About this title


Tell Me, Grandmother is at once the biography of Goes-in-Lodge, a traditional Arapaho woman of the nineteenth century, and the autobiography of her descendant, Virginia Sutter, a modern Arapaho woman with a Ph.D. in public administration. Sutter adeptly weaves her own story with that of Goes-in-Lodge?who, in addition to being Sutter?s great-grandmother, was first wife of Sharpnose, the last reigning chief of the Northern Arapaho nation.

Told in a question-and-answer format between twenty-first-century granddaughter and matriarchal ancestor and, Sutter discusses four generations of home life, including child rearing, education, courtship, marriage, birthing, and burial. Goes-in-Lodge speaks of social and ceremonial gatherings, the Sun Dance, the sweat lodges, and the changes that took place on the Great Plains throughout her lifetime. Sutter?s portrait of Goes-in-Lodge is based on tribal history and interviews with tribal members. Sutter details her own life as a child born in a teepee to white and Indian parents and the discrimination and injustice she faced struggling to make her way in an increasingly Euro-American world.

About the Author:

Author, elder, and activist, Virginia Sutter is an enrolled member of the Northern Arapaho Indian Nation. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Oklahoma and is the CEO/Administrator for the Pit River Tribe in Northern California.
