Blackfeet Indian Stories by George Grinnell



By: George B. Grinnell. The Blackfeet were hunters, travelling from place to place on foot. Dogs, their only tame animals, were used as beasts of burden to carry small packs and drag light loads. The stories here told come down to us from very ancient times. Grandfathers have told them to their grandchildren, and these again to their grandchildren, and so from mouth to mouth, through many generations, they have reached our time.

Blackfeet Indian Stories is an enjoyable collection (~120 pages) of short stories and folklore from and about the Blackfeet tribe. At the end of the book, the author has included a short history and description of early Blackfeet tribal customs. This book contains the stories of the Blackfeet people, as retold by George Grinnell. Grinnell was a leader in the creation of Glacier National Park and wrote prolifically about Blackfeet culture I'm interested in learning more. What comes through in the stories, beyond the creation stories, is the specific morality encoded in the stories. I found them fascinated. One also glimpses the nuances of Blackfeet culture and societal structure.

Only 7 left in stock (more on the way). He was an astute and honest chronicler of Indian life and ways. This book is a collection of Blackfeet stories; some of religious/moral nature, some more of ethnic description and some merely fun stories that were told chiefly for entertainment.

Grandfathers have told these stories to their grandchildren for generations. Here, one of the most famous ethnographers of the late 19th century has written them down and published his collection. The cover displays the N.C. Wyeth painting Spring.

An interesting collection of Blackfeet Indian legends of creation, tradition, and fire-side stories told on a rainy night to amuse the children. The stories were collected by the author George Bird Grinnel (1849-1938) who was an American anthropologist, historian, naturalist and writer (wiki). He was an early conservationist (American bison) and student of Native American life. He explored extensively in the American plains and had opportunity to come in contact with the native Indians. Many stories display a belief in animism. The stories show the cultural relation between men and women, tribal hierarchy, Indian hunting technology, living conditions. The last chapter, The Ancient Blackfeet, gives a good account of Indian life.
Still In Mind
Simple but well written versions of the stories-- sometimes books like this read awkwardly, like poor translations, and other times they seem like the transcriber put too much of themselves into the stories-- Grinnell seems to have hit a good balance. Although I can't say what a member of one of the Blackfoot nations would think of the book.

This was a very approachable volume of stories from the Blackfeet Indians. The final 'story' was just facts about the life and traditions of the Blackfeet, but even that was interesting.

I also found the entire book to be almost devoid of the sort of European-biased language that I often find in books of traditional tales, which is fantastic.

The audience of this book is probably adults, or maybe older teens, but it clearly wasn't written for children, though some of the stories could probably be read to some children who like violence and polygamy.

There was one downside to the kindle edition, which is that some of the names must have had special characters that didn't scan correctly, and thus the names were written as "i-s+n?-o-kM-k+" or "Kmt-o-y-s?" which, honestly, are rather unpronounceable.

“Blackfeet Indian Stories” by George Bird Grinnell

Grinnell was one of the most famous and active early conservationists. As well, he was a passionate student of the indigenous tribes, especially in the West. He was an astute and honest chronicler of Indian life and ways.
This book is a collection of Blackfeet stories; some of religious/moral nature, some more of ethnic description and some merely “fun” stories that were told chiefly for entertainment.
It is a fun read and brings a more human look at the tribe with it.
