Natural childbirth, a respect for elders and spiritual practice, a sense of responsibility for family and tribe, and training in stillness and attentiveness (especially when interacting with the natural world) were important and beneficial aspects of traditional native childhood. Tribal Childhood recounts fascinating stories of naming ceremonies and the "dreaming" of anames, birthing practices, the construction and use of cradleboards, initiations into puberty and special societies, and courting and marriage customs. In addition to his personal experience of over thirty years helping to raise his childen among the Blackfoot, Adolf Hungrywolf features archival material covering customs among the Winnebago, Flathead-Salish, navajo, Chippewa, and other native peoples. More than forty vintage photographs and illustrations are included, along with photos of the author's children enjoyhing their own tribal childhood.
