American Indian Stories, first published in 1921, is a collection of childhood stories, allegorical fiction, and an essay. One of the most famous Sioux writers and activists of the modern era, Zitkala-Sa (Gertrude Bonnin) recalled legends and tales from oral tradition and used experiences from her life and community to educate others about the Yankton Sioux. Determined, controversial, and visionary, she creatively worked to bridge the gap between her own culture and mainstream American society and advocated for Native rights on a national level. Susan Rose Dominguez provides a new introduction to this edition. Zitkala-Sa (1876-1938) is also the author of Old Indian Legends and Dreams and Thunder: Stories, Poems, and "The Sun Dance Opera," both published by the University of Nebraska Press. Susan Rose Dominguez is an affiliate scholar of history at Oberlin College.
