Black Elk Speaks Book Description :

Black Elk Speaks is the story of the Lakota visionary and healer Nicholas Black Elk (1863-1950) and his people during the momentous twilight years of the nineteenth century. Black Elk met the distinguished poet, writer, and critic John G. Neihardt (1881-1973) in 1930 on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and chose Neihardt to tell his story. Neihardt understood and conveyed Black Elk’s experiences in this powerful and inspirational message for all humankind. When Black Elk received his great vision, white settlers were invading the Lakotas’ homeland, decimating buffalo herds, and threatening to extinguish the Lakotas’ way of life. The Lakotas fought fiercely to retain their freedom and way of life, a dogged resistance that resulted in a remarkable victory at the Little Bighorn and an unspeakable tragedy at Wounded Knee. Black Elk Speaks offers much more than a precious glimpse of a vanished time, however. As related by Neihardt, Black Elk’s searing visions of the unity of humanity and the earth have made this book a venerated spiritual classic. 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. This new edition features two additional essays by John G. Neihardt that further illuminate his experience with Black Elk; an essay by Alexis Petri, great-granddaughter of John G. Neihardt, that celebrates Neihardt’s remarkable accomplishments; and a look at the legacy of the special relationship between Neihardt and Black Elk, written by Lori Utecht, editor of Knowledge and Opinion: Essays and Literary Criticism of John G. Neihardt. For more information on John G. Neihardt, visit www.neihardt.com

Winner of the Society of American Historians' Francis Parkman Prize Winner of the PEN / Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography Best Biography of 2016, True West magazine Winner of the Western Writers of America 2017 Spur Award, Best Western Biography Finalist, National Book Critics Circle Award for Biography Long-listed for the Cundill History Prize One of the Best Books of 2016, The Boston Globe The epic life story of the Native American holy man who has inspired millions around the world Black Elk, the Native American holy man, is known to millions of readers around the world from his 1932 testimonial Black Elk Speaks. Adapted by the poet John G. Neihardt from a series of interviews with Black Elk and other elders at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, Black Elk Speaks is one of the most widely read and admired works of American Indian literature. Cryptic and deeply personal, it has been read as a spiritual guide, a philosophical manifesto, and a text to be deconstructed—while the historical Black Elk has faded from view. In this sweeping book, Joe Jackson provides the definitive biographical account of a figure whose dramatic life converged with some of the most momentous events in the history of the American West. Born in an era of rising violence between the Sioux, white settlers, and U.S. government troops, Black Elk killed his first man at the Little Bighorn, witnessed the death of his second cousin Crazy Horse, and traveled to Europe with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show. Upon his return, he was swept up in the traditionalist Ghost Dance movement and shaken by the Massacre at Wounded Knee. But Black Elk was not a warrior, instead accepting the path of a healer and holy man, motivated by a powerful prophetic vision that he struggled to understand. Although Black Elk embraced Catholicism in his later years, he continued to practice the old ways clandestinely and never refrained from seeking meaning in the visions that both haunted and inspired him

Black Elk Speaks IV Book Description :

Not unlike Moses at Mt. Sinai, Black Elk had a powerful, predictive communication from the Higher Power. Instead of Moral and Ethical commandments, Black Elk's Vision was a forewarning of the Time that the World is in Now. Its core, the Blue Man of corruption, control and environmental disaster was exposed. Planetary Heating and Drought obviously exists for the observant. The blind deny, but each decade presents looming evidence. Unfortunately, Black Elk's Vision has been detoured, its ultimate message ignored. Black Elk Speaks IV challenges the previous versions of Black Elk Speaks. Eagle Man utilizes experienced Native American Spirituality to set humanity back on the right track of literary exploration. The Author has no quarrel with the original- Black Elk Speaks [I]. Ed was a close friend (kola) of the interpreter Ben Black Elk. Black Elk Speaks [II] and [III] are a conflicting matter that need to be challenged by a traditional Oglala Lakota (Sioux). -Jerry McGowan, author of The Place. Creator warned through Its Earth Powers. An honest White Man, John Neihardt, wrote the revelation truthfully to the world but academic White Men clouded the warning for nearly a century motivated by ego and their false sense of religious superiority. A Sioux warrior, my Dad, with no help from the NDN Academics had to come forward and bring forth the depth of the warning. -Paula K. Tonemah, M.A., author of Spirit Horse-Adventure in Crazy Horse Country. Decades went by before Black Elk spoke of the Vision, but before he began his revelation, he stated to John Neihardt, "I must tell you of my people before I tell you of my life so that you may trust me." In respect for Black Elk, Black Elk Speaks IV will follow his approach, relating Sioux history first. The times and subterfuge of governmental and obsessive religious control, dictated against Sioux people upon their federal reservations, resulted in fatal incarceration for some within the federally built Canton, SD Hiawatha Federa
