From the Publisher

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 Blackhawk dedicated over 50 years of his life not only learning oral history but researching historical documents to put time and places of the ‘Red History’ with the ‘White History.’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.

Layli Long Soldier Confronts the Duplicitous Language of the US Government

Layli Long Soldier’s Whereas confronts the coercive language of the United States government in its responses, treaties, and apologies to Native American peoples and tribes, and reflects that language in its officiousness and duplicity back on its perpetrators. Long Soldier’s work has been described as, “Elegant and painful, formally surprising, personal and historic […] a fearless, polyphonic crossing of cultures and languages in the service of both tenderness and trenchant critique.” RESOLUTION 5 From the Congressional Resolution of Apology to Native Americans (S.

America's Original Artisans Go Back To The Land

For nearly 15,000 years, the Chumash people have called coastal California home. Before contact with European settlers, the tribe occupied 7,000 square miles of exceptionally fertile land near what is today Santa Barbara. The conquest and settlement of California, first by Spain and then by the United States, hemmed in the Chumash, making them secondary citizens on a land they thought had been granted to them by the gods. In 1901, the tribe was confined to 127 acres on the Santa Ynez Reservation. For most of the 20th century, that reservation, like most others across the nation, was a nearly i

With This Publisher, Native American Superheroes Fly High

In comics and graphic novels, Native American characters aren't usually very prominent. They're often sidekicks — or worse. But a new publisher focused exclusively on Native writers and artists is changing that. Called Native Realities, the company just released the reboot of the first all-Native superhero comic. Comics creator Jon Proudstar remembers the first time he saw a Native American character in a comic. It was Thunderbird, in the X-Men, and he was quickly killed off. Proudstar was 8 years old and he was not happy. "And for years I just lamented about it and said one day I'll bring him
