    1 thought on “These Were the Sioux

    1. This was good. An interesting look into the Sioux culture, beliefs, and a traditions. Counting this for my 2015 reading challenge as "a book based on a true story."

    2. Who was this book supposed to seduce? Here it is, the old battle cry of my childhood, the 70's of Berkeley, California, be liberal, be apologetic for the treatment of the native Americans by European immigrants, quite often themselves illiterate superstitious settlers. Against the prejudice of the white races against native Americans, "Sioux Indians came into my life before I had any preconceived notions about them," writes the author, promoting her vision of the nomad Indians she met in her chi [...]

    3. A short but very interesting and worthwhile book about the Sioux customs and beliefs by Mari Sandoz who, especially during her childhood, had contact to them as their old camping ground near the Sandoz family's home.

    4. -A society that has no locks can tolerate no thief; without paper or other easy record of man's word it can tolerate no liar, and no troublemaker if there is no jail, no prison.-"It is well to be good to women in the strength of our manhood because we must sit under their hands at both ends of our lives".

    5. Chapters focus on different aspects of Sioux life. Short, interesting. This line resonates:"This sense must not be that of the infant, to whom all things are joined, his to command, but that of the adult, upon whose conduct all things are dependent."

    6. short book. interesting quick look at Sioux life. very interesting (and admirable) view on importance of women in their culture/world.

    7. I have read elsewhere the that Sioux of Mari Sandoz' day highly respected her for telling their stories accurately. This short book gives excellent insight into Sioux culture and world view.

    8. The story of the author as a young girl in the 1890's learning about the Sioux from the curious and nonjudgmental eyes of childhood.

    9. The writer who is of Swiss origin, her parents settled in Nebraska, was in personal contact with this Indian tribe and gives a first hand account of their lifestyle

    10. When I am going to teach a Native People, I like to read a background book. Ms. Sandoz wrote this in old age from childhood memories. Wonderful details, sensitive wish it were longer!
