The Ponca illustrated book was made in 1977 and is the product of an Indian Cultural Retention project by the Oklahoma Indian Affairs Commission in collaboration with the Ponca tribe. It contains the Ponca alphabet and numbers, along with chapters on the Ponca worlds of social relationships which includes food, legends, fables and beliefs, dances, traditional designs, and natural creation.
