In the 1930s, John Neihardt, a poet and a chronicler of the old West and Native American folkways, spent many hours with Black Elk, one of the most revered holy men of the Oglala Sioux. The result was Black Elk Speaks, a book that has enthralled spiritual seekers from every tradition for more than 70 years. In his own words, Black Elk tells of the trials and sufferings, as well as the triumphs and joys that the Sioux experienced after the coming of white settlers. His inspiring words, which tell not just the story of his people but also of his hope for humankind and respect for the earth, have entered the hearts of people all over the world. An inspired, authentic reading by Fred Contreras gives voice to Black Elk’s impassioned plea for all people to live in harmony with the earth and its Creator.
