Beverley Hungry Wolf
Beverly Hungry Wolf is a member of the Blood Tribe of the Blackfoot people. She is a teacher of Blackfoot language and traditions, a renowned speaker and storyteller, and author and co-author of many books on Blackfoot culture including - Daughters of the Buffalo Women: Maintaining the Tribal Faith; The Ways of my Grandmothers; Shadows of the Buffalo; Siskia: A Blackfoot Legacy; and Children of the Sun: Stories by and about Indian Kids.

“Prejudice and lack of understanding are the greatest challenges in trying to bridge my tribal culture with others. The problem exists on both sides. Through my work and writings I hope I’m contributing to a very slow improvement.”
