    1 thought on “Speaking of Indians”

    1. An interesting introduction to the beliefs and lifestyle of the Native Americans, specifically the Dakotas, and how their beliefs and customs, particularly those related to kinship ties, affected their lives on the reservation and their interactions with the white man at that time. The information is mostly pre-World War II.

    2. Good, short introduction to the Lakota Sioux, from prehistoric times to the 1940s. Written for a White Protestant church audience in the US to fight racist stereotypes about Natives. Very pro-Sioux yet also pro-Christian. She was herself Sioux, a missionary's daughter, student of Franz Boas and aunt of Vine Deloria Jr.

    3. It definitely reads from a period where Indigenous voices were different regarding elements of colonization, in particular Christianity, but it captures an important moment in history, and Deloria has important truths throughout the book. It's important to read the words of Native American women.

    4. A little dry at first, but the more you read the more impassioned the argumentation becomes. Ella Cara Deloria had the difficult task of presenting this work to a mostly white audience and the strength of her arguments have made this work a must read in the field of anthropology.
