An Examination of Dakota Mythology

Yankton Dakota writer Zitkala-Sa's "Schooldays of an Indian Girl" and Standing Rock Dakota author Susan Power's "First Fruits" both include many references to Dakota (or Sioux) mythology, beliefs, and customs. This project will take a look into some of the stories, themes, and ideas behind Sioux mythology and discover what sort of significance they hold.
