Many books have been written by scholars describing one aspect or another of Native American life, their history, their spirituality, the 1973 occupation, and a few have tried to describe the boarding schools. None have connected the dots. Until the language of the everyday man is used, scholarly words will shut out the people they describe and the pathology created by federal Indian policy will continue.

I saw Mr. Littlemoon's story on PBS and decided to order his book. I am in the process of reading it now and so far I am fascinated by his account of his life and his family's experiences at the hands of our federal government bureaucracy. Any constitutional government that tries to strip a native people of their history and ways of life by trying to erase it is betraying the democratic principles on which they are based. Mr. Littlemoon tells his story with honesty, humility and a reaffirmation of his belief in his "Lakota ways".Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
