cheyennes adapted the Plains Indians way of life, hunting buffaloes and living in teepees. When white settlers entered their territory during the 1800s, the tribeís way of life changed dramatically. From 1825 through the 1865 massacre at Sand Creek, and the establishment of the reservations, relations with the U.S. govít. were hostile. Yet the Cheyennes persevered, retaining their culture and identity against overwhelming odds. Full-color illustrations. Reinforced binding.
