Legends of the Chiefs: The True Legends Passed Down by Native Americans

Length: 221 pages12 hours


American Indians like every culture tell the stories of their hero’s. The gathering’s where NativeAmericans sit around the campfire and tell their oral history has almost vanished. As the younger American Indians get absorbed into the culture of today with instant gratification of the internet, cell phones and yes, even e-books, very few want to sit around the campfire and hear their elders speak ofonce great warriors. Lucky for the readers that Beth Shumway Moore heard Blackhawk tell these stories sitting around campfires at Utah’s Village of Many Nations. After many years and lots of convincing she talked him into putting these Legends into print so they would be saved for prosperity. Beth and Blackhawk admit these are ‘Legends’ based on true history that has never been told from the Indian’s point of view. Are they biased…………… HECK YEA! Isn’t it about time we have the people who have been under attack for over 500 years tell their side of the story? Blackhawk hearing as a small boy the’ Legend of Opecancanough’ makes him one of the handful of people left on earth who even know this history. A great warrior made a slave, latter to return to lead his people as a War Chief. At one hundred years old he led his warriors into battle and almost stopped the colonization of America. Blackhawk dedicated over 50 years of his life not only learning oral history but researching historical documents to put time and places of the ‘Red History’ with the ‘White History.’ Sit back and enjoy the ‘Legends of the Chiefs.’ A history of great American Indian Warriors like you have never heard before.
