White Buffalo Woman
By: Christine Crowl
The Sioux Indians were perhaps the largest of all nations that lived on the plains. They called themselves Ikche-Wichasha, which meant 'The Real Natural Human Beings'. Their great nation was divided into seven different tribes; the Hunkpapa, the Oglala, the Minneconjou, the Brules, the Ooenunpa, the Itazipicho and the Sihasapa.
Like all people living on the Plains, they depended on the buffalo for food, shelter, clothing and tools. They spent a great deal of their lives following the migrating buffalo herds as their survival depended on them.
The pipe was an important religious symbol among the tribes. It was a moveable altar which was used in prayer and ceremony. It was the most cherished thing a man could own. The legend of White Buffalo Woman and the pipe originated with the Brule Sioux and is a story that has been handed down through the centuries.
This is a retelling of that story for young children; of a proud people and their way of life.
