Since the Indians had no writing, history begins for each tribe with its discovery by white men. Some tribes were discovered in the early sixteenth century, others not until Lewis and Clark opened the Northwest in the early nineteenth century, so that the length of the recorded history varies between one tribe and another according to the region." Since our books are from very early writers they are of special historical significance

THE SOUL OF THE INDIAN
CHARLES ALEXANDER EASTMAN
Charles Eastman was born in 1858 on the Santee Reservation near Redwood Falls, Minnesota.
Hed died in 1939. He earned a M.D. degree at Boston University, 1890, and a month after graduating from medical school treated the injuries of survivors of Wounded Knee.
He states"I have attempted to paint the religious life of the typical
American Indian as it was before he knew the white man. I
have long wished to do this, because I cannot find that it has ever
been seriously, adequately, and sincerely done. The religion of
the Indian is the last thing about him that the man of another race
will ever understand.
First, the Indian does not speak of these deep matters so long
as he believes in them, and when he has ceased to believe he speaks
inaccurately and slightingly.
