The core spiritual teachings of the Lakota as passed down from through the generations.
Full Description

"When we began our search for consultants for Into the West, we were looking for individuals with a deep knowledge of the culture and history of the Lakota people. In Joe Marshall, we found that person, but the happy surprise was that we also found a poet, a storyteller, and an educator who led us through challenging terrain with great patience and wisdom."
—Michael Wright, executive in charge of production, Into The West 


Native American lineage holders have long been cautious about sharing their spiritual truths because the essence of this wisdom has been so often misunderstood. In Walking with Grandfather, authentic Lakota lineage holder and award-winning storyteller Joseph M. Marshall breaks this silence with the very best from a lifetime of lessons passed on to him by his grandfather. With him, you will gain access to the timeless teachings that until now remained largely unheard outside the culture of the Lakota people.

Part of an unbroken series of narratives dating back countless centuries, this rare new transmission includes Marshall's rendition of legendary stories such as:

  • "Follow Me"—why it is not authority but character, compassion, and experience that make a good leader
  • "The Way of Wolves"—surprising lessons about the meaning of family
  • "The Bow and the Arrow"—the intricate dynamics of spiritual partnership
  • "The Shadow Man"—how to honor the sacred warrior in all of us
  • "The Wisdom Within"—the passage of truly becoming an elder
  • Plus many more stories

Review for Walking with Grandfather

Marshall's book has wide appeal, not only as an honest and true portrait of Lakota heritage and the obligations and privilege of the elders, but also of his own journey from grandson to upcoming elder. Excellent read... to be shared!

Review for Walking with Grandfather

Bought my original book in S.E Utah, at Monument Valley. I am a grandfather of two young ones and the book spoke to me about being an elder among my faith community. I have been part of a Men's Group that has been meeting weekly for almost 30 years and I decided to buy the 10 books to give to the 10 men that are in this group with me. I hope it will be a good book study and that they get as much a I have from the words of Joseph Marshall. I also need to order an extra book, we have 1 extra man who is meeting with us for a time. Thanks for getting the books to me. I feel like I'm carrying words that my elders have spoken to me.
