Based on a true family history, this is the story of Little Dove, a Lakota girl captured by whites at an early age, who adapted to the white world and learned to survive while preserving her Native American spiritual traditions in secret. Follow her as she marries and moves to a plantation near Greenwood, Mississippi in the old South just prior to the Civil War. From the back cover: Little Dove Soars! “You will come away with a deep feeling of the Native American Spirit toward life. This book is definitely Good Medicine for the soul.” This story takes the reader on a fascinating journey into other times and places. Little Dove’s village was destroyed by the Cavalry and she was captured. She survived the Native American Holocaust by adapting to the White world. She went from tipi life to living on a plantation near Greenwood, Mississippi, where Kathryn Stockett’’s popular story ‘The Help’ was filmed. Sakina Blue-Star is the great-granddaughter of Little Dove. This book is a combination of family memoir, inspiration and actual messages received from the spirit of her Great Grandmother Little Dove and her remarkable daughter, Sara, Sakina’s grandmother. Read of adventure, humor, romance and Native American wisdom teachings; of Little Dove’s life in a Lakota village, her life at a fort, her marriage to a remarkable man with a double life; their move to the South, helping slaves escape, the KKK, and surviving the Civil War. You will also hear tales of reincarnation, shape-shifting, space-ship contact, visits to Chief Sitting Bull, an appearance of the Sacred White Buffalo-Calf Woman, Hopi villages in Arizona, and Ceremony in sacred Sedona, Arizona. All are part of the kaleidoscope that makes up this wonderful story.
