5.0 von 5 Sternen Lakota Woman, coming back to the future! 22. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Lakota Woman is a book worth reading. No romantic, no ado, just the real world our native american brothers and sisters have to live in every day. Creates a room for understanding, wanting to join the AIM, even though I'm "white"! Telling about an american way of life the natives have to indure every day, and the "real" americans don't like to hear mentioned too loud. A breathtaking book, couldn't put it down.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Growing Up Indian and Rediscovering Her People 24. Januar 2000
In this 1990 autobiography Mary Crow Dog relates her life growing up on a Sioux reservation and her involvement with the American Indian Movement during the 1970s. There is another writer's name, Richard Erdoes, next to hers on the cover which makes me assume that she did not write this herself. Perhaps that accounts for the style, which is overly simplistic as the book seems to be targeted towards young adults.
However, I have very scant knowledge of American Indians even though they
have always fascinated me. And that is why I enjoyed this book completely. It's feels true and real and its starkness only underlines the story which, in reality, is not only Mary Crow Dog's personal story, but that of all American Indians in our country.
We are right there with her in the one room shack she was raised in with 8 other people in North Dakota, a house without electricity, plumbing or a single modern convenience. As there were no television or any connection with the outside world, she thought that everyone lived like this and had a happy childhood, warm and secure in the bosom a loving family.
And then she was sent off to boarding school run by the Jesuits. Here, the children were beaten, humiliated, punished by being sent into isolation, and forced into a mold that was foreign to them. It was the 60's then, and she rebelled, leaving school and joining forces with other Native American teenagers who drank and shoplifted and lived on the fringe of society.
Then the American Indian Movement came along and she joined, identifying with her people's struggles and learning the history. She was at the siege of the National Indian Affairs building in Washington, DC and then again at the 71-day takeover of Wounded Knee in the 1970s.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sioux woman's brave path to strength through trial 20. August 1997
Born on a Sioux reservation in the Dakotas to a wayward father and a mother who left the traditional life for Christianity, Mary Crow Dog overcomes the difficulties of a young Native American girl to become a leader in her people's movement. This autobiography follows her early days in a Christian school and culminates with her protesting and giving birth at the 1973 Wounded Knee standoff between the troubled Lakota Sioux and the US government. Written in a conversational style, the book is tragic and, at times, funny as Crow Dog demonstrates her incredible strength and sense of humour in the face of seemingly unstoppable adversity. A stunning read

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exzellent 4. Dezember 2012
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ein wunderbares Buch, sehr tolerant geschrieben, sehr informativ aber überhaupt nicht aufdringlich. Auch meine Schüler (8-10.Klasse) liebten das Buch. Eine Aufmunterung zu mehr Natürlichkeit und dem Vertrauen auf Intuition.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent read 24. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Having to read this text for a university class, I initially did not expect to enjoy it as throughly as I actually did - I had the mindset that I would just read it once, just because I had to, and that would be that. Yet I enjoyed this book completely, with its realism and frank, yet emotional, portrayal of Indian life. I would recommend it to all; its simpistic style makes it accessible to younger readers. Whether you are interested in Indian culture or not, I guarantee you will be by the final page.

Lakota Woman is a great autobiography which shows all of the hard times for American Indians during the 1970's in order to gain the freedom to which they have today.It is a unique piece of American Indian literature, a story of dying,crying, determination to beat the white man system and not the white man himself, and the cruelties they had to indure for their freedom and culture. Lakota Woman takes you right to the boarding schools that the young American Indians were thrown into by the government in hopes to change their ways of life. It will make you sick but yet happy that it is no longer, when reading about all the in depth cruel thing the indians suffered through. Such as the sterilization of pregenant mothers without their consent. The Indians were able to get leadership through the American Indians Movement(AIM), which joined all indian tribes together as one. "They called us the new indians. Hell, we are the old indians. The landlords of this continent, coming to collect the rent." This attitude lead them right into the battle of Wounded Knee which took the lives of many."Two thousand came to Wounded Knee in 1973. One stayed." It is definitely a must read autobiography.
