'A splendid new addition to Native American fiction' - Louis Owens, author of "Nightland". 'Interesting and informative' - "South Dakota History". 'An intriguing selection...Aside from the stories, which alone would make this book worth reading, the editors have provided an excellent introductory sketch of La Flesche's life' - "Annals of Iowa".Born on the Omaha Reservation in 1857, Francis La Flesche was raised in the years when federal policy encouraged Indians to assimilate. He learned English at a mission school, acquiring a fluency that prepared him for a career that moved between tribal and national concerns. Most of the stories in "Ke-ma-ha" have never before been published.Written to bring public attention to the Omahas, they tell us about that culture in ways that anthropological treatises cannot. Francis La Flesche collaborated with anthropologist Alice C. Fletcher on "The Omaha Tribe" and "A Study of Omaha Indian Music". These titles, as well as La Flesche's autobiographical "The Middle Five: Indian Schoolboys of the Omaha Tribe", are available as Bison Books. James W.Parins, a professor of English at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, is the author of "John Rollin Ridge" (Nebraska 1991).
Daniel F. Littlefield Jr., director of the American Native Press Archives, wrote "Alex Posey: Creek Poet, Journalist, and Humorist" (Nebraska 1992) and edited Posey's "Fus Fixico Letters" (Nebraska 1993).
