    1 thought on “Indian Boyhood: The True Story of a Sioux Upbringing

    1. The reason I enjoy reading Ohiyesa s books so much is his unique perspective, one that came from living in two different worlds, native and mainstream American This book traces his life in the first world, growing up in a Sioux camp.Most of his account is set in Canada where he went into exile after being separated from his father and siblings following the 1862 Dakota War Before Indian Boyhood, I read Old Indian Days and my favourite story in that book was based on this event it was interesting [...]

    3. This is a first hand experience story written many years ago by a Sioux Indian, Ohiyesa Charles Alexander Eastman, his white man s world name recounting his boyhood as he was raised in the traditional Sioux Indian way It is fascinating to learn how this child grew thoroughly immersed in the Indian world and then went on into adulthood and assimilated into the white man s world as a highly educated doctor and published author.Originally published in 1902 by Charles Eastman recounting his traditio [...]

    4. The book starts off well with an interesting foreword by Charles Trimble, a registered Oglala Lakota, that identifies the specific nation that Ohiyesa Eastman was part of In the foreword he presents the historical context and sets the scene for the book and while not graphic, he is unflinching in how he presents the events that shaped Ohiyesa Eastman s life In the so called Indian Uprising of 1862 the Dakota people rebelled against white incursions onto their lands and the government s withholdi [...]

    5. In 1902, Charles Eastman, or Ohiyessa, wrote an account, Indian Boyhood of his Dakota Sioux childhood Eastman 1858 1939 lived a remarkable life in two cultures Up to the age of 15, he was raised in the Sioux culture he described in Indian Boyhood Eastman went on to graduate from Dartmouth College and from the medical school of Boston College He had a career as a physician, worked as a field secretary for the YMCA, helped found the Boy Scouts, and wrote eleven books beginning with Indian Boyhood [...]

    6. Bracketed with background information about the author, illustrator, and supporters of this book, Indian Boyhood presents a very simply told story for young children, filled with tiny details of text and illustration that imply a much larger tale The writing is smoothly edited from Charles Eastman s original text by Michael Oren Fitzgerald, combining the sense of a children s picture book with the depth of genuine cultural difference and experience a difference born of time, location and history [...]

    7. I had to read this book for my Native American literature course The culture of the indigenous people is extremely different from ours It was amazing to read about some of the experiences Ohiyesa had during his time with his tribe Talking about the rite of passage into becoming a warrior was so interesting because it polarizes strongly with what I have to do today to be considered an adult It s also similar in some ways Ohiyesa must make an emotional sacrifice and be disciplined to be considered [...]

    8. Indian Boyhood is a picture book for ages 4 and up and it s an edited version of Charles Eastman s autobiography about his Dakota Sioux upbringing Charles Eastman, or Ohiyesa, lived from 1858 1939 and wrote eleven books from 1902 1918 This book tells how he was raised by a grandmother due to losing his parents while very young and how they were forced off their land, but also about his wild animal pets, hunting, and learning to be a warrior.The illustrations complement the text by showing detail [...]

    9. Charles Eastman was a complicated man I had never heard of him until my son and I visited the Baaken Museum on the banks of Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis I wandered outside of the museum, as Jackson built an electrical circuit, and read the placards placed at regular intervals on the terrace Looking out over restored wetlands on the museum property connected to the lake by a snaking track of road, I learned that Mr Eastman had lived near the lake as a child and later wrote a book about his early l [...]

    10. I really loved this book Charles Eastman Ohiyesa was a Woodland Sioux who was raised in the traditional way until the age of 15 This is his account of those years There are chapters about his grandmother, hunting, sugar collecting, games, legends, evenings around the fire, and just life in the woods in general It was originally written for children so it isn t stuffy or boring, but it isn t too simplistic either It was a very interesting and pleasant read It took me to another time and culture I [...]

    11. Written in 1902 and still in print I believe, though my copy is from 1930 Very readable possibly originally juvenile nonfiction Recommended for people who want to know what the young American Indian contemporaries of Laura Ingalls Wilder were doing while she was in the prairies Lots of detail about Sioux daily living, games, food, contests, rituals, courting and governing The author lived the wild life into his teens, when his life changed forever and he joined civilization I will be looking for [...]

    12. This is a true story about a boy named Ohiyesa When he was older, he was called Charles Eastman, and he wrote about when he was a boy in Indian Boyhood The True Story of a Sioux Upbringing This book was written by Michael Oren Fitzgerald who used a lot of the words that Ohiyesa used when he was writing his book read You can read this entire review at San Diego Book Review

    13. I received this book as a First Read It s a good adaptation of Eastman s original book and a good intro to Eastman s boyhood life It s also a good intro for young readers to Native American history The illustrations are detailed and have a great folk quality to them This book will inspire young readers as well as older readers to learn about both Eastman s life and Native American history.

    14. I received my copy via giveaways A beautifully illustrated adaptation from the original, The true story of a Sioux upbringing is a short, sweet, charming tale of a boy s youth to age 15 as a northern prairie dwelling native American Heidi Rasch is to be complimented for this edition s appropriate, helpful, enjoyable artwork.

    15. A firsthand account of Santee Dakota life in the mid 19th century Well written possibly with the assistance of Ruth Alexander, a university English professor , descriptive, and interesting.
