Marie McLaughlin appears in her husband's reminiscence My Friend the Indian (Nebraska, 1989). There is an active table of contents, but I have so far been unable to get it to show up in its entirely on any device, so if you want to read past the eighth story or so, you'll have to page through it. McLaughlin, born to a white father and a mixed-blood Sioux mother, heard these stories while growing up among the eastern Sioux of Minnesota. When she recorded them for posterity in 1916 she had long been the wife of James McLaughlin, whom she served as interpreter during the years he was head of the Devils Lake and Standing Rock agencies and an inspector for the Indian Bureau. The thirty-eight pieces in this collection are rich in humor, animal lore, otherworldly encounters, and famous legends such as those featuring Unktomi (Spider) and the Stone Boy.
In publishing these "Myths of the Sioux," I deem it proper to state that I am of one fourth Sioux blood. I was married to Major James McLaughlin at Mendota, Minnesota, January 28, 1864, and resided in Minnesota until July 1, 1871, when I accompanied my husband to Devils Lake Agency, North Dakota, then Dakota Territory, where I remained ten years in most friendly relations with the Indians of that agency.
