Easy-to-read text and colorful illustrations and photos teach readers about Arapaho history, traditions, and modern life. This book describes society and family structure, hunting and gathering methods, and ceremonies and rituals. Readers will learn about Arapaho clothing, as well as crafts such as quillwork and beadwork. A traditional myth is included, as is a description of famous Arapaho leader Niwot. Wars, weapons, and contact with Europeans are discussed. Topics including European influence, assimilation, reservations, and federal recognition are also addressed. In addition, modern Arapaho culture and still-celebrated traditions such as the sun dance ceremony are introduced. Arapaho homelands are illustrated with a detailed map of the United States, and a step-by-step illustration of tepee construction shows readers how the Arapaho built their homes.
