Women Who Ride the Hoka Hey

Women were more empowered to ride motorcycles, as Sheila says, I really have progressed as a rider and in my confidence and the Hoka Hey had a lot to do with that. Before I always followed my husband. We always rode how he rode.

The Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge is an endurance ride that takes participants across the United States. Riding 20 hours a day or more for 7-12 days straight, they traverse back roads, brave dangerous conditions and battle mental and physical exhaustion. Fewer than 10 percent of participants are women. They take on the challenge and they excel! Chronicling the journeys of 14 women who participated in the Hoka Hey (Lakota for "Let's do it!") from 2010 to 2013, this feminist cultural analysis relates their often harrowing stories of life on the road and draws comparisons to women in other sports.

The Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challengean annual endurance ride exceeding eight thousand miles. Those who step out and accept the challenge are a very small percentage of the riding community. Some who attempt it do not succeed. Hoka Hey is a call to action and is an Oglala Lakota Native American Indian term that translates to Its a good day to die. That doesnt mean those who ride the Challenge are eager to die. What it does mean is that those who ride should live lives of honor, integrity, compassion, and respect so if they fall in battle, they will leave a positive legacy to family and friends. The majority of this book spans twelve days, but in reality, it spans a lifetime of failures, accomplishments, regrets, desires, and fears. I took this Challenge to prove something to myself, but what I discovered was something I did not know was lost.

"Our Eagle Voice -here speaking- is a composite character; but the tale he tells is based upon the life story of my old friend Eagle Elk, who died in 1945 at the age of ninety-four. The relationship that grew up between us is faithfully represented in this book. Eagle Voice is Eagle Elk in character, and in the idiom of his thoughts and speech. The adventures that I have added to his own , by way of giving a comprehensive view of the old Sioux world, are all authentic"-- from author's introduction

One of the best known, least known names and personalities in American history, Crazy Horse has been glamorized or demonized in countless movies. But it was Mari Sandoz, born not far from where Crazy Horse was born and author of nearly two dozen books of western history, biography and fiction, who first told the true story of the military leader of the Oglala Sioux. To tell his story, Mari Sandoz deliberately attempts to imitate the Indian oral tradition. She uses "the simplest words possible, hoping by idiom and figures and the underlying rhythm pattern to say some of the things of the Indians for which there are no white-man words." The result has been called a masterpiece of lyrical brilliance, a tour de force of language and style. It is an unforgettable work about an unforgotten man. --from Amazon.com.
