About Black Hills Press

Background Story

Black Hills Press came to fruition as an attempt to make myself appear more legitimate in the self-publishing world. My career started with a little book titled, Anoka, and no one knew my name or cared, and rightfully so. I wanted to choose a name that stuck out but also paid respect to old Cheyenne land centuries ago. And in a way, I've made many more people aware of what the Black Hills themselves are and the political issues that still hurt them: the broken treaties, the ugly men carved into them, and the fight for the Hills to be returned to the Oceti Sakowin. This press has become more than a publishing imprint for me. It's a means to make some change with the little slice of influence that I have. Because in the end, I just want the stolen land back to the Indigenous.
