Book description:
Santee Dakota Indian Legends brings together for the first time an outstanding collection of tales from the traditional world of a remarkable and visionary Siouan tribe. Stories recounted by eight perceptive authors are here presented for both enlightenment and entertainment, some in Dakota as well as in English and many first published in Oaye, or Word Carrier a rare nineteenth-century American Indian newspaper. Included are stories that were the first printed tellings by native Dakota speakers of their own people’s narratives in their own language.
Also included are biographical sketches of all the authors:

Julia Laframboise – the first mixed-blood Dakota woman to translate and record Dakota legends.

Michel (Michael) Renville – a gifted mixed-blood Dakota who preserved many long tales of his people.

Full-blood Rev. David Grey Cloud and mixed-blood Rev. James Garvie, who translated numerous Dakota stories drawn from their own native heritage.

Henry G. Allanson – a mixed-blood Dakota who helped save the Sisseton-Wahpeton legacy.

European-Americans Stephen R. Riggs, a prominent Presbyterian missionary to the Dakota who was also a noted scholar of Dakota literature and culture, and his daughter

Martha Riggs Morris, who grew up among the Dakota at the Lac qui Parle Mission on the banks of the Minnesota River, and

Mary H Eastman, wife of artist-soldier Seth Eastman and on of the first people to write down and publish detailed Dakota legends.
