Gros Ventre Culture and History

As a complement to our Gros Ventre language information, we would like to share our collection of indexed links about the Gros Ventre people and various aspects of their society. The emphasis of these pages is on American Indians as a living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Gros Ventre history is interesting and important, but the Gros Ventre are still here today, too, and we have tried to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
