A timeless and inspiring autobiographical account of the great religious and historical vision of an American Indian healer, Black Elk Speaks has become a revered spiritual classic for all peoples everywhere. Black Elk (1863-1950) was a Lakota Sioux Indian with a privileged insight into the great changes taking place among his people in their native land. His vision occurred during the period just before the Little Big Horn massacre. His words were transcribed at the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1930 by John G. Neihardt, a writer and critic with an intense and compassionate interest in American Indian culture and religion. Black Elk specifically designated Neihardt to record his words. These words convey Native American history from the 'inside.' They are as well a religious testament to the enduring spirit of America's native people.
