Author Interview--Pekka Hämäläinen (Lakota America) Part 2

Hello H-CivWar readers,

today we feature part 2 of our interview with Pekka Hämäläinen to talk about his new book Lakota America: A New History of Indigenous Power, published by Yale University Press.

It is striking that something like Little Bighorn, which has attracted so much attention, is absent from the Lakota's own writing. Much of your book is devoted to the nineteenth century, what do the Lakota focus on and what do they emphasize in their histories for that period?
