Sik-ki-mi. Indian Culture Series: Stories of the Blackfeet.
Roop, Peter
The children's story is one of a series about the Blackfeet Tribe at the height of its power in Southern Alberta and North Central Montana. In the story, Eagle Head, a Blackfeet boy, proves his bravery as he faces the first steamboat on the Yellowstone River and recaptures his chief's favorite buffalo horse, Sik-ki-mi, in a raid on a Crow camp. His courage wins him the right to ride the horse in races against the Atsinas. The story is illustrated throughout with full-page black and white drawings. (SB)
