Product Overview

Told from the Native American point of view, Black Elk?s Vision provides a unique perspective on American history.
From recounting the visions Black Elk had as a young boy, to his involvement in the battles of Little Big Horn and Wounded Knee, as well as his journeys to New York City and Europe with Buffalo Bill?s Wild West Show, this biographical account of Black Elk?an Oglala-Lakota medicine man (1863?1950)?follows him from childhood through adulthood.
S. D. Nelson tells the story of Black Elk through the medicine man?s voice, bringing to life what it was like to be Native American in the mid-to-late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. The Native people found their land overrun by the Wha-shi-choos, or White Man, the buffalo slaughtered for sport and to purposely eliminate their main food source, and their people gathered onto reservations. Through it all, Black Elk clung to his childhood visions that planted the seeds to help his people?and all people?understand their place in the circle of life.
The book includes archival images, a timeline, a bibliography, an index, and Nelson?s signature art.
