our history

The book Lakota Woman brings to light how badly the Indians were treated. It's a nice part of our Bad history of the settling of the west.

Had to read this for a college course. There are certainly Native American rights which have been abused and many of them are covered in this book. Rather than clearly stating what these facts are, the writer wastes her pages on conjecture and opinion. There are certainly enough abuses in this book to be concerned about but much of it is written in a style that becomes whining. For instance, she bemoans that the white man will not let the Indians live in peace in a teepee on their own lands. Then speaks of living in a small "shack" without running water or a toilet. It's a lesson in contradictions and makes me somewhat ashamed of my own Native heritage.
