              The ghost dance

              2016

              by Alice McLerran and Paul Morin

              The bountiful world of their ancestors was no more -- the result of white settlers' relentless westward movement in the U.S. A Paiute visionary, Tavibo, and his son each dreamed that if Native peoples danced, the white people would disappear and the ghosts of the wildlife that had been decimated would return. The ghost dance movement began in the U.S. in the 1800s, in hope as native peoples came together to dance for their shared dream. The dream failed and they tried again. Again the dream failed tragically. But the vision and the dream still call out to all people, envisioning a future when all Indian peoples would be united, disease would vanish, and the earth would be regenerated and restored. --publisher's site
