Black Elk

Black Elk (Oglala Lakota Sioux, 1863-1950)

“It is the story of all life that is holy and is good to tell, and of us two-leggeds sharing in it with the four-leggeds and the wings of the air and all green things; for these are children of one mother and their father is one Spirit.”

  • From Black Elk Speaks (chapter 1), narrated by Black Elk and recorded/edited by John G. Neihardt. (University of Nebraska Press, 2014).
