Black Elk's Religion: The Sun Dance and Lakota Catholicism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this religious history of the spiritual life of the great Lakota leader Black Elk, Clyde Holler reconstructs the development of the Lakota Sun Dance--the central religious ritual of the Lakota tradition, which is essential to understanding Black Elk's thought. This comprehensive study of the dance, which was banned by the U.S. government in 1883, shows how Black Elk adapted and reinterpreted it in terms commensurate with Christianity.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 231-239) and index.
