Luther Standing Bear recounts stories of his childhood (he was born in the 1860's), legends of his people, their customs An eye opening book about the life of the American Indian before, during and after the arrival of the white "Europeans". As the author points out, much of what I learned in school, books and movies concerning American Indians is totally bogus. The peaceful life experienced by Native Americans and the "oneness" with nature is something we, as a culture, have destroyed for them.

"A serious and notable contribution to racial understanding."—Saturday Review of Literature

Standing Bear's dismay at the condition of his people, when after sixteen years' absence he returned to the Pine Ridge Sioux Reservation, may well have served as a catalyst for the writing of this book, first published in 1933. In addition to describing the customs, manners, and traditions of the Teton Sioux, Standing Bear (as Richard N. Ellis notes in the foreword) "also offered more general comments about the importance of native cultures and values and the status of Indian people in American society." With the assistance of Melvin R. Gilmore, curator of ethnology at the University of Michigan, and his niece and secretary, Warcaziwin, Standing Bear sought to tell the white man "just how we lived as Lakotans." His book, generously interspersed with personal reminiscences and anecdotes, includes chapters on child rearing, social and political organization, the family, religion, and manhood. Standing Bear's views on Indian affairs and his suggestions for the improvement of white-Indian relations are presented in the two closing chapters.

Standing Bear's My People the Sioux (1928), edited by E. A. Brininstool, also is available in a Bison Books edition, with an introduction by Richard N. Ellis.

An excellent, and very interesting, cultural and social history of the Lakota Nation. The people of this country know so little of the history of our indigenous peoples and the way White America treated them and the impact that this treatment had on these people. This book helps to bridge that knowledge gap and should be required reading for all high school American History classes.

I'm still in the process of reading this book and enjoying it very much. I have always had an interest in Native Americans and their history. Now I'm learning from this book just how mistaken some ideas are about how these people lived. Makes me sad that we as a people did such an injustice to the Native American Nation.

This book is so densely informative about the detials of daily life, and soo very good that I can only read it in small bits before bed. It strikes me how much lakota life was excactly what the christian country cowboy wants out of life today. It respects decency, honors warriors who protect the people, champions knowledge of the natural environment, family respect, a life lived honorably, passing on of tradition, etcetera. It's all the same. It just looked different. I think indigenous people all over the world had been existing as close to the experience that gives the human being all it needed. Sure we moderns don't have violence in certain places, but we have it in others. We just push our uncomfortable parts of life around, dress them up, and think we're more civilized. The suppression of the natural persona ends up creating horrible things like mental illness, murder, and rape, drug abuse, ad infinitum. The Lakota lived honestly, and they really worked out a society over millennia that we could never match.

Buy this book..rent this book...borrow this book.....but by all means...READ THIS BOOK!! Do not let skintone or religious belief shy you away from reading this great learning of Native peoples' lives..I had to read this last semester at Tribal College. And I was amazed at what I learned.What is inside this book contains knowledge that will help future generations if only they read it.

I study with two Native Elders and Mr. Standing Bear and his interpretation of these wisdom tales is greatly respected by First Nation people. Beautifully written and the stories themselves are still full of the riches of a plundered civilization.

This book shows the honest life lived by many thousands of American Indians prior to the destruction of their culture and take-over of their lands. Luther Standing Bear tells about family life, tribal culture, and the demoralization of their people. But he does so without apparent ill will towards the white man, rather an acceptance that would have proven very difficult for me personally. A very good read for those wanting to understand the other side of the story.
