History 605 S3 Ep 4: Lakhota: An Indigenous History.

What would history be like if written using Lakota sources and centered around Lakota cultural ways, points of view, and debates? The western group of Oceti Sakowin tribes, known as the Lakota, is a vital aspect of the state’s history but due to language and profound cultural differences that history remains deeply misunderstood. Rani-Henrik Andersson, David C. Posthumus and I discuss their new book and the Lakota’s own 19th and early 20th century voices that tell a story of a vibrant culture undergoing momentous change.
