South Dakota American Indian Authors Reading List
The following publications are written predominantly by American Indian authors from South Dakota. In a few cases, books were added which non-Indians compiled or Indians outside South Dakota but contained the words or biographies of South Dakota Indian people. Selections were made based upon the compiler's personal knowledge of Indian authors from the state. While most of the books pertain to Indian peoples of the Dakotas, some place them in a broader American Indian context.American Indian Authors (.pdf)
