Event Description:


In 1977, Dorothy Black Crow traded worlds from mainstream America to a foreign country within the United States: the Great Sioux Nation. Though it hardly took any time for her to meet-marry-and move with Selo Black Crow from Ann Arbor, Michigan to Pine Ridge Res, South Dakota, it took years for her to fit into the vastly different Lakota culture.

Dorothy Black Crow is an award-winning poet, creative nonfiction and mystery novelist, former professor of literature at Oglala Lakota College and the University of Michigan, Dorothy Black Crow explores the reality of life on the Pine Ridge Reservation from her own experiences as a woman married to a Lakota Sundance leader, as well as from an outsider's perspective.
