Dakota language errors

I love his stories, it would help to consult a Dakota speaker as many of Charles Eastman’s Dakota words are incorrectly pronounced. Making our beautiful language sound silly.

Interesting glimpse into Sioux oral tradition

Having read Charles Eastman's "Indian Boyhood,:" From the Deep Woods to Civilization," and "The Soul of an Indian" I'm hooked on this author. He was born and raised in the traditional Sioux way, never having seen a white man until he was 15, then went on to learn English, go to several colleges including Dartmouth and Boston Medical School, then returned to his people to help care for them. By this time, they had been placed on the Pine Ridge reservation, and his witness of the Battle of Wounded Knee was one of the primary sources for "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee"
