Book Description Thomas Y. Crowell Company, New York, 1977. Hard Back. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Printing. 238 Pages Indexed. Tan boards with tan quarter-spine with red spine lettering. No defects to book noted. Dust jacket has a corner crease and 3/8 inch tear and some light edge and corner wear. Jacket price 12.95 is unclipped. This book is about a rare person. Mary Little Bear Inkanish, a southern Cheyenne craftswoman, a beadworker, was properly famous for her skills and for keeping her people's art alive through her own work and for teaching others the all-but-forgotten techniques of the past. In other respects, she lived an ordinary life, the kind that history books usually pass by. Yet to say this is merely to suggest the weakness of history as it is usually written, for, in a profound sense, Mary Inkanish's life was truly extraordinary. She was born about 1875 in a tipi on the old Darlington Agency, then Indian territory, now Oklahoma. Her father was a white trader named Block, while her mother was Little Bear Woman or Sacred Woman, who had won great honor by serving in the Sun Dance, most important of the tribe's annual ceremonies. She attended the Colony School, run by John Seger, an exceptional employee of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and she married one of her fellow students, James Inkanish. They had six children, they bought a house in Anadarko at a time when not many Indians owned houses in town, and she learned to drive a car. She became a superb craftswoman. There were good times, and tragic times: Six children lived to adulthood; one, the last, the best-loved, died in her early twenties. An ordinary life, but also an extraordinary one, for Mary Inkanish bridged two cultures, Indian and white, old and new, making hers a uniquely American story. As Mary Inkanish became older, she became more Indian, talking more in Cheyenne, and spending more of her time remembering the old days and ways. It was the good fortune of the authors, Alice Marriott and Carol K. Rachlin, to be with her during much of this remembering period. Size: 6 1/4" X 9 1/4". Seller Inventory # 13235
