Native universe : voices of Indian America( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 2,130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in conjunction with the opening of the National Museum of the American Indian's new building on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Native Universe offers readers a deeper understanding of Native philosophies, histories, and identities. Featuring essays by such distinguished Native Americans as Vine Deloria, Jr. (Standing Rock Sioux), Wilma Mankiller (Cherokee), Victor Montejo (Maya), and many more, Native Universe reveals the rich heritage and true diversity of the Indian Americas. Seneca author John C. Mohawk explores the profound meaning of ceremonial life and its intimate connections with the land, while Luci Tapahonso shows how ancestral traditions still shape modern Navajo life. Brenda J. Child (Red Lake Ojibwe) presents a poignant chronicle of the impact of Indian boarding schools on Native families and cultures, while Comanche writer Paul Chaat Smith recounts his days as an activist in the turbulent 1970s, when the American Indian Movement's drive for justice and political recognition led to new confrontations at Alcatraz, Wounded Knee, and Washington, D.C. Poems by Louise Erdrich and N. Scott Momaday, and a scene from Sherman Alexie's screenplay, Smoke Signals, are examples of a literary renaissance in which Native writers have captured the respect and imagination of the world. In visual counterpoint, 300 full-color illustrations depict examples of indigenous cultures, from dramatic ceremonial masks to intricate baskets and exquisite beadwork, that speak of the historical experience of Native peoples throughout the hemisphere and attest to their vitality today. Here too are photographs that depict the full range of Native life, from vibrant images of powwow dancing to the concentration of an artist at work, as well as contemporary Indian art that melds long-established themes with a thoroughly modern sensibility

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Popular media depict miners as a rough and tumble lot who digently worked the placers along scenic rushing rivers while living in roaring mining camps in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Trafzer and Hyer destroy this mythic image by offering a collection of original newspaper articles that describe in detail the murders, rapes, and enslavements perpetrated by those who participated in the infamous Gold Rush."--Jacket

Death stalks the Yakama : epidemiological transitions and mortality on the Yakama Indian Reservation, 1888-1964 by Clifford E Trafzer( )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 1,374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clifford Trafzer's disturbing new work, Death Stalks the Yakama, examines life, death, and the shockingly high mortality rates that have persisted among the fourteen tribes and bands living on the Yakama Reservation in the state of Washington. The work contains a valuable discussion of Indian beliefs about spirits, traditional causes of death, mourning ceremonies, and memorials. More significant, however, is Trafzer's research into heretofore unused parturition and death records from 1888-1964. In these documents, he discovers critical evidence to demonstrate how and why many

Improving the dire health problems faced by many Native American communities is central to their cultural, political, and economic well being. However, it is still too often the case that both theoretical studies and applied programs fail to account for Native American perspectives on the range of factors that actually contribute to these problems in the first place. The authors in Medicine Ways examine the ways people from a multitude of indigenous communities think about and practice health care within historical and socio-cultural contexts. Cultural and physical survival are inseparable for

American Indians/American presidents : a history( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here, for the first time, is the little-known history of American Indians and American presidents, what they said and felt about one another, and what their words tell us about the history of the United States. Focused on major turning points in Native American history, these pages show how American Indians interpreted the power and prestige of the presidency, and advanced their own agenda for tribal sovereignty, from the age of George Washington to the present day. In addition to exploring a pantheon of Indian leaders, from Little Turtle to Robert Yellowtail, this book also provides new₂and often unexpected₂perspectives on the presidents. Thomas Jefferson, traditionally portrayed as the Indians' friend, emerges as a master of the art of Indian dispossession. Richard Nixon, long-tarnished by the Watergate scandal, was in reality a champion of tribal self-determination₂a position that sprang, in part, from his Quaker origins. Using inaugural addresses, proclamations, Indian Agency records, private correspondence, memoirs, petitions, photographs, and objects from the collections of the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian, American Indians/American Presidents illuminates the relationship between these diverse leaders, the Native Americans' commitment to tribal self-determination, and the social, geographic, and political evolution of the United States over more than two centuries
