Lakota Winds narrates the battle of the Little Big Horn as seen through the eyes of the Sioux. It is a fast-paced story bringing to life that fateful encounter between Custer’s 7th Cavalry and the Sioux and Cheyenne. Never again would Native Americans assemble in such numbers as they did on that day in 1876, and never again would they inflict such a punishing defeat upon the United States military. Lakota Winds recaptures these precious hours of Sioux heritage. Matowla, Tankala Pay-ta, Unci, Osota, and Ishna were all witnesses to this final episode of the era of the Plains Indian. These characters represent the thousands of Lakota and Cheyenne who were camped along the Greasy Grass (Little Big Horn River) that summer morning when Custer’s troops attacked. Matowla, Pay-ta, Unci, and Ishna have been entrusted to act as vocal embassies for their historical counterparts. It will be their obligation to speak for a people whose voices have all but been stilled by the passage of time.

¾–Josephine Waggonerês writings offer a unique perspective on the Lakota. Witness will become a widely referenced primary source. Emily Levine has meticulously examined all known collections of Waggonerês manuscripts, sometimes comparing handwritten drafts with multiple typed copies to preserve information in full. Levineês extensive notes are well chosen and informative. Witness will interest both specialist and popular audiences.”ãRaymond DeMallie, Chancellorsê Professor of Anthropology and American Indian Studies at Indiana University¾ During the 1920s and 1930s, Josephine Waggoner (1871_1943), a Lakota woman who had been educated at Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute in Virginia, grew increasingly concerned that the history and culture of her people were being lost as elders died without passing along their knowledge. A skilled writer, Waggoner set out to record the lifeways of her people and correct much of the misinformation about them spread by white writers, journalists, and scholars of the day. To accomplish this task, she traveled to several Lakota and Dakota reservations to interview chiefs, elders, traditional tribal historians, and other tribal members, including women.¾¾ Published for the first time and augmented by extensive annotations, Witness offers a rare participantês perspective on nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Lakota and Dakota life. The first of Waggonerês two manuscripts presented here includes extraordinary firsthand and as-told-to historical stories by tribal members, such as accounts of life in the Powder River camps and at the agencies in the 1870s, the experiences of a mixed-blood HÏ?kpap?a girl at the first off-reservation boarding school, and descriptions of traditional beliefs. The second manuscript consists of Waggonerês sixty biographies of Lakota and Dakota chiefs and headmen based on eyewitness accounts and interviews with the men themselves. Together these singular manuscripts provide new and extensive information on the history, culture, and experiences of the Lakota and Dakota peoples.

William J. Bordeaux (Buffalo Killer [Ptek̇asoela] William J. Bordeaux was a bona-fide member of the Brule band of the Sioux tribe. His grandfather James Bordeaux was one of the early French fur traders who bravely carried on his trade and barter with the Sioux when the virgin prairies of the west were still an open frontier. A lineal descendent of Red Cormorant Woman [Huntkalutawin], his grandmother, he was well versed in his mother tongue. Being proficient in several dialects of the native language, he was able to converse with sage and grizzled old warriors, and thus obtain information impossible for a white man to learn. His close union with his own tribe and daily conversations with them is an assurance that no doubtful, or transcribed evidence, will appear on these pages. In Bordeaux's search for material for a history of his people, he spent considerable time, traveled and talked to the oldest Indians on the different Sioux Indian Reservations. Through his research he stored up and accumulated a wealth of stories and legends, with awe inspiring fables, and facts which would be valuable to story writers. These fragmentary myths and authentic facts connected with his people would have been lost without these writings. In his travels for the purpose of obtaining datum relative to the hostile activities by the different war chiefs, he found one warrior that stood out alone, excelling all other Sioux war braves, as to courage, and cunning, "Crazy Horse," an Oglala Sioux."

LAKOTA TALES AND TEXTS IN TRANSLATION has a remarkable history of its own. The original Lakota manuscript was rescued from destruction during the violent occupation of the village of Wounded Knee, South Dakota, during the late winter of 1973. In 1970, Paul Manhart, a Catholic priest of the Society of Jesus and at the time a pastor in that village, had published Eugene Buechel, S.J.'s monumental Lakota-English Dictionary, with the late Louis and Daisy Whirlwind Horse assisting. Louis had been a tribal interpreter and Daisy was a highly perceptive translator. Father Manhart had an office in the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church overlooking the mass grave of Lakota visitor victims of the 1890 massacre. At the time of occupation, he had borrowed the original manuscript of Buechel's "Lakota Tales and Texts" from the Holy Rosary Mission archives. He was planning soon to publish it. So he kept it on a lower shelf in the far corner of his small library. Early during the occupation, he and two local men, Benjamin White Butterfly and Ruben Mesteth, took a box and went to the office, only to find it in shambles and the room and library shelves stripped of books - all except the Tales and Texts manuscript in the corner, a dingy home-made book in Lakota long-hand, untouched. All else was gone. In June of 1978 then, "Lakota Tales and Texts" was published in St. Louis. Father Manhart prepared this translation to answer many requests from teachers of history, social sciences, and language; and to lay a groundwork for preparing a series of Lakota language texts for systematically teaching the language in a two or four-year high school course. In Louis and Daisy Whirlwind Horse's words: "Our children will lose some real and conscious contact with their roots unless we continue to record and study Lakota."
