  9. Buffalo Bird

    BUFFALO BIRD WOMANS GARDEN

    As told by Gilbert L. Wilson. A book that is hard to put down - one of the most interesting we have read. In 1917, anthropologist Gilbert Wilson recorded the recollections of a year of gardening activities of Buffalo Bird woman, a Hidatsa Indian born in 1839 in North Dakota and raised in the tradition of sustainable agriculture. It is a fascinating account of how the women (they did all the agricultural work) broke ground with a digging stick and planted extensive crops of corn, squash, beans and sunflowers. Buffalo Bird Woman tells of seed varieites, harvesting, drying, saving seed and food preparation. She also recalls songs, stories and ritualistic ceremonies essential to a successful harvest. Captivating reading. Softcover 129pp Learn More
