Presenting American Indian legends, this material provides insight into the cultural background of the Dakota, Ojibwa, and Winnebago people. Written in a straightforward manner, each of the eight legends is associated with an Indian group. The legends included here are titled as follows: Minnesota is Minabozho's Land (Ojibwa); How We Got the Rainbow (an extension of the Ojibwa Minabozho legend); How the Birds Came to Have Their Many Colors (no tribal designation); The Story of Coyote and Moradjawinga (Earth Wanderer--a Winnebago legend); The Four Winds (Sioux); The Great Circle (Dakota); Legends of the Pipestone Quarry: The Three Maidens and The Dakota Buffalo Maiden Story (both Dakota). Each of the narratives includes complementary illustrations. A five-item bibliography is also included. (JC)
