    1. An elegantly written piece that tells of Buffalo Bird Girl, Waheenee-nea, one of the last Hidatsa people to live the traditional way. It begins by informing us how Buffalo Bird Girl has lost many family members, including her mother and brother, to the small pox epidemic; therefore, her grandmother and aunts took her in and loved her like they were her own mother. The story then progresses forward to show all of the traditional ways of the Hidatsa, such as: collecting and preserving food, moving [...]

    2. The acrylic paint illustrations and the drawings made with black colored pencil for this book are really quite special, filled with tints and tones that celebrate the vibrancy of the Hidatsa people who once lived on the Great Plains. Relying on the childhood experiences of Buffalo Bird Girl, who was born in the 1830s and who told her stories to anthropologist Gilbert Wilson who recorded them, thus preserving vestiges of the traditional life Buffalo Bird Girl had lived, the author/illustrator des [...]

    3. Text-to-Teaching Connection 12/06/2016In this book you learn about living during the 1800's as a Native American. I would have pictures of Native American symbols. I would have the definition of each symbol. Students would choose their favorite symbol to write a journal entry to what this mean to Native American culture and what they like about this symbol.

    4. Genre: Biography, Juvenile NonfictionStory written and illustrated by S.D. Nelson (Standing Rock Sioux Tribe).Buffalo Bird Girl, Waheenee, was one of the last Hidsata girl to live in the "old ways." The beginning of the book talked about how Waheenee lost most of her family members to the deadly smallpox disease, and therefore, she was raised by her grandmother. As the story continues, the book talked about the traditional Hidsata way of living (through a Native girl's point of view). Some of th [...]

    5. In this story we follow the Buffalo Bird Girl named Waheenee-nea, who is one of the last Hidatsa people to live off the land. In the story we find out that most of her family has died due to a chicken pox out break and that she is raised by her aunt and grandmother. In this story we learn about how the Hidatsa people survive by living off the land however the problem comes when the white people try to move them to a reservation. The illustrations in the story are oil painting and give it a real [...]

    6. 2012. Biography 5. Good during this time period in history, read aloud, or during a Native American Month or a women of history unit. Is about Buffalo Bird Girl written to seem as if it's by her. Very engaging and not many Native American stories of notable women available. There is a timeline is the back.

    7. Detailed information about the life of Buffalo Bird Girl when she was young (in the 1800s). Shows the life of a Plains Indian who lived in a village all but during the winter months (so, not nomadic).Based on information from Buffalo Bird Woman when she was grown.

    8. We have been reading through this one over the course of a few weeks. It was a great introduction for my six year old, to the lifestyle of certain Native American tribes.

    9. Waheenee-wea, or Buffalo Bird Woman, was one of the last of the Hidatsa people to live in the traditional way that they had lived for many generations. Waheenee grew up in an earth-mound lodge with eleven other family members on the Missouri River (in what is now North Dakota). As a child, she helped with tasks like farming, tanning hides, and gathering firewood. For fun, she would play with dolls or play games like kickball or hide-toss. Although there were dangers from neighboring tribes or il [...]

    10. Have you ever wondered what life might have been like for Native Americans long ago? Buffalo Bird Girl is a peek into the life of a member of the Hidatsa tribe as they go throughout a year. You get a look inside their earth mound huts, which would house large families - 12 members of Buffalo Bird Girl’s family lived in one hut! Girls and women planted vegetables and farmed while boys and men went out to hunt for meat. Everyone helped clean the animal skins when the men brought back game. Other [...]

    11. This book was richly illustrated using a combination of paintings, black-and-white illustrations, and current and vintage photographs. The actual life of Waheenee is very interesting, and various aspects of it, from childhood games and songs to raids and celebrations, are told with detail. Even things that are sad, such as the smallpox devastation and the removal to the reservation, are handled in terms children can understand. The end notes are truly extensive, giving a timeline, more backgroun [...]

The story goes through the life of the Hidatsa, how they cooked their food, planted and harvested crops, lived in lodges, stored food in underground [...]

    13. Native author S.D. Nelson tells the story of Buffalo Bird Girl, an Hidatsa Indian during the late 19th century. Telling the tale from her point of view, Nelson paints a picture of American Indian life as the white man was beginning to take over. But during the story most contact with white people is through trading and is mostly positive. By the end of the book the Hidatsa tribe has been moved onto reservation land. Buffalo Bird Woman often thinks of the old ways and still communes with the eart [...]

