I´ve got good news from Kingsley. New articles by him will be published in the Fall 2017 issue of Nebraska History magazine. It should be out by the end of August, according to the editor.
It's going to be devoted to two articles of Kingsley:
• 'The Oglala Lakota and the Atkinson-O'Fallon Treaty of 1825' • 'Lakota Statesmen and the Horse Creek Treaty of 1851'
It will include much new information foregrounding the role of native leaders and of men's associations like the Bull Headdress Wearers, the Miwatani, and the Kit-Fox societies. There will be a detailed analysis of the 1825 Oglala tribal camp circle. The cover will be a nice portrait of American Horse, whose preservation of Oglala traditional history is fundamental to the new discoveries that Kingsley has been privileged to access over the past couple of years -- material that is going to crucially deepen our knowledge of Lakota culture, society, and history, and the remarkable men and women that shaped it.
The new issue of Nebraska History magazine is soon to be out. I can promise you it´s worth ordering. Two fascinating articles by Kingsley. A must-read for all who are interested in Lakota history.

What a treat to receive my latest issue of Nebraska History (I'm a subscriber) and see Kingsley's two articles! I can't wait to settle down to read them. Truly astonishing new work and a significant contribution, especially to our understanding of the early history of the Oglala.
Thanks Emily, I have most if not all of the older articles pertaining to Lakota history, but was actually looking for Kingsley’s two articles mentioned above. I realized only yesterday that I didn’t order this issue when it came out and completely forgot about it since. I will give them a call to order, I think it’s fair to pay for this recent issue.
Does anyone know where I might find Kingsley's article 'Oglala Lakota and the Establishment of Fort Laramie' other than in the Western Historical Quarterly?
Once upon a time I calculated $284 a month in subscriptions that one would have to pay to receive all the journals, magazines and quarterlies to keep up with leading researchers in the cultures and wars of plains peoples and that's not counting the $100's one would have to spend getting the older issues, if they are even available.
It's sad that academia has morphed itself into a closely guarded redoubt of knowledge, hiding away so much information from the few people that are genuinely interested in it. If it isn't behind a castle wall of $$$ it is kept in a vault locked away from anyone not writing a thesis or dissertation.
What is the point of it all?
No one on this site is responsible for this state of affairs, the authors probably have less rights to what they've written than anyone, I'm just venting here at something that hurts most members of this site and the small number of people that even care about these topics.
If it could all be made accessible in one location and made available digitally for a minimal fee I would have no complaints, but it is an Easter egg hunt. I have a subscription to JSTOR and I still have to pay $42.00 to download anything not already free somewhere else, whether it's 100 words or 1000. It's a racket.
Rant over. Have a good day all.
