American Indian Stories, Legends and Other Writings by Zitkala-'sa
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Zitkala-Sa struggled with the conflicting influences of American-Indian and white culture throughout her life. Raised on a Sioux reservation, she attended boarding schools that enforced assimilation and was witness to major events in white-Indian relations in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Drawing on personal experience, Zitkala-Sa's stories and articles illuminate the tragedy and complexity of the American-Indian experience. In authoritative prose, she encourages new thinking about the perceptions, assumptions and customs of both Sioux and white cultures and raises questions about assimilation, identity and race relations that remain relevant today.
