Journey to Wellness in Indian Country: "Bear's Braid"
"It's not just my son's story"
When Joelle Bearstail's son was being bullied at school for having long hair, she didn't get mad.
First, she met with teachers and administrators. Then she arranged a "cultural presentation" to teach the non-Native kids in his class a little more about her family's Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara traditions.
Then she wrote a book.
