If you just want to parent an object to a joint, select the object and then the joint and press P. If you want to bind the skin of a model to all of the joints, select the skin, then the pelvis joint and then do either a smooth or rigid bind.

As far as I know you don't parent bones to the model - the bones are just a visual guide.
