“In this rangy, ambitious work, Rani-Henrik Andersson and David C. Posthumus center LakȟÓta voices, language, and conceptual worlds to craft a stunning narrative that takes readers on a journey far removed from old familiar histories. LakȟÓta: An Indigenous History is a remarkable and important contribution, one not to be missed.”—Philip J. Deloria, author of Becoming Mary Sully: Toward an American Indian Abstract

“This book surpasses earlier histories of the Lakȟóta. With its meticulous attention to the distinctive cultural and complex political foundations of the Lakȟóta, it sets a new standard in Plains Indian scholarship.”—Mark van de Logt, author of War Party in Blue: Pawnee Scouts in the U.S. Army

“Lakȟóta: An Indigenous History brilliantly contextualizes winter counts and other Lakȟóta sources to reveal a Native point of view on events commonly interpreted through a Western lens.”—Candace S. Greene, coeditor of The Year the Stars Fell: Lakota Winter Counts at the Smithsonian

"In revealing how Lakhota traditions illuminate this people's perspectives on their own past, Rani-Henrik Andersson and David C. Posthumus have rendered a clear, comprehensive exploration of Lakhota experience, initiative, and endurance. Lakhota: An Indigenous History is a rare achievement."—Louis S. Warren, author of God’s Red Son: The Ghost Dance Religion and the Making of Modern America
