Deloria’s 1970 book We Talk, You Listen can in some regards be considered a sequel to Custer, in which he further investigates developments that were taking place in the United States at the time, again with a focus on Native issues. Some of the other topics he addresses this time include black power and the decline of the hippie movement, which he explains at the hand of notions of tribalism, helping readers to understand how and why things unfolded as they did from a Native perspective. In these essays, Deloria also included Mexican Americans in praising the various minority protests for the fact that they “revealed a common longing for solidarity and the recognition of their collective rights” (Hoxie 370), even if he was critical of the precise ways in which activists organized themselves. Although not as well-received as Custer, with Boek for example suggesting that Deloria offers a perspective that is too narrow, with too little outside information to properly evaluate the situation. Other critics applauded Deloria for his unapologetic criticism and his clear views on these issues (Derosier) and the ways in which he showed his readers that to improve, the United States to move away from its emphasis on white heritage and move to a more inclusive projection of the nation (Wells 173). These elements make the book, like Custer, an important source not only for its discussion of Indigenous themes, but also for its discussion of more general themes from an Indigenous perspective.
