Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document 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.
