Reading and Writing the Lakota Language Book on CD
Based on extensive research and pedagogy on the Rosebud Reservation, this elementary grammar of Lakota, one of three languages spoken by the Sioux nation, is the first written by a native Lakota speaker. It presents the Sicangu dialect using an orthography developed by Lakota in 1982 and which is now supplanting older systems provided by linguists and missionaries. This new approach represents a powerful act of self-determination for Indian education.

Though READING AND WRITING THE LAKOTA LANGUAGE is thorough in its inclusion of conjugation, syntax, and sentence structure, it emphasizes vocabulary and pronunciation. Author Albert White Hat Sr. presents Lakota philosophy as it applies to specific grammar lessons. These examples offer new information and interpretations of Lakota spirituality and society, even to scholars who specialize in Plains cultures. Moreover, he documents the impact of the acculturation process on language, showing how Lakota evolved as a result of non-Indian influences. Beyond language instruction, readers will value the book for its cultural insights, humorous stories, and its entertaining tone.

"White Hat has given a unique window into contemporary Lakota oral tradition as well as into language as it is now practiced on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation. No other Lakota language text and no other volume in the extensive Lakota ethnography tells us as much about the effect of language on both cultural deterioration and survival."--Julian Rice

Louis L'Amour Trail Mix: Volume One
More than any writer before or since, Louis L'Amour brought the American West to life. His action-packed stories dealt with eternal themes: honor, deceit, passion, betrayal, loyalty, courage, love. His settings were historically accurate, his prose riveting, and his characters colorful: good guys, bad guys, tough, roughs, sidekicks, and saints. TRAIL MIX II gathers four popular Louis L'Amour stories, performed by Willie Nelson: "Mistakes Can Kill You," "The Nester and the Piute," "Trail to Pie Town," and "Big Medicine."

Quiet Thunder: The Wisdom of Crazy Horse (Sounds True Audio Learning Course)
Mention the name Crazy Horse, and many of us will remember a history lesson about a faceless Indian warrior who defeated General George Custer at the Battle of the Little Big Horn. But beyond this singular event, who was this man? And what teaching did he offer to all peoples of every nation? On Quiet Thunder, Lakota lineage holder Joseph M. Marshall III presents the first audio-learning program based entirely on the rich oral tradition of his people to share a vibrant portrait "painted with the brush of reality rather than the distortion of legend." With him, you will meet a compassionate but purposeful man driven by the empowering vision of a "Thunder Dreamer"- one who "walked the path of giving as opposed to gaining," honor instead of ego, and leadership through leading, not authority. Let the past come alive with Quiet Thunder as Joseph M. Marshall III uncovers the life and teachings of Crazy Horse-warrior, visionary, and beloved leader of the Lakota nation.

Living the Lakota Way: Learning from the Land, the Spirits, and Our Ancestors

An Invitation to Share the Inheritance of Lakota Wisdom

We are all indigenous to the planet Earth―and that is why each of us can benefit from indigenous wisdom. Throughout their history, the Lakota people developed many enduring insights and practices for achieving harmony with all the forces in our life―including the land, the spirits, our community, and ourselves. On Living the Lakota Way, Joseph M. Marshall explores how you can apply the core principles of Lakota wisdom to your own life, no matter who you are or where you come from.

Lessons for Living with Simplicity, Courage, and Purpose

Through his gifts as a storyteller, Joseph Marshall brings Lakota history and lore to life with his words. With each piece of Lakota tradition he shares, Joseph offers a special focus on the aspects that are most valuable and relevant to us today in our own lives. How do we choose the heroes that we honor? Where do we find the strength to make it through challenging times? How do we relate to the earth, to our ancestors, and to the profound mystery of the spirit world? The Lakota tradition, as Joseph Marshall imparts it, can provide us with much-needed guidance for finding answers to the essential questions of our lives.

The Lakota people begin prayers with words that mean “All My Relatives,” addressing the people, animals, elements, and spirits as being all part of a single great family. It is in this spirit of kinship that Joseph M. Marshall offers the greatest treasure of his people―the wisdom of Lakota traditions, philosophy, and stories. Living the Lakota Way is an invitation in friendship to share an inheritance that arose from one people but was meant to enrich us all.

Heart Berries: A Memoir
Heart Berries is a powerful, poetic memoir of a woman's coming of age on the Seabird Island Indian Reservation in the Pacific Northwest. Having survived a profoundly dysfunctional upbringing only to find herself hospitalized and facing a dual diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder and bipolar II disorder; Terese Marie Mailhot is given a notebook and begins to write her way out of trauma. The triumphant result is Heart Berries, a memorial for Mailhot's mother, a social worker and activist who had a thing for prisoners; a story of reconciliation with her father-an abusive drunk and a brilliant artist-who was murdered under mysterious circumstances; and an elegy on how difficult it is to love someone while dragging the long shadows of shame. Mailhot trusts us to understand that memory isn't exact, but melded to imagination, pain, and what we can bring ourselves to accept. Her unique and at times unsettling voice graphically illustrates her mental state. As she writes, she discovers her own true voice, seizes control of her story, and, in so doing, reestablishes her connection to her family, to her people, and to her place in the world.
