If he would be at least a descendant of Red Cloud. Untold in the title makes it sound like he has a real scoop or at least insider information. Untold - this has been told before, very disappointing.
Same old stuff
He could have pronounced the words correctly. It hurts my ears when he says Lakota words.
I would just rewrite it with Lakota writers and speakers.
I thought this was going to be more of a Red Cloud autobiography or at least present another viewpoint BUT instead it is a bias look of the Oglala Sioux and full of inaccuracies. For example in Chapter 2 it reads they are patriarchal which Russell Means (an Oglala) has argued and said: My People, Lakota, also known as Sioux Indians, are Matriarchal... and explains why. In all honesty, I can't get past the 2nd chapter, it infuriates me so much I am returning it. And yes I am an Oglala and the Red Clouds are my relatives.
