The Ghost Dance

Book - 1995
Rate this:
Dazzling paintings and "assemblage pieces" containing historic artifacts and natural objects from the Great Plains highlight this spare, poetic account of a dramatic episode in American history. The Ghost Dance movement, envisioned by the Paiute prophets Tavibo and Wovoka, began in hope: Native peoples danced together to restore the bountiful world of their ancestors. But it ended in tragedy, with the massacre at Wounded Knee. This evocative story offers a vivid glimpse of a vanished past, and a powerful message for the future.
