Spider Woman's granddaughters : traditional tales and contemporary writing by Native American women by Paula Gunn Allen( Book )

Native American scholar, literary critic, poet, and novelist Paula Gunn Allen, who is herself a Laguna Pueblo-Sioux Indian, became increasingly aware in her academic career that the writings of Native Americans, especially women, have been marginalized by the Western literary canon. Allen set out to understand why this was so and, more importantly, to remedy the situation. The result is this powerful collection of traditional tales, biographical writings, and contemporary short stories, many by the most accomplished Native American women writing today, including: Louise Erdrich, Mary TallMountain, Linda Hogan, and many others

Ella Deloria's The Buffalo People by Ella Cara Deloria( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The longest story, "The Buffalo People," concerns the origin of tribal identity based on such ideal qualities as the strength and generosity of the buffalo and the resiliency and grace of the corn. Following the noted storyteller Makula (Breast or Left Heron), Deloria improvises upon the poetic conventions of oral performance, from simple asides to traditional set speeches of the Buffalo Woman ceremony. Blending careful observation with creative skill, these stories offer new and often surprising perspectives on Lakota culture. They will entertain and instruct any reader with an interest in Native American societies of the past and present
Ella Deloria's Iron Hawk by Ella Cara Deloria( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ella Deloria, the bilingual and bicultural Lakota ethnologist and linguist, wrote hundreds of traditional narratives, autobiographies, anecdotes, and reminiscences in both Lakota and English during the 1920s and 1930s. Iron Hawk represents the culmination of Deloria's colloquial style of synthesizing from memory rather than transcribing from tape or written notes. The story traces the development of a culture hero, from his early education by a grandfather, through a series of instructive adolescent mistakes, to the achievement of marriage and leadership in the tribe. But in refusing to romanticize camp circle life, Deloria also includes Iron Hawk's captivation by a seductive woman, and his return to the work of tribal continuance, when he is rescued by his son. A series of interpretive chapters follow the text to provide suggestions for literary criticism, as well as information on child-rearing and the symbolism of meadowlarks, fire, clothing, and eastward movement

The Dakota way of life by Ella Cara Deloria( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ella Deloria has led the world into the deepest recesses of our tribal life and the secret of its success. She has detailed with careful attention to the intimacies of the Dakota Oyate, the People. It is refreshing to experience the rebirth of tenets long ignored by the dominate society because it continues its claim to be superior." "She has given generously to all of us because her heart is truly Dakota and it tells her the ultimate gift is the gift of sharing. In the Dakota way for instance, the successful hunter upon returning to camp, gives the choicest parts of the meat to those who are the least capable of providing for themselves. The donor may declare empathetically, 'Nothing belongs to me personally, no more than the air we breathe. Wakan Tanka intends it to be shared by all." . . . "It is my hope and prayer that The Dakota Way of Life will be, for educators and institutions of higher learning, an essential motivator to build on the literary treasure that has been presented to us by Ella Deloria in such an unselfish manner. At the very least, the material should be required reading." --Hoksila Wasté (Sam Byrd)

2 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Blue Bird and her grandmother leave their family's camp to gather beans for the long, threatening winter, they inadvertently avoid the horrible fate that befalls the rest of the family.

Waterlily, published after Deloria's death and generally viewed as the masterpiece of her career, offers a capti
The sun dance of the Oglala Sioux by Ella Cara Deloria( Book )

1 edition published in 1929 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Disgust originated to prevent humans from eating poisonous food, but this simple safety mechanism has since evolved into a uniquely human emotion that dictates how people treat others, shapes cultural norms, and even has implications for mental and physical health. This book illuminates the science behind disgust, tackling such colorful topics as cannibalism, humor, and pornography to address larger questions including why sources of disgust vary among people and societies and how disgust influences individual personalities, daily lives, and values. It turns out that disgust underlies more than we realize, from political ideologies to the lure of horror movies

Deer women and elk men : the Lakota narratives of Ella Deloria by Julian Rice( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While Ella Deloria is known as a linguist and ethnologist and as author of the novel Waterlily, many readers may not know that she also wrote extensively in several Dakota dialects. Trained under Franz Boas, Deloria collected stories, autobiographies, and extensive descriptions of all aspects of Lakota life in the 1920s and 1930s, when the memories of her informants extended well back into camp circle days. She wrote the interviews from memory--first in Lakota, then in English, creating a literary extension of the oral tradition. In this first extended critical study of Deloria's work, Rice claims her as a major American writer. In discussing Deloria's Dakota Texts, Rice selects the theme of sexuality because it presents social and spiritual problems that are resolved in the narratives. In addition, a comparison of such issues in Lakota narratives and in familiar Shakespeare plays highlights Lakota values and serves to contextualize Deloria's work. English translations of the thirteen stories under discussion are provided in an appendix for ease of reference. Readers familiar with Deloria's writing will welcome this critical study, and new readers will gain an increased understanding of Lakota culture. It will be of value to scholars of literature, religion, and Native American culture
