    My "book by a person of color" for the 2017 PopSugar Reading Challenge. This is a slow read because it's more a collection of anecdotes and stories, but it's in credibly thought-provoking and a GREAT read for people looking to understand more about Blackfoot culture. I preface this review by saying that my father is a genealogist, and when people would come to him to start researching their family tree, the first thing he would tell them would be to talk to the oldest people in their family. Col [...]

    I have had the pleasure of teaching alongside Beverly and learning from her stories. She is a wealth of knowledge and this book is no exception. This is a must read for anyone, especially those living in Southern Alberta on Treaty 7 territory.

    this book was a pleasure to read. i liked the storytelling style. the book is mostly stories, usually told through elders hungry wolf talked to -- many were about religion & ceremony, or were the origin stories of various ceremonies, or were family histories and stories about dances and events and daily life -- there are also some segments on traditional blackfeet clothing, tanning, food, birth control (or not)/abortion, quillwork and beadwork, & other more "concrete" things at the end o [...]

    The Ways of My Grandmothers is a book of stories told to Beverly Hungry Wolf by her mother, grandmother, and older women of her tribe. The stories cover things like traditional rituals and everyday practices to keep the ancestry alive for their children and grandchildren. In here I will only tell you of a few stories for there are many. Rosie Davis tells of the first Native American of her tribe to get an actual education in school. I found the legend of the medicine lodge ceremony to be interes [...]

    This book is an important documentation of a now lost era in American history. Wolf captured the voices of old ladies in her tribe at a crucial moment when the last of the generation to experience firsthand the turn of the century were reaching the end of their lives. One could wish the information were better organized and that some crucial questions had been posed, but there is an amazing amount of information here. Ever since I got this book (1st edition in 1980) I have wanted to share these [...]

    Containing lore of Blackfoot Indian Tribes, The Ways of My Grandmothers recounts the skills, myths and culture passed down through generations of Native American women. The piece captures the voice of the author’s tribe members, and speaks to women of all walks of life. For teachers, this is an interesting and vital addition to the bookshelf—it presents a new way of life and thinking that students may or may not have ever encountered before, and may help broaden the way they look at the rela [...]

    Beverly Hungry Wolf recounts stories, customs, and practical traditional craft making from her Blackfoot roots.Unlike most dry anthropological tomes, Beverley practices the traditional arts and is well-versed in ceremony, and this embodied knowledge shines through. Her warmth and humor makes for a great read. She's someone I'd love to sit down with for strong coffee, a good chat, great storytelling, and some belly laughs.I'm pretty well versed in quite a bit of Native American culture, but I lea [...]

    I was assigned to read this book for my anthropology class and I loved it! It also helped that my teacher is a Native American woman and we could discuss this book and many other subjects in great detail. I have much respect and gratitude for these grandmothers and their way of life.

    Very interesting to read about such a different way of life, and to see how complicated we make things sometimes these days.

    Jennifer
    The information in this book is very interesting. It has a lot of views from different Native American women.

    Rose
    The Ways of My Grandmothers is a good read, especially "Around the Household," about cooking the insides.I find it exciting how in the past they lived, when I only watch it on TV.

    Megan
    One woman tries to record the life, traditions of women of her tribe. She tells many stories from older women in her tribe. It was fascinating to read.

    Read it so long ago but can't seem to pass it on. It was another life changing book reads. Don't know why but it captured my heart.

    Kae Cheatham
    This is one I go back and read now and then for reminders and focus.