    14. It is hard to find an authentic account of Native American experience suitable for middle grade classroom use. This beautifully illustrated, extensive, picture book tells the story of Buffalo Bird Girl, a member of the Hidatsa from her early childhood in the 1830's through the 1900's. Exposure to smallpox, trade with whites, relationships with other native nations and the tasks and pleasures of day to day existence are included. In the 1930's the Mandan and the Arikara the Hidatsa are moved to a [...]

    15. Really gorgeous paintings, interspersed with photographs, of life on the Plains for the Hidatsa and Mandan Indians of history. Told in first person ( but fictionalized), info taken from research and Buffalo Bird Woman's two books, but with some creative license. Includes quotes from her. Tells story of her daily life as a child, referencing the hunting and farming lifestyle of the Hidatsa in general. Author's Note adds postscript of her later life, how they had to leave and go to a reservation; [...]

    16. I wonder if kids will want to read. Intended to offer them a way into a vanished way of life. Interesting bio with lots of pictures, drawn and photographs. I did wonder about the different colors the artist used painting the people - some are blue, or red, or yellow or brown-skinned. As an artistic technique it's interesting but when a character in the story is described as being painted, and he's less garish a color than some of the other unnamed characters, it raises questions in this literal- [...]

    17. Buffal Bird Girl shares her history and her way of life. Nelson crafts Buffalo Bird Girl's story from her original books written in the early 1900's.Themes: history, memories, Native American lifestyleCharacters: Buffalo Bird Girl/Buffalo Bird Woman, the Hadatsa peopleArtwork: paintings in acrylic on gessoed Masonite, drawings with black colored pencils on 140 lbs cold-press 100% cotton acid-free paperAuthor's Note: Author's story, Buffalo Bird Girl story, Hidatsa story, Hidatsa timeline, notes [...]

    18. Told in first person, based on the oral history of an elderly Hidatsa woman recorded in 1906, this book shares some of her experiences as a child living in a traditional Indian village in the Great Plains. There are three full pages of author's notes at the end, plus a timeline, for readers who want to know more. Illustrations include line drawings, four-color pencil drawings, and photographs. Great introduction to another culture.

    19. A picture book biography about Buffalo Bird Girl, a Hidatsa Indian, born in the 1830s. The book describes her daily chores and the ways of life handed down from generation to generation in her tribe. Photographs are combined with acrylic paintings to illustrate the story. An author's note, select timeline, and bibliography follow the story.A great book to add to a unit of study on Native American life.

    20. " My name is Buffalo Bird Woman, Waheenee, and my people are known as the Hidatsa" p.3I appreciate the voice that is not third person view point this way somehow the narrative creates certain interesting vibe around the calm attitudes and voices that seem to engage more with fictional voices Beautiful illustrations with powerful black and white photos work great to support such voice of WaheeneeDefinately unique perspective sharing one's girlhood!

    21. An excellent book, skillfully mixing beautiful illustration with informative photographs, and engaging text. So many books about Native Americans seem filled with browns and tans, and therefore seem drab, this injects wonderful color and life into the story. The back matter is interesting too, and lets the reader know that the book is well researched and correct.

    22. I really liked the illustrations and I thought the earth-mound lodges were really cool. Although there were lots of words, my little boys were able to maintain their attention and enjoy the book. It tells about the culture of Hidatsa and other native Americans in the early 1800's. We all loved it, I especially enjoyed it and found so much interesting information.

    23. Gorgeous illustrations! Historical photos along with the rainbow of pictures. Simple moving text that flows like a song. I learned so much, but it didn't feel like I was learning--just following a friend on a journey or reading a very moving diary. For every strong girl out there, this is a must read.

    24. I picked this up to check out the style. I am working towards writing a historical fiction about a young Native American girl and I wanted to get some ideas of how other authors have presented their information. This was really a non-fiction book and a little different than what I want to do. But in a lot of ways it was very helpful. I really liked the illustrations and genuine photos.

    25. The interweaving of Buffalo Bird Girl's words with archival material and acrylic paintings results in a magnificent memoir of this Hidatsa woman. Author's notes, bibliography, and index make this a top notch choice for Native American studies.

    26. Very interesting look at the Plains Indians history through the accounts of Buffalo Bird Girl. Photographs, illustrations and some of her own words are used to recount her life as a Hidatsa child. Author's note and other back matter provide context for the gathering of story material.

    27. This beautiful picture book is a fun story to read. It gives the history and the culture information on the Native Americans in the nineteenth century. This story is interesting for children as well as adults.Chris
