  • 2017 Frederick C. Luebke Award

We are pleased to announce that the 2017 Frederick C. Luebke Award for outstanding regional scholarship has been awarded to Kiara M. Vigil for her essay "Who Was Henry Standing Bear?: Remembering Lakota Activism from the Early Twentieth Century" (Summer 2017, Vol. 37, No. 3). Dr. Vigil examines the often overlooked and complicated life of Lakota activist Henry Standing Bear, and how he helped to shape early twentieth-century Native social and political activism differently from his better-known brother, Luther Standing Bear. Kiara M. Vigil is an assistant professor of American studies at Amherst College and the author of Indigenous Intellectuals: Sovereignty, Citizenship, and the American Imagination, 1880–1930 (Cambridge University Press, 2015). She has received fellowships from the Mellon Foundation, the Autry National Center, Williams College, the Newberry Library, and the University of Michigan. The Luebke Award, named for the founder of the journal, is given each year for the best article published in Great Plains Quarterly as determined by a panel of judges. The Frederick C. Luebke Award includes a cash stipend of $250.00. [End Page iii]
