Black Elk Speaks is the most widely-read Native American testimony of the last century and a key work in our understanding of American Indian traditions. In Black Elk, Lakota Visionary, Oldmeadow draws on recently discovered sources to present a major re-assessment of Black Elk's life and work. Oldmeadow's lively and readable account explores the holy man's mystical visions, his controversial engagement with Catholicism, and his attempts to preserve and revive ancestral Sioux beliefs and practices.
