Read & Download ¶ Indian Boyhood 109 Charles Eastman or Hakadah as his Sioux relatives and fellow tribesmen knew him as a full blooded Indian boy learned the reticent manners and stoical ways of patience and bravery expected of every young warrior in the 1870's and 1880's The hunts games and ceremonies of his native tribe were all he knew of life until his father who had spent time with the white man came to find him Indian Boyhood is Eastman's first hand reminiscence of the life he led until he was fifteen with the nomadic Sioux Left motherless at birth he tells how his grandmother saved him from relatives who offered to care for him until he died It was that grandmother who sang him the traditional Indian lullabies which are meant to cultivate braver. This is a first hand experience story written many years ago by a Sioux Indian Ohiyesa Charles Alexander Eastman his white man s world name recounting his boyhood as he was raised in the traditional Sioux Indian way It is fascinating to learn how this child grew thoroughly immersed in the Indian world and then went on into adulthood and assimilated into the white man s world as a highly educated doctor and published authorOriginally published in 1902 by Charles Eastman recounting his traditional Dakota Sioux childhood Mr Eastman lived 1859 to 1939 so he was intrinsically involvedIndian Boyhood is the story of a disappearing culture even during this recounted childhood and it is wonderful to see that today s publishers and editors see the value in a resurgence of this man s story and are adapting and publishing it for today s children to read and learn about original AmericansWhile the book doesn t have much girl appeal it is certainly a valuable source of information for any child Targeted for age four and up the text flows easily and simply states in a very simple form what transpires as the boy grows until he leaves with his re discovered father for the white man s world The illustrations are very well done and capture the essence of the Indian life the story details I like that the book opens with pictures of the author in traditional Indian clothes as well as his white man s world clothes At the end of the book there is a list of explanations that helps to understand the illustrationsA very good book for simply learning about the young Indian boy s life A must for school libraries DISCLOSURE I received a complimentary copy from Wisdom Tales to facilitate this review Opinions are my own I was not compensated for this review

Read & Download ¶ Indian Boyhood 109 Y in all male babies who taught him not to cry at night for fear of revealing the whereabouts of the Sioux camp to hostile tribes and who first explained to him some of the skills he would need to survive as an adult in the wilds Eastman remembers the uncle who taught him the skills of the hunt and the war path and how his day began at first light when his uncle would startle him from sleep with a terrifying whoop in response to which the young boy was expected to jump fully alert to his feet and rush outside bow in hand returning the yell that had just awakened him Yet all Indian life did not consist in training and discipline In time of abundance and even in famine Indian children had much time for sport and games. Genre Biography Autobiography Juvenile LiteratureWritten by Charles Eastman aka Ohiyesa Santee Dakota adapted by Michael Oren Fitzgerald member of Crow tribe and illustrated by Heidi M RaschThis book entails a simple story about what it s like to live the Indian boyhood life The story are recollections of Eastman s earliest childhood memories and it gave insight to the traditions and customs of Indian boyhood Some of these topics included how the Indian boy should be prince of the wilderness a great listener and a good hunter Towards the end of the book there was a sad and nostalgic feeling presented by the book as the boy grew into adulthood left his tribe and went on to the civilization I love this book simply because it was a very easy and relaxing read The illustrations were crisp and colorful and it presented the characters authentic to the time period The language used was age appropriate and easy to understand I think that this would be a great read aloud because there are many Native cultural characteristics presented within the book and from the characters It also gave a Native s perspectives on what it feels like to miss the traditional life that you have had before I feel that the readers will be able to take this and reflect on the importance of Native American history as well as being able to empathize with someone who might experience a similar situation
