This retelling of an ancient Native tale relates the story of Star Boy, son of Morning Star and an earthly bride. It is considered a reverent, eye-catching rendition of an important Indian story.
As a symbol of the Sun's disapproval for his mother's disobedience , a mysterious scar was placed upon Star Boy's face and he was banished from the Sky World. As a young man, Star Boy grew to love the chief's daughter. She helped him find the courage to journey to the Sky World and make peace with the Sun. The Sun lifted the scar from his face and sent Star Boy back to the world with the sacred knowledge of the Sun Dance, a ceremony of thanks for the Creator's blessing.
