Myths and Legends of the Sioux 38 Sioux Folk Tales

Herein readers will find 38 Sioux folk and fairy tales. Stories like - THE FORGOTTEN EAR OF CORN, THE LITTLE MICE, THE PET RABBIT, THE STORY OF THE LOST WIFE, THE FAITHFUL LOVERS, THE BRAVE WHO WENT ON THE WARPATH ALONE AND WON THE NAME OF THE LONE WARRIOR and many more. The 38 stories contained in this little volume were told to the compiler by the older men and women of the Sioux a long, long time ago. Careful notes were made, knowing that, if not recorded correctly, these folk tales would be lost to posterity by the passing of the primitive Indian, for the American Indian race was, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, at a most interesting stage of development. Its ancient culture was fast receding into the mists of the past. The compiler of the stories was, herself, one-fourth Sioux and through her birth acquired a thorough knowledge of the Sioux language. Her maternal grandfather, a Scotsman by birth, who in 1811 arrived in the British Northwest to found what was known as the Selkirk Colony, near Lake Winnipeg. Her grandmother, Ha-za-ho-ta-win, was a full-blood of the Medawakanton Band of the Sioux Tribe of Indians. Her father, Joseph Buisson, was born near Montreal, Canada. She married Major James McLaughlin who became the Indian agent at the Devils Lake Agency, North Dakota. Later they were transferred to Standing Rock, on the Missouri River, to take charge of the Sioux who had then but recently surrendered to the military authorities. Having lived on Indian reservations over forty years she, therefore, had exceptional opportunities of learning the legends and folk-lore of the Sioux. 33% of the net profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charities.

Joseph M. Marshall’s thoughtful, illuminating account of how the spiritual beliefs of the Lakota people can help us all lead more meaningful, ethical lives. Rich with storytelling, history, and folklore, The Lakota Way expresses the heart of Native American philosophy and reveals the path to a fulfilling and meaningful life. Joseph Marshall is a member of the Sicunga Lakota Sioux and has dedicated his entire life to the wisdom he learned from his elders. Here he focuses on the twelve core qualities that are crucial to the Lakota way of life--bravery, fortitude, generosity, wisdom, respect, honor, perseverance, love, humility, sacrifice, truth, and compassion. Whether teaching a lesson on respect imparted by the mythical Deer Woman or the humility embodied by the legendary Lakota leader Crazy Horse, The Lakota Way offers a fresh outlook on spirituality and ethical living.

In this renowned collection of fourteen Native stories, the noted Yankton Sioux writer Zitkala-Sa (1876-1938) shares tales learned during her childhood in the late nineteenth century. Told for generations, these stories are part of both the heritage and the legacy of the Yankton Sioux, reflecting an active, continually revitalized storytelling tradition. Power, wonder, and a distinctive understanding of the world infuse these tales. Featured here are the classic adventures of the trickster spider Iktomi, as well as the exploits of formidable animal beings and such legendary characters as Iya the glutton, the giant Anuk-ite, and the hero Blood Clot boy. P. Jane Hafen provides a new introduction for this edition. Zitkala-Sa's other books include American Indian Stories and Dreams and Thunder: Stories, Poems, and "The Sun Dance Opera," both published by the University of Nebraska Press. P. Jane Hafen is an associate professor of English at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. She is the editor of Dreams and Thunder and coeditor of A Great Plains Reader (Nebraska 2003). Agnes Picotte is a teacher at the Red Cloud Indian School and has contributed to many volumes, including Ella Deloria's Waterlily, available in a Bison Books edition.

The timid rabbit who outwits the tyrannical bear, the wonderful turtle who marries the Indian chief's daughter, the pet crane who saves a family?these and many other legendary figures appear in Myths and Legends of the Sioux. Marie L. McLaughlin, born to a white father and a mixed-blood Sioux mother, heard these stories while growing up among the eastern Sioux of Minnesota. When she recorded them for posterity in 1916 she had long been the wife of James McLaughlin, whom she served as interpreter during the years he was head of the Devils Lake and Standing Rock agencies and an inspector for the Indian Bureau. The thirty-eight pieces in this collection are rich in humor, animal lore, otherworldly encounters, and famous legends such as those featuring Unktomi (Spider) and the Stone Boy.

The Great Sioux War pitted almost one-third of the U.S. Army against Lakota Sioux and Northern Cheyennes. By the time it ended, this war had played out on twenty-seven different battlefields, resulted in hundreds of casualties, cost millions of dollars, and transformed the landscape and the lives of survivors on both sides. In this compelling sourcebook, Paul Hedren uses extensive documentation to demonstrate that the American army adapted quickly to the challenges of fighting this unconventional war and was more effectively led and better equipped than is customarily believed.
