Lakota Culture, World Economy (Paperback)Kathleen Ann Pickering (author)
- We can order this
Kathleen Ann Pickering weaves these compelling first-person accounts with broader theoretical considerations to create a nuanced ethnographic tapestry of life today on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations. Particularly enlightening are her consideration of the far-reaching economic significance of traditional Lakota households and her assessment of how Lakota identity-shaped by values, gender, ethnicity, race, and class-is inextricably bound up with the modern reservation economy.

"[Pickering's] operative question is-if the Lakota of Rosebud and Pine Ridge are so poor, how do they make a living? In pursuit of answers, she leaves a trail of remarkable observations by Lakota individuals concerning the nexus of activities that create a Lakota economy."-Plains Anthropologist * Plains Anthropologist *
"Pickering's book makes an important contribution to this emerging literature by exploring the linkages between culture and economy on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations in South Dakota."-Robin M. Leichenko, Journal of Regional Science -- Robin M. Leichenko * Journal of Regional Science *
