Waterlily by Ella Cara Deloria. A narrative about the Dakota Sioux tribe pre-contact. Tells the story of Blue Bird and Waterlily and their adoption by the Dakota people after escaping a harsh winter. Important to class: fictionalizes and draws reader into a PRE-CONTACT Native American story. Important to me: removes the White/Anglo lens from Native American literature
