During the winter of 1947, Black Elk, the Oglala Sioux holy man, related to Joseph Brown seven of the sacred Oglala traditions, including such revered rites as "The Keeping of the Soul," "The Rite of Purification," and "Preparing for Womanhood." The San Francisco Chronicle calls The Sacred Pipe "a valuable contribution to American Indian literature."
