Dragonfly Weather (Paperback)

Special Order


Lois Red Elk writes her poetry from the perspective of a Dakota speaker: her words echo a relative Lakota dialect. In both dialects, the images and blood memory are the same. Her narratives are personal and descriptive of a life lived as a Dakota on the Fort Peck reservation. Memories of her relatives provide words for her poems, which are filled with old wisdom.
