Set in the 1870s, Hunkpapa Sioux is a coming-of-age story of a mixed-blood Indian teen in search of learning more about his Sioux heritage.

Ever since his father, Waukesha, died by the hands of white men, John Holcumb has felt out of place living in Chicago.

Yearning to learn more about his Sioux heritage, he boards a train and heads off to meet his Native American relatives.

When John meets a rugged mountain man heading the same way, the unlikely duo form a friendship and travel together across the Great Plains in an adventure that will help John not only discover who he is, but reconnect with his past.
