Up For Sale Today is. My People The Sioux remains a landmark in Native American literature, among the first books about Native Americans written from the Native American point of view. Luther Standing Bear (December 1868 February 20, 1939) Óta Kté or "Plenty Kill" also known as Mat? Or "Standing Bear" was an Oglala Lakota chief notable in American history as a Native American author, educator, philosopher, and actor of the twentieth century.
Standing Bear fought to preserve Lakota heritage and sovereignty and was at the forefront of a Progressive movement to change government policy toward Native Americans. Standing Bear was one of a small group of Lakota leaders of his generation, such as Gertrude Bonnin, and Charles Eastman, who were born and raised in the oral traditions of their culture, educated in white culture, and wrote significant historical accounts of their people and history in English. Luthers experiences in early life, the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, Wild Westing with Buffalo Bill, and life on government reservations present a unique view of a Native American during the Progressive Era in American history.Standing Bears commentaries on Native American culture and wisdom educated the American public, deepened public awareness, and created popular support to change government policies toward Native American peoples. Luther Standing Bear helped create the popular twentieth-century image that Native American culture is holistic and respectful of nature; his classic commentaries appear in college-level reading lists in anthropology, literature, history, and philosophy, and constitute a legacy and treasury of Native American wisdom.
