About the Book: Mary Crow Dog (also Mary Brave Bird) was born on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Rebelling against the aimless drinking, punishing missionary school, narrow strictures for women, and violence, she joined the new movement of tribal pride sweeping Native American communities in the sixties and seventies. She gave birth at the occupation of Wounded Knee, and eventually married Leonard Crow Dog, the American Indian Movement's chief medicine man, who revived the sacred but outlawed Ghost Dance. This oral history is her life, her struggle, her triumphs, but also a rarely told story of Native Americans in modern history.
