Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Individuals of all persuasions have become deeply interested in contemporary Sioux religious practices.

Review:

"A valuable contribution to the field of Native American religions, to Sioux religious thought and ceremony, and to the history of Sioux religious belief and practice." Omer C. Stewart
