Federal Writers' Project The WPA Guide to South Dakota


Rolling prairie grasslands in the east, surreal Badlands and lush Black Hills in the west: South Dakota is a state of vivid contrasts. In this classic and now-rare guide to Depression-era South Dakota, you can discover the historic byways and back roads of this beautiful state. Originally part of the American Guide Series, this book was written both to chronicle the physical and cultural landscape of the Mount Rushmore State and to employ out-of-work writers. The result is a snapshot of South Dakota as our grandparents knew it.

Lenna Kolash Child of the South Dakota Frontier


When her family homesteaded in 1915, seven-year-old Lenna O'Neill found her first love: the South Dakota prairie. Born in Wisconsin where her Irish immigrant father had come to study for the ministry, she discovered best friends in her pony Duke and her collie Fanny as she adapted to the harshness of prairie life. Eventually the hard times of drought drove the family back to live in a town, but she never forgot the wonders of her life as a child on the South Dakota prairie. Lenna recorded her life during these prairie years for her family. Lenna opens her account with a return to the homestead years later with her husband, William Kolash, and her children. The lone tree remaining by a dilapidated front gate, planted by Lenna and her father decades before, recalls voices echoing from the past and memories that rolled away the years. Child of the South Dakota Prairie is an edited version of her recollections, published as a tribute by her daughter, B. J. Farmer.

Bruce White Mni Sota Makoce


Much of the focus on the Dakota people in Minnesota rests on the tragic events of the 1862 U.S.–Dakota War and the resulting exile that sent the majority of the Dakota to prisons and reservations beyond the state&#39;s boundaries. But the true depth of the devastation of removal cannot be understood without a closer examination of the history of the Dakota people and their deep cultural connection to the land that is Minnesota. Drawing on oral history interviews, archival work, and painstaking comparisons of Dakota, French, and English sources, Mni Sota Makoce tells the detailed history of the Dakota people in their traditional homelands for at least hundreds of years prior to exile.<br /><br />&quot;Minnesota&quot; is derived from the Dakota phrase Mni Sota Makoce, Land Where the Waters Reflect the Clouds&mdash;and the people&#39;s roots here remain strong. Authors Gwen Westerman and Bruce White examine narratives of the people&#39;s origins, their associations with the land, and the seasonal round through key players and place names. They consider Dakota interactions with Europeans and offer an in-depth &quot;reading between the lines&quot; of historical documents&mdash;some of them virtually unknown&mdash;and treaties made with the United States, uncovering misunderstandings and outright deceptions that helped lead to war in 1862.<br /><br />Dakota history did not begin with the U.S.– Dakota War of 1862&mdash;nor did it end there. Mni Sota Makoce is, more than anything, a celebration of the Dakota people through their undisputed connection to this place, Minnesota, in the past, present, and future.

Colette Hyman Dakota Women's Work


A tiny pair of beaded deerskin moccasins, given to a baby in 1913, provides the starting point for this thoughtful examination of the work of Dakota women.<br /><br />Mary Eastman Faribault, born in Minnesota, made them almost four decades after the U.S.–Dakota War of 1862. This and other ornately decorated objects created by Dakota women&mdash;cradleboards, clothing, animal skin containers&mdash;served more than a utilitarian function. They tell the story of colonization, genocide, and survival.<br /><br />Author Colette Hyman traces the changes in the lives of Dakota women, starting before the arrival of whites and covering the fur trade, the years of treaties and shrinking lands, the brutal time of removal, starvation, and shattered families after 1862&mdash;and then the transition to reservation life, when missionaries and government agents worked to turn the Dakota into Christian farmers. The decorative work of Dakota women reflected all of this: native organic dyes and quillwork gave way to beading and needlework, items traditionally decorated for family gifts were produced to sell to tourists and white collectors, work on cradleboards and animal skin bags shifted to the ornamenting of hymnals and the creation of star quilts.<br /><br />Through it all, the work of Dakota women proclaims and retains Dakota identity: it is a testament to the endurance of Dakota traditions, to the survival of the Dakota in exile, and&mdash;most vividly&mdash;to the role of women in that survival.

