Zitkala-Sa

From Back Cover

Early in the century a manificent Sioux woman named Zitkala-Sa published these legends that she learned during her childhood on the Yankton Reservation. Her eastern eduction developed a writing talent that was put to good use in recording from oral tradition the exploits of Iktomi the trickster, Eya the glutton, the Dragon Fly, the Blood Clot boy, and other magical and mysterious figures, human and animal, known to the Sioux. Until her death in 1938, Zitkala-Sa stood between two cultures as preserver and translator.

Zitkala-Sa (also known as Gertrude Bonnin) later published the largely autobiographical American Indian Stories.
