Abstract

Tai-me receives focused attention, as does Ko-sahn, the old woman who reappears in The Way to Rainy Mountain. As such The Journey of Tai-me presents a more fully accurate vision of the significance of the Sun Dance in Kiowa society, a role fulfilled now by the Gourd Dance and other Kiowa cultural ceremonies. And so, just as in The Journey of Tai-me there are the seeds of The Way to Rainy Mountain, there are in the four works under present consideration those elements one needs to appreciate and celebrate, to discover and rediscover N. Scott Momaday and his work. note 1. The portion of this review on In the Bear's House, updated to reflect the few changes in the new edition and slightly revised, appeared previously in Jim Charles, Reading, Learning, Teaching N. Scott Momaday (New York: Peter Lang, 2007), 91­93. Phil Bellfy. Three Fires Unity: The Anishnaabeg of the Lake Huron Borderlands.
