Black Elk Speaks, the story of the Oglala Lakota visionary and healer Nicholas Black Elk (1863?1950) and his people during momentous twilight years of the nineteenth century, offers readers much more than a precious glimpse of a vanished time. Black Elk?s searing visions of the unity of humanity and Earth, conveyed by John G. Neihardt, have made this book a classic that crosses multiple genres. Whether appreciated as the poignant tale of a Lakota life, a history of a Native nation, or an enduring spiritual testament, Black Elk Speaks is unforgettable.
Black Elk met the distinguished poet, writer, and critic John G. Neihardt in 1930 on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and asked Neihardt to share his story with the world. Neihardt understood and conveyed Black Elk?s experiences in this powerful and inspirational message for all humankind.
This complete edition features a new introduction by esteemed scholar Philip J. Deloria and annotations of Black Elk?s story by renowned Lakota scholar Raymond J. DeMallie. Three essays by John G. Neihardt provide background on this landmark work along with essays by Vine Deloria Jr., Raymond J. DeMallie, Alexis Petri, and Lori Utecht. Maps, the original illustrations by Standing Bear, and a set of appendixes rounds out the edition.
Sinossi: In the 1930s, John Neihardt, a poet and a chronicler of the old West and Native American folkways, spent many hours with Black Elk, one of the most revered holy men of the Oglala Sioux. The result was Black Elk Speaks, a book that has enthralled spiritual seekers from every tradition for more than 70 years. In his own words, Black Elk tells of the trials and sufferings, as well as the triumphs and joys that the Sioux experienced after the coming of white settlers. His inspiring words, which tell not just the story of his people but also of his hope for humankind and respect for the earth, have entered the hearts of people all over the world. An inspired, authentic reading by Fred Contreras gives voice to Black Elk?s impassioned plea for all people to live in harmony with the earth and its Creator.
