The Plains Cree : An Ethnographic, Historical, and Comparative Study Paperback / softback


First published in 1940, David Mandelbaum's study remains the definitive account of the Plains Cree.

In this revised edition, first reprinted in 1978, Part One contains the original material dealing with Plains Cree history and ethnology.

Part Two is a two-fold comparative study: the first section compares the Plains Cree to other groups east of the Plains: the Eastern Cree, various Ojibwa groups, the bands of the Labrador Peninsula, the Menomini, and other Central Woodlands tribes; the second section compares Plains Cree culture to other Plains tribes, mainly those of the northern Plains.
