To Be an Indian: An Oral History
In this remarkable collection of transcribed oral histories members of Dakota, Lakota, Winnebago, and other communities tell of their personal experiences: reservation life, the Great Depression, self-government, traditions, and life in the 1960s. Together these voices present a rich and complicated view of what it is to be an American Indian.

Praise for To Be an Indian:
"The book is a refreshing, well-presented view of Indian culture, especially Sioux, in the twentieth century that is not found very often today. Definitely, one of the better oral history compilations of a diverse and interesting culture."--Denver Westerners ROUNDUP
