Vine Deloria, Jr. (1933-2005) Hunkpapa Sioux

The foremost Indian Law scholar of the 20th Century, he became a powerful, thunderous voice and critic of the politics of American Law as it applies to Indigenous Peoples.  The son of Christian missionaries in the Northern Plains, his special achievements brought about serious study of the legal and historical past of his relatives, the Sioux.
