An Oral History
Edited by Herbert T. Hoover, Edited by Joseph H. Cash, Introduction by Donald L. Fixico
Minnesota Historical Society Press (March 1, 1995)
A remarkable collection of transcribed oral histories of members of Dakota, Lakota, Winnebago, and other communities.
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
