520 |a"Anthropologists, linguists, ethnomusicologists, and other scholars of the American Indian will welcome this study of the Pine Ridge Lakota people and their religion. Of prime importance in this volume are the author's translations and exegeses of Lakota sacred song texts. Powers, one of the rare linguists who is fluent in the language he discusses, brings a high level of scholarship to both description and analysis. In readable fashion he traces the birth of sacred language to philosophical discourse among medicine men, converse between them and their followers, and prayers to the supernaturals"--Jacket.
