Written in collaboration with Lakota academicians and tribal historians and after years of study and discussion with tribal elders, this monograph is an especially good example of the crucially important role tribal colleges are playing in cultural reclamation and preservation. It is an extensively illustrated compendium of tribal knowledge, a highly useful and usable sourcebook, and a dramatic demonstration of the knowledge and wisdom which is the result of many generations of tribal experience and reflection on this landscape.
