The Lakota Way: Stories and Lessons for Living

by Joseph M. Marshall

Rich with storytelling, history, and folklore, The Lakota Way expresses the heart of Native American philosophy and imparts the path to a fulfilling and meaningful life. Joseph Marshall is a member of the Sicunga Lakota Sioux and has dedicated his entire life to the wisdom he learned from his elders. Here he focuses on the twelve core qualities that are crucial to the Lakota way of living-bravery, fortitude, generosity, wisdom, respect, honor, perseverance, love, humility, sacrifice, truth, and compassion. Whether teaching a lesson on respect imparted by the mythical Deer Woman or the humility embodied by the legendary Lakota leader Crazy Horse, The Lakota Way  offers a fresh outlook on spirituality and ethical living.

Joseph Marshall III is a historian, motivational speaker and Lakota storyteller. He is the award-winning author of ten books, including In the Footsteps of Crazy HorseThe Lakota Way, and The Journey of Crazy Horse. His first language is Lakota, he handcrafts primitive Lakota bows and arrows, and he is a specialist in wilderness survival.
