By James R. Walker, Elaine A. Jahner. By James R. The project that led to the publication of Lakota Myth (1983) and two other volumes of James R. Walker’s previously unpublished manuscripts-Lakota Belief and Ritual (1980) and Lakota Society (1982)-began with a discussion at Indiana University one spring day in 1975.

This book is written by one of the authorities on the Lakota and has written a number of highly praised books about them. I consider him to be one of the top two authorities in what is most often called, academia. I have spoken with him several times, at length, on the phone, and he is quite gracious and forth-coming with his knowledge.

Lakota belief and ritual, James R. Go.

James R. Walker was a physician to the Pine Ridge Sioux from 1896 to 1914. His accounts of this time, taken from his personal papers, reveal much about Lakota life and culture. This third volume of previously unpublished material from the Walker collection presents his work on Lakota myth and legend. This edition includes classic examples of Lakota oral literature, narratives that were known only to a few Oglala holy men, and Walker's own literary cycle based on all he had learned about Lakota myth. Lakota Myth is an indispensable source for students of comparative literature, religion, and mythology, as well as those interested in Lakota culture.
