Even as Tatekeya's trial is proceeding, his people are suffering from the flooding of the Missouri River, an event precipitated by the construction of new hydropower dams upriver from the Crow Creek Reservation. In "Circle of Dancers", Aurelia Blue, John Tatekeya's lover of nearly ten years, is pregnant by another man. She and the baby's father Jason Big Pipe fight for survival in the face of the political and economic consequences of the destruction of the Mni Sosa, one of the greatest environmental disasters to strike the Northern Plains.

Cook-Lynn exposes the colonialism that works both overtly and covertly to silence and diminish Native Americans, supported by a rhetoric of reconciliation, assimilation, and multiculturalism

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
