Standing In The Light: A Lakota Way of Seeing
Author: Severt Young Bear
Author: R. D. Theisz

Young Bear, a Lakota elder who died as this book went to press, was a prominent teacher and traditional singer; educator Theisz, his white adoptive brother, was a member of Young Bear's Porcupine Singers. They collaborated in an unusual way.

To be in keeping with his people's oral traditions, Young Bear, though highly literate, chose to record his ideas on tape; Theisz then organized the comments and edited the transcripts into conversational prose.

Young Bear related the myths and history of his people and reflected on the spiritual meanings inherent to their traditions. He also vividly described events in which he had participated--notably, the 1972 occupation of Wounded Knee.
