The Soul Of The Indianby Charles A. Eastman
Eastman was born on the Santee Reservation in/i>
THE SOUL OF THE INDIAN is Charles Eastman’s fascinating study of the religious and spiritual life of the Indian people, as he knew them over 100 years ago. He explores the Dakota belief in God—‘the Great Mystery’, ceremonies, symbolism, the moral code of the Dakota and much more.
Eastman was born on the Santee Reservation in Minnesota in 1858. His grandparents raised him after his mother’s death and his father’s capture during the “Minnesota Sioux Uprising”. At the age of 15 he was reunited with his father and embarked on a life in white man’s society. He became a doctor and spent the rest of his life helping Indian people cope with the changes to their world and trying to reconcile the opposing values and beliefs of white society and Sioux culture.

This was my first look into discovering the unadulterated Native American identity. It's words are very insightful and have stayed with me since the first time I read it 11 years ago. I absolutely love it.
This is one of those books that can make a dedicated reader question many things that are considered standard. Its gives great insight into the minds and ways of native americans. from spirits to christ this books hits it all. I really enjoyed the part of the book that focuses on the ways of the white man. Overall it is a good read, and will make you think.