Leslie Bow Partly Colored


Arkansas, 1943. The Deep South during the heart of Jim Crow-era segregation. A Japanese-American person boards a bus, and immediately is faced with a dilemma. Not white. Not black. Where to sit?By elucidating the experience of interstitial ethnic groups such as Mexican, Asian, and Native Americans&#8212;groups that are held to be neither black nor white&#8212;Leslie Bow explores how the color line accommodated&#8212;or refused to accommodate&#8212;&#8220;other&#8221; ethnicities within a binary racial system. Analyzing pre- and post-1954 American literature, film, autobiography, government documents, ethnography, photographs, and popular culture, Bow investigates the ways in which racially &#8220;in-between&#8221; people and communities were brought to heel within the South&#8217;s prevailing cultural logic, while locating the interstitial as a site of cultural anxiety and negotiation.Spanning the pre- to the post- segregation eras, Partly Colored traces the compelling history of &#8220;third race&#8221; individuals in the U.S. South, and in the process forces us to contend with the multiracial panorama that constitutes American culture and history.

Gwenyth Swain Little Crow/Taoyateduta


The Plains Indian Wars of the nineteenth century garnered enduring fame for certain Indian leaders, their names echoing powerfully even today: Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, Red Cloud. Just as significant but less often mentioned is Taoyateduta, known to whites as Little Crow, the reluctant leader of Dakota warriors during the U.S.–Dakota War of 1862, the opening salvo of the U.S.–Indian Wars.<br /><br />In this carefully researched biography of the Dakota leader, the first ever written for children, author Gwenyth Swain presents a compelling portrait of the leader, warrior, and politician at the center of the Dakota War of 1862.<br /><br />Beginning with Taoyateduta&#39;s childhood along the Mississippi River near present-day St. Paul, this biography explores his life in the Big Woods, his wanderings west from the Mdewakanton Dakota&#39;s traditional home, his leadership of his people when they were forced to sign over their land to white settlers, and his role during the war of 1862. Hemmed in on a narrow reservation, frustrated by broken treaties, angered by dishonest agents and traders, and nearly starved because of crop failures and late annuity payments, Dakota Indians attacked white settlers living on the Indians&#39; former homelands in southwestern Minnesota. Taoyateduta agreed to lead the battles, knowing that the U.S. government&#39;s response would be swift and terrible. In retribution for the thirty-eight-day war, thirty-eight Dakota men were hanged, thousands were imprisoned, and the Dakota people were expelled from the state.<br /><br />Taoyateduta&#39;s story brings to life the painful experience of the Dakota as they lost their land and their livelihood&mdash;and as some chose to adopt white ways while others fought back, with disastrous consequences. Little Crow: Leader of the Dakota offers a clear and accessible account of both the man who led the Dakota into war and the causes behind that wrenching conflict.

Linda M. Clemmons The Conflicted Mission


From the mid-1830s to the 1860s, the missionaries sent to Minnesota by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) wrote thousands of letters to their supervisors and supporters claiming success in converting the Dakota people. But author Linda M. Clemmons reveals that the reality of the situation was far more conflicted than what those written records would suggest.<br /><br />In fact, in the rough Minnesota territory, missionaries often found themselves looking to the Dakota for support. The missionaries and their wives struggled to define what it meant to convert and &quot;civilize&quot; Dakota people. And, although many scholars depict missionaries as working hand in hand with the federal government, Clemmons reveals discord over the Dakota people&#39;s treatment, especially after the U.S.–Dakota War of 1862, when many missionaries spoke out against exile.<br /><br />The missionaries found that work with the Dakota was rarely as heroic, romantic, or successful as what they read about in the evangelical press, but, at the same time, they themselves painted a rosier picture of their own work.
