In this dissertation, Rodnick chronicles the loss of
Assiniboine culture. The Assiniboine are the most northerly extension of Sioux-speaking
people on the Great Plains. They signed the Fort Laramie treaty in 1851 and permanently
settled on Fort Belknap Reservation in 1888 after the near extinction of the buffalo forced
them to change their way of life. In the 1890s, compulsory education, wage labor, farming,
and stock raising began a period of assimilation. The total failure of farming and ranching
left the Assiniboine impoverished by the 1930s. Rodnick describes the different dance
societies and relates several Assiniboine life histories.
