Storyboard Text

  • I have come to give you the medicine bag.
  • Can I come see your grandpa?
  • I think I'm busy.
  • We are coming with you this time!
  • Grandpa told Martin that it was time for him to be given the medicine bag. It is a tradition to pass it to the oldest male child. Even though Martin did not have an Indian name, grandpa still wanted to give him the medicine bag.
  • I need to give you the medicine bag.
  • Martin was embarrassed for his friends to see grandpa. He did not want them laughing at grandpa. Cheryl would always bring her friends over with no problem.
  • Wow!
  • Martin's friends followed him home and wanted to see the great Indian of Bell View Drive. Martin was nervous. Cheryl's friends didn't seem to have a problem.
  • Once they arrived, all of Martin's friends looked up and said WOW! Grandpa was wearing a red shirt with a fringed leather vest and moccasins. Grandpa greeted them and entertained them with a story.
  • Grandpa sat with Martin and told him the story of the medicine bag. He told Martin that he must put a piece of prairie sage and never open it again. He told Martin that he does not have to wear it. That night Martin's parents took grandpa to the hospital.
  • Grandpa had died that night. The medicine bag contained a broken shell of an iron kettle, a pebble from the butte, and a piece of sacred sage. Two weeks later, Martin stood alone on the prairie and put the sage in.
