Abstract:

"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).
