About this title:

Synopsis: Can history be fun? When kids follow Grace (a fifth grader) as she explores her Cheyenne history through interesting stories about people and events, fun activities, tasty recipes, old and new photographs, maps, interviews, and thoughtful questions, it is fun. This book looks at history from an American Indian perspective - a perspective that might be new to many today. It presents Intermediate teachers (grades 4-7), parents, and kids many ways to explore early history and todays challenges, and to learn about enduring Native traditions and values. Websites and Internet resources are featured along with sources for Native music and engaging fiction and non-fiction books. From ancient Indian cultures to todays Indian people who live on reservations and in the cities, lifeways and beliefs are presented with respect. Stereotypes of Indian warriors who whooped and massacred across the Plains are replaced with images of brave men and women who tried to save their families, values, traditions, and lands from the American invaders. The book emphasizes the strength of Indian families and their lives before Manifest Destiny (a policy that encouraged the takeover of the West), and highlights the modern survival and continuation of the people. Imagine Grace dancing at a Powwow today along with dancers from many Indian cultures. The spectators, the dancers, and the drums express their pride. History is being made each day by American Indian people. The lives, goals, and accomplishments of contemporary Indian people are reminders that our first Americans are still here. As todays warriors, they continue to tackle the issues that threaten their people and culture.
