Sioux leaders chose a 59-year-old Newport Beach man Thursday to be their first war chief in more than a century and lead the battle to recover their ancestral land in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Phillip J. Stevens was named to this post, a Sioux spokesman said, so the Sioux tribes could show a united front in their campaign to persuade the federal government to pay $3.1 billion in reparations and return 1.3 million acres in South Dakota.

Cather: Early Novels & Stories edited and annotated by Sharon O'Brien (The Library of America: $27.50, 1,336 pages) The Denver poet and essayist Thomas Hornsby Ferril once spoke of the West of his childhood as "a land without grandmothers," and, metaphorically, it was almost certainly true enough. The frontier was then still so recent that families had not yet had time to extend themselves. Yet already those days have come to seem almost immeasurably distant and faded.

Turn the corner onto West Tichenor Street from Wilmington Avenue, no more than a mile from the 91 Freeway in Compton, and here is what you see: the back end of an Arabian horse trotting up the street. Here is what you hear: roosters crowing, chickens clucking. Across the street from the well-tended and carefully rehabilitated home of Danny and Arron Afflalo lives Eddie Stovall.

"Crazy Horse" is the latest entry in TNT's continuing series of Native American dramas. As with such earlier stories in the collection as "Geronimo," "Lakota Woman" and "Tecumseh," every effort has been made to stick close to the facts.

The de-Anglicizing of PBS drama moves forward tonight with "The Song of the Lark," an adaptation of American novelist Willa Cather's story about a gifted young woman driven by her passion for music to flee her provincial Colorado home town en route to a career as an opera diva.

"BURY My Heart at Wounded Knee," which premieres on HBO at 9 p.m. Sunday, traces the decline of the Sioux resistance from the defeat of Custer at the Little Big Horn in 1876 through the climactic Wounded Knee massacre in 1890. The two-part film is a major departure from previous dramas about 19th century American Indians -- not least because it grounds their experience in harsh reality rather than myth.
