I loved the insight into Sioux life, customs and culture. Especially the difference between before and after experience with the white people. I soon became aware of the complete difference between the perceptions of our history, and our teaching after this book. This would be a great source for answering some questions about what were the root cause of the hard feelings and bitterness on both sides.

My People the Sioux, by Luther Standing Bear. This modest autobiography deserves applause on several counts. It is the self-told reminiscences of a Sioux tribesman whose life bridged the worlds of both the wild Sioux of the Plains and the civilized Sioux of the early 20th century.

My People the Sioux book. Luther Standing Bear gives a true picture of the life of his people. One can discover the actual facts of the life of an influential man and the way of life of the Indians; not the untrue way they were depicted in movies and other books. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the real life of a Sioux. An excellent first person story of life among the Sioux in the 19th century.

Luther Standing Bear. A serious and notable contribution to racial understanding. Standing Bear'sødismay at the condition of his people, when after sixteen years' absence he returned to the Pine Ridge Sioux Reservation, may well have served as a catalyst for the writing of this book, first published in 1933. Отзывы - Написать отзыв.

Standing Bear told his own story as well as that of his people, the Lakota Indians, with the release of these volumes in the early 1930s, some of the first books to tell his people's history from.

In 1931, after an absence of sixteen years, Luther Standing Bear returned to the Pine Ridge Sioux Reservation in South Dakota

It is this loss of faith that has left a void in Indian life-a void that civilization cannot fill. In 1931, after an absence of sixteen years, Luther Standing Bear returned to the Pine Ridge Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. In preceding years conditions on the reservation had worsened, and Standing Bear was shocked by the physical and mental status of the reservation Sioux.

Born in 1868 the son of an Oglala chief, Luther Standing Bear was in the first class at Carlisle, witnessed the Ghost Dance uprising from the Pine Ridge Reservation, toured Europe with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, and devoted his later years to the Indian rights movement of the 1920s. His autobiography, first published in 1928, gives a rare inside view by an Indian who successfully made the transition from tribal life to the white man's world.

The Sinners from Mitar
This is one the best books I have read about he plains Indians.
Following Luther Standing Bear, thru his childhood on the plains and
explaining how Teepees are made, how they would skin buffalo and use
every part. All the traditions and customs they had. How they took care of their
own; especially the elderly, who were highly respected and treated with care
and dignity.

Then we follow Standing Bear, to the modern, white man's world, where
he realizes for his tribe to survive and himself as well, goes to enroll in the first Indian School...
Carlisle School for Indian children, established in 1879. Luther was the FIRST to complete his education here.

This is a very well written, first person account of life on the plains and into to the 19th century.
Could not put this book down.

This man lived a life that was so vivid and different than can be imagined. To go from living in his tribe to a successful man adapting to so much changes in his life is incomprehensible for anyone to understand. After reading this book, you WILL get a true respect for what the AMERICAN INDIANS were put through and their wholesome way of life as meant to be by our creator.

I have read no better book about Native Americans than this one. It is a great story for white people, and all other non-Indians, and a call to respect these "first Americans". It is also a call for all Native Americans to take their place as full citizens and members of this nation-and never accept anything less than what has been promised in treaties to them. We non-natives must stand with them to insure that they are not allowed to languish in broken promises and poverty.

“My People the Sioux”, by Luther Standing Bear

This modest autobiography deserves applause on several counts. It is the self-told reminiscences of a Sioux tribesman whose life bridged the worlds of both the “wild Sioux” of the Plains and the “civilized Sioux” of the early 20th century.
The author is quite gentlemanly and writes in such a warm style that the reader will soon think he’s reading a letter from an old friend. Of course he polishes the Indians’ apple a bit but that’s okay and nothing a couple grains of salt won’t ease. The only statement he makes that is laughably off-base is that Sioux women don’t gossip when they work together.
There is a lot of information about the “everyday” side of Sioux life and relations that is very interesting. The reader will also see that the Sioux weren’t simply howling, bloodthirsty ghouls who happened to be the best light cavalry in the world. Fact is, they were often active negotiators and cooperators exhibiting an admirable patience, concern and self-control, and often in situations that people of other races might well have “lost their cool”. Very good reading.
Mysterious Wrench
I found this book to be an excellent source of information about life among the Sioux Indians in Nebraska and Dakota, and one man story about how he fought to gain dignity and integration as a legitimate American citizen
This book is unlike any other I have read. . Luther Standing Bear gives a true picture of the life of his people. One can discover the actual facts of the life of an influential man and the way of life of the Indians; not the untrue way they were depicted in movies and other books. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the real life of a Sioux. Well done!
