The Journal and Papers of Father Francis M. Craft, 1888-1890.
The journals of Father Francis M. Craft cover a twenty-six-month period and were primarily written while on the Standing Rock Reservation in Dakota Territory, beginning March 21, 1888 and ending May 28, 1890.
They provide fascinating insights into reservation life from the federal acquisition of Sioux lands during the Dawes Commission of 1888-89 to events preceding the tragedy at Wounded Knee in December 1890.
Readers should know that Craft's journals are not typical of missionary diaries. The priest did not provide the "thick description" of Lakota culture that other priests often reported.
