Following the life of a character from his birth to his death, nothing is held back about the culture of the Lakotah Sioux to the white man who were masters of the Great Plains near the Black Hills until the coming I found this paperback in a box of old books left by a neighbor who moved away. Following the life of a character from his birth to his death, nothing is held back about the culture of the Lakotah Sioux to the white man who were masters of the Great Plains near the Black Hills until the coming of the Anglo.

The reader is invited into the thoughts and practices, the history and politics of both intra and inter-tribal life. Looking intimately into sex, friendship, child rearing, hunting, warfare, horse training, family dynamics and many more aspects of Native-American life, this book presents a fascinating account of a sustainable way to live, though it was filled with adversity and sexual inequality.

The account is based on an actual series of events known from a "winter count"; a hide upon which was drawn the major events for a band of the tribe.

Author Ruth Beebe Hill had to flesh out the novel from this spare framework, doing so cooperatively with a native Lakotah, intending to create the world of the Sioux in such depth that readers can begin to experience a completely different outlook than that of Western culture. Those who look for an account of Indian - Anglo conflict will be disappointed. Hill educates us by having her characters ask the questions that we would like to have answered.

What is the reason for a certain practice, sungazing, for example? Characters in the book will think about it each in their own way and by doing so we gain some understanding of it from different angles. Effortlessly the reader is drawn in and soon feels a part of events. We learn that there are no contradictions to the Lakotah. What is the thing we moderns know as a thunderstorm? It is the "flying mystery".

What is most important? The truth. Only the scout who must of necessity travel alone will speak of what he has seen without this need for a witness. The imagery of the seasons and the moves of the band that accompany them are vivid.

The way of looking at the world and being in the world that the "Indians" knew passed away so recently and can never be recovered.

If you enjoyed the movie Dances With Wolves as I did, you will find Hanta Yo a wonderful way to fill out that glimpse of native-American life

Hanta Yo: An American Saga

It was published by Doubleday in amid some pretty savvy marketing that soon became a huge controversy. Hill and her Lakotah mentor Chunksa Yuta promoted the book as having taken her 30 years to write. Hill claimed to have researched extensively by both library research and actually visiting Reservations during those 3 decades. She claimed to have interviewed over 1, Native Americans. The author claimed to have written the book in English, then translated it into the ancient language, and then translated it back into English.
