Cheyenne-Arapaho Education, 1871-1982 is Henriett Mann's powerful and moving account of the educational experiences of the two tribes during this long and painful period. A drama of human dimensions about individuals, families, tribes, and the federal government, Cheyenne-Arapaho Education is based upon the oral histories of several generations of the tribes, most notably Mann's own recollections as well as those of her great grandmother, White Buffalo Woman, a Cheyenne born in 1852. Together these voices document the constant changes, frustrations, and Arapho people by government policies. Presenting history and life experiences from the Cheyennes and Araphoes that cannot be found in documents, this volume also chronicles success in cultural continuity as told by the tribal members themselves. It is a moving tribute to the spirit and endurance of the Cheyenne and Arapaho peoples, as well as a powerful condemnation of government policies.
