The Man Who Knew the Medicine : The Teachings of Bill Eagle Feather
Author Henry Niese met Bill Eagle Feather during a sweatlodge ceremony preceding a Sun Dance on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in 1975. That was the beginning of the relationship between student and teacher that is captured with humor and respect in _The Man Who Knew the Medicine_. Niese brings readers along on his journey from outsider to initiate to elder, a transformation guided by Bill Eagle Feather. He describes sacred traditions such as the sweatlodge, the _yuwipi_, and the powerful Sioux Sun Dance, which Niese participated in for 16 years on the Rosebud reservation. His firsthand accounts provide a portal into a sacred reality as well as insight into the struggles of the Indian community to perpetuate its values and religious truths in the context of contemporary America. Above all, _The Man Who Knew the Medicine_ offers the opportunity to experience the unique personality of a fascinating individual and respected healer through the eyes of a friend and a student.
