"I Saw All That": A Lakota Girl's Puberty Ceremony.
Bol, Marsha C.; Menard, Nellie Z. Star Boy
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v24 n1 p25-42 2000
Draws on the memoirs of Nellie Menard, Lakota archives, and other published materials to describe the traditional puberty ceremonies held for Lakota girls. Discusses the practice of seclusion, during which an elderly woman instructed the girl in appropriate behavior and women's crafts; the initiate's new social status; the ball-throwing ceremony; and the giveaway and feast.
