Description

The Lakotas and the Black Hills: The Struggle for Sacred Ground is a 238-page history of the people known as the Lakota and their legal struggle for the return of their sacred land, the Black Hills. This book explores the relationship between the Lakota people and the Black Hills, their homeland and spiritual centre; chronicles their fight to preserve it in the face of conflict with white settlers in the nineteenth century; and traces the legal struggle in which the Lakota set out to prove the lands were unjustly taken from them, which included a Supreme Court decision in their favour.
