About This Book:

Title: The Dull Knifes of Pine Ridge: A Lakota Odyssey


A century of Lakota history is told through the story of one family, the Dull Knifes of Pine Ridge.

Publisher Notes

Joe Starita tells the triumphant and moving story of a Lakota-Northern Cheyenne family. In 1878, the renowned Chief Dull Knife, who fought alongside Crazy Horse, escaped from forced relocation in Indian Territory and led followers on a desperate six-hundred-mile freedom flight back to their homeland. His son, George Dull Knife survived the Wounded Knee Massacre and later toured in Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show. Guy Dull Knife Sr. fought in World War I and took part in the Siege of Wounded Knee in 1973. Guy Dull Knife Jr. fought in Vietnam and is now an accomplished artist. Starita updates the Dull Knife family history in his new afterword for this Bison Books edition.

Industry Reviews

"...Starita paints an inspiring portrait of four generations of a family that has endured by balancing new realities with old cultural values. As Guy Dull Knife Jr. and his wife, Cora Yellow Elk, express it, they want their children to master both computers and the Eagle Dance."
"An entertaining and affecting story of a remarkable American Indian family....Starita tells the Dull Knife's story in remarkable and affectionate detail, maintaining a balance between the history of a people and the history of a family."
"Starita spent much of two-and-a-half years talking with the Guy Dull Knifes, senior and junior, and their friends, and examining family and archival documents. The end result is a moving book in which Chief Dull Knife and his descendants all shine."
