These thirteen essays, taken from the pages of South Dakota History, the quarterly journal of the South Dakota State Historical Society, explore modern American Indian political and cultural life. In five themed sections, contributors examine the tremendous changes the Sioux experienced during the twentieth century. The political and social ramifications of land heirship, the damming of the Missouri River, and shifting federal policies are among topics discussed. Health care, recreation, and education are viewed through the windows of a psychiatric facility, reservation rodeos, and the experiences of a day-school teacher. The tumultuous build-up to the violence at Wounded Knee in 1973 is covered as well, along with issues surrounding land allotment and efforts to eradicate tuberculosis. Editor Richmond L. Clow contributes an introduction and afterword providing context for the essays and suggesting avenues for further study. Contributors: Harry H. Anderson, Roger Bromert, Richmond L. Clow, Joshua Garrett-Davis, Frederick E. Hoxie, Michael L. Lawson, Allison Fuss Mellis, Akim D. Reinhardt, Scott Riney, Steven C. Schulte, Don Southerton, Laura Woodworth-Ney.

Boulder Effigy Sites in South Dakota

History, Description, and Evaluation

This report summarizes current archaeological and ethnographic information on stone alignments, also known as petroforms, in South Dakota. Many of the sites listed as "alignments" in the South Dakota State Archaeological Research Center data base can be reclassified more specifically, for example as stone circle sites or historic foundations. Others have been included in the "alignment" category for want of specific site type choices on the site recording form, including hunting features, eagle trapping pits, and vision quest stations. Features that can be considered true boulder alignments fall into three general categories: effigies, medicine wheels, and geometrics. These appear to have a general Algonkian-Siouan origin and to date to within the last several centuries. The effigies and medicine wheels appear to have been used variously as shrines, astronomical/calendrical devices, vision quest sites, and memorials. It is recommended that non-evaluated sites be evaluated and considered for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
