Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Although Black Elk Speaks was first published in 1932, it was not until the 1960s that the book gained widespread popularity and elicited the interest of serious scholars of literature, ethnology, and religion. DeMallie provides in this study a resource for further investigation of European influences on Lakota culture as well as the raw material for analysis of Neihardt's role in the final production of Black Elk Speaks.
