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.

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.
