Abstract:

In the spring of 1834 Samuel W. Pond and his brother Gideon built a cabin near Cloud Man's village of the Dakotaa Indians on the shore of Lake Calhoun -- now part of Minneapolis, Minnesota -- intending to preach Christianity to the Indians. The brothers were to spend nearly 20 years learning the Dakota language and observing how the Indians lived. In the 1860s and 1870s, after the Dakota had fought a disastrous war with the whites who had taken their land, Samuel Pond recorded his recollections of the Indians "to show what manner of people the Dakotas were ... while they still retained the customs of their ancestors". Pond's work, first published in 1908, is now considered a classic, "unrivaled today for its discussion of Dakota material culture and social, political, religious, and economic institutions," writes historian Gary Clayton Anderson in his introduction to this reprint edition. Anderson, the author of Little Crow, Spokesman for the Sioux (MHS Press, 1986), discusses Pond's career and the effects of his background or his work. -- from cover.
