You can accept or reject Lame Deer's so I think I have wound up reading this book 6 times. You can accept or reject Lame Deer's social critique on the merits of his education, but you can't reject them on the basis of ideology or interest. Not the grumpy old Indian, One Feather, whom I met on my only successful meditation. For a long time I have wondered about the connectedness I feel inside with the Native American Indian.
I've never had the desire to visit America although I am slowly changing my mind - I guess that's allowed. Strange that I have never wanted to see the country a real live self-confessed witch on the Isle of Man told me that had s As I read this book I felt I was being taken along a journey by an old Indian.
Strange that I have never wanted to see the country a real live self-confessed witch on the Isle of Man told me that had some connection for me. What she said was that there was someone over there who will be important to me or will have some strong meaning in my life. I can't remember exactly the words she used I was 18 at the time - long time ago!
However that does not belong to this entry. So here, in Lame Deer's book, we have an old Indian who is willing to take the reader on a journey of what it was like to be an Indian many years ago and how the values and skills known to this Native American race have been eroded through oppression and discrimination. This is not a book about self-pity or loathing or anger.

In fact one gets the sense of a generous spirit who is trying to talk to and counsel humankind in the benefits of caring for the Earth that gives us life and sustenance. Lame Deer takes us on a journey that gives us glimpses of himself as he goes through his life. He makes no claims to being from a greater race or creed than anyone else but one gets the sense that spiritually he is far more advanced than the White Man who came to convert and 'civilise' the Red Man.
There is also humour throughout the book, Lame Deer's own individual sense of humour that is both generous and accommodating of difference. I have marked several passages in this book to go back to. I was going to write a few of them in here but I think the best thing I can do is to direct you to the book itself.
It's worth reading, even if only to make friends with an old Indian. Nov 06, Jason rated it really liked it. Lame Deer was many things in his life. He was an outlaw, lawman, rodeo clown, and Indian medicine man. The men decided to collaborate together to write a book about the life of Lame Deer. Lame Deer himself was a Sioux medicine man trained in the ways of the old ones. This book is gripping and humorous. The first part recounts many funny personal stories about Lame Deer's life and his run-ins with the Lame Deer was many things in his life.
The first part recounts many funny personal stories about Lame Deer's life and his run-ins with the law, his personal feelings about the present state of the US, and his own thoughts about what it means to be an Indian. The latter part of the book focuses on ceremonies like the sundance, sweatlodge gatherings and also discussion about the sacred pipe.
Lame Deer explains how important symbolism is to the Indian and also explains a good deal of Indian mythology in the latter part of the book which helps the average reader get inside the minds of these people and their beliefs. Throughout this book the reader will come to develop an emotional affinity with Lame Deer. You find yourself feeling how he does about pollution, broken promises, and disregard for sacred beliefs. Sadly, we are also told much about how Indians faired badly at the hands of white guns, diseases and white "instant gratification" attitudes.

I don't think the book was perfect because Erdoes was not an actual writer at the time although he did a decent job putting the book in literary form. I suppose he should at least be lauded for helping us to interpret Indian mysteries. My only major gripe about this book was that it wasn't longer. Mar 22, Richard Reese rated it it was amazing. His government-issued name was John Fire.
He was born some time between and , and died in His parents were of the last generation to be born wild and free. He never saw a white man until he was five.

Sons destined to become medicine men were often removed from school by their families, because schooling was harmful to the growth of someone walking a spiritual path. One father drove away truancy officers with a shotgun.
For medicine men, the skills of reading and writing had absolutely no value. When Lame Deer was 17, his mother died, and the family fell apart. The white world was closing in, making it hard for his father to survive as a rancher. He gave his children some livestock and wished them good luck. By that time, the buffalo were dead, their land was gone, many lived on reservations, and the good old days for the Lakota were behind them.
The frog-skinners were bred to be consumers, not human beings, so they were not enjoyable company. Lame Deer spent maybe 20 years wandering.

During World War II, just before Normandy, he was thrown out of the Army when they discovered that he was 39, too old. Soon after, he abandoned the frog-skin world and became a full time Indian, walking on the sacred path of a medicine man. For the Lakota, the Black Hills were the most sacred place in their world. To retain possession of them, they surrendered much of what became Montana, Wyoming, and the Dakotas. The Lakota were horrified by the behavior of these civilized Christians.
