Native North American Child: An Odyssey was a 1974 compilation album released after Buffy Sainte-Marie's departure from Vanguard Records.

The compilation runs through the native theme in Sainte-Marie's writing, seen clearly in such songs as "Now That the Buffalo's Gone", "He's an Indian Cowboy in the Rodeo", "Soldier Blue", "My Country 'Tis of Thy People You're Dying" and the title tune. Two tracks, "Isketayo Sewow (Cree Call)" and "Way, Way, Way", are unique to this album and the former reflects an interest in traditional Native American music that she was to expand upon just before her retirement on Sweet America.
