Buffalo Days is a colourful photo-essay about one 10-year-old Crow boy's family and their cultural traditions. Clarence Three Irons, Jr. and his family live on the Crow Reservation along the Little Bighorn River in southern Montana. Nicknamed Indian, Clarence and his brothers and parents participate in Crow cultural traditions. The text explores Crow history, contemporary lifestyle, and most importantly, the importance of the buffalo to this Plains Nation. The significance of the buffalo herds of the past and the coming of the horse to this Nation in the early 1700s are outlined. In addition to food, the buffalo provided the Crow Nation with clothing, shelter, storage containers, utensils and tools. In fact, every part of the buffalo was utilized by the grateful people. Unfortunately life on the Plains took a drastic change with the settlement of the area by European settlers. In just over 100 years the millions of buffalo were driven to extinction by needless slaughter brought on by Americans. Forced by the U.S. government to take small reservations, the Native Americans were reduced to poverty and starvation. Despite this, the Nations have survived and today things are changing for many Plains Nations, including the Crow Nation. A cooperative organization of reservations has joined to assist in the comeback of the buffalo herds. On the Crow Reservation this started in 1930 and today Clarence's father is the buffalo manager for the community. Seen through Clarence's eyes the text and photographs describe the modern and traditional ways the Crow People maintain their growing herd. Each fall a buffalo roundup is held to assess the herd and inoculate new calves against diseases introduced by domestic cattle. Clarence participates and helps his father during this time. One way the people of the Crow Reservation celebrate the buffalo days of the past and present is during the annual Crow Fair and Rodeo. A large tipi village is set up and Native Americans and First Nations attend and participate in the annual powwow. The book and images shows the steps involved in setting up a tipi, and the daily parade of traditionally dressed participants. Two pages show the powwow event as everyone takes part including children. The different regalia styles are briefly described. Throughout the book the warmth, caring, and hard work of this family are shown in the images and text. A glossary, maps, and index are included in this excellent resource for elementary students who want to learn about the Crow Nation and the importance of the buffalo through the eyes of a Crow child.
