If there is anything I can say on Virginia Irving Armstrong's collected words of the plains Indian tribes chiefs, braves /warriors and holy men, it will be that she truly tried capture each narrated spoken word for word in the spoken context which is crucially important for the full meaning to be carried correctly from chief, brave, to holy man or medicine man however she has a little arrogant attitude in seeming to think and I quote: There are some important and interesting aspects of Indian life...For an Indian/brave all of the life is important and interesting, I don’t bother with the foot notes because these are the narrate words of the great chiefs, braves/warriors & holy men.
