Black Elk Lives: Conversations with the Black Elk Family

Black Elk Lives: Conversations with the Black Elk Family Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The story and teachings of Nicholas Black Elk (1863-1950), first recorded by John G. Neihardt in Black Elk Speaks, have played a critical role in shaping the way in which Native Americans and others view the past, present, and future of Native America. These conversations with the descendents of Black Elk offer an intimate look at life on the Pine Ridge Reservation and fresh perspectives on the religious, economic, and political opportunities and challenges facing the Lakota people today. In addition to revealing more about Black Elk the healer, the family also provides glimpses of Black Elk as a family man, teacher, and influential ancestor.

Book News Annotation:

In this book the descendents of Black Elk (1863-1950) tell of their lives and their people, and consider how the legacy of Black Elk affects them today. Their interviews provide a look at life on the Pine Ridge Reservation, as well as offering perspectives on the religious, economic, and political challenges and opportunities facing modern Lakota people. Black Elk is seen here not only as a healer, but also as a family man, teacher, and influential ancestor.
