Explorations in Ethnic Studies
Elaine Goodale Eastman was a white woman from the East who decided early in her life that her “mission” was to educate the Sioux Indians of the Dakotas. The memoirs, published in 1978, were written in the thirties from notes and diaries kept by the writer from 1885-1891. Thus, there are three distinct periods of time the contemporary reader must consider.
