LaDonna Harris : a Comanche life by LaDonna Harris( )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 2,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the story of a Comanche woman who has become one of the most influential, inspired, and determined Native Americans in politics. LaDonna Harris was born on a Comanche allotment in southern Oklahoma in the 1930s. From her earliest years, she was immersed in a world of resistance, reform, and political action. As the wife of Senator Fred R. Harris, LaDonna was actively involved in political advising, campaigning, and networking." "Not content to remain in the background, LaDonna became a well-known political figure in her own right, serving on the National Indian Opportunities Council as President Lyndon B. Johnson's appointee and working beside such political figures as Hubert Humphrey, Robert Kennedy, and Sargent Shriver. In 1980 she became the vice-presidential nominee for the environmentalist Citizen's Party. Her story provides a valuable American Indian insider's view of modern national political scenes."--Jacket
Geronimo's kids : a teacher's lessons on the Apache reservation by Robert S Ove( )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the stories of the elders, he also learned how this way of life had changed since their capture, as many of the traditional ways of the Chiricahuas were altered or lost in the ensuing decades after Geronimo's people surrendered to the U.S. Army in 1886. Decades of incarceration followed - first in Florida, then in Alabama, and finally in Oklahoma. More than half died in hot, humid prison camps because the Chiricahuas had no inborn resistance to the virulent diseases brought to North America by Europeans. Then in 1913, with fewer than three hundred left, the Chiricahuas were released and received land allotments near their last prison site, Fort Sill, or on the Mescalero Apache Reservation where Ove arrived thirty-five years later
Salvation through slavery : Chiricahua Apaches and priests on the Spanish colonial frontier by H. Henrietta Stockel( )

17 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents Advanced Calculus from a geometric point of view: instead of dealing with partial derivatives of functions of several variables, the derivative of the function is treated as a linear transformation between normed linear spaces. Not only does this lead to a simplified and transparent exposition of "difficult" results like the Inverse and Implicit Function Theorems but also permits, without any extra effort, a discussion of the Differential Calculus of functions defined on infinite dimensional Hilbert or Banach spaces." "The prerequisites demanded of the reader are modest: a sound understanding of convergence of sequences and series of real numbers, the continuity and differentiability properties of functions of a real variable and a little Linear Algebra should provide adequate background for understanding the book. The first two chapters cover much of the more advanced background material on Linear Algebra (like dual spaces, multilinear functions and tensor products). Chapter 3 gives an ab initio exposition of the basic results concerning the topology of metric spaces, particularly of normed linear spaces." "The Last chapter deals with miscellaneous applications of the Differential Calculus Including an introduction to the Calculus of Variations. As a corollary to this, there is a brief discussion of geodesics in Euclidean and hyperbolic planes and non-Euclidean geometry."--BOOK JACKET
The lightning stick : arrows, wounds, and Indian legends by H. Henrietta Stockel( )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than simply a history of the bow and arrow, The Lightning Stick brings together a broad range of significant people and events, spiritual usages, medicinal treatments, and an unusual array of subject matter related to the weapon itself. Henrietta Stockel conveys a host of information derived from primary documents and provides readers with a fascinating book. Before the mid-1800s darts, atlatls, and Indian bows and arrows were very effective against enemies, and it is this particular time, and even earlier in some instances, that the author addresses, expertly drawing on both fact and fiction. At the core of this book are formerly obscure tales about arrow wounds and the often innovative methods used in the mid- to late-1800s to treat them. Stockel also discusses head wounds and their treatments, such as cutting into the skull, or scraping a hole in it (called trephining), or drilling into the soft tissue with a homemade tool. She also includes a graphic portrayal of scalping and how - once treated - those wounds did (or didn't) heal
Medicine women, curanderas, and women doctors by Bobette Perrone( Book )

14 editions published between 1989 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stories of ten women healers form the core of this provocative journey into cultural healing methods utilized by women. In a truly grass-roots project, the authors take the reader along to listen to the voices of Native American medicine women, Southwest Hispanic curanderas, and women physicians as they describe their healing paths. This book will fascinate anyone interested in the relationship between illness and healing-medical practitioners and historians, patients, anthropologists, feminists, psychologists, psychiatrists, theologians, sociologists, folklorists, and others who seek understanding about our relationship to the forces of both illness and healing

Survival of the spirit : Chiricahua Apaches in captivity by H. Henrietta Stockel( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the United States imprisoned the Chiricahua Apaches in damp, humid regions of the East, contagious diseases devastated this group of Native Americans. Numerous books have been written about Geronimo's infamous band, but none have focused specifically on the Chiricahua Apaches' healing practices, or on the dramatic effects captivity had on the health of these first Americans. In clear and precise prose, the author addresses the medical maladies suffered by the Chiricahuas while they were incarcerated for nearly thirty years. By harvesting information from diverse and often obscure sources, Stockel describes the arrival of the Chiricahua Apaches in the Southwest, their use of natural medicines, and their reliance on cultural customs and sacred ceremonies to promote healing. She provides the reader with a thorough background on the most contagious ailments of the Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo frontier-folk, including popular and often amusing remedies. Records of "the white man's diseases" that assaulted the Chiricahua Apaches during their confinement have been painstakingly researched by the author from data at the imprisonment sites in Florida, Alabama, and Oklahoma. Her interviews with contemporary Chiricahua Apaches present their points of view about the experiences of their imprisoned ancestors and add an important dimension to the author's primary research accounts. Survival of the Spirit contains many previously unpublished photographs. Stockel's book, the first full-length study of the medical catastrophes endured by the Chiricahua Apache prisoners of war, makes a significant contribution to Native American history

On the bloody road to Jesus : Christianity and the Chiricahua Apaches by H. Henrietta Stockel( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stockel portrays an unbroken sequence of economic motivations on the part of the Spanish, Mexican, and American governments, each eager to expand their respective territories. Equally unbroken was the resistance of the Apaches to indoctrination. According to Stockel, the Chiricahua Apaches never completely surrendered their traditional religion to Christianity. Like other syncretistic religions, their beliefs incorporated aspects of Christian dogma even while they protected their own religion from outsiders."--Jacket

Geronimo's Kids: A Teacher's Lessons on the Apache Reservation. ElmaDill Russell Spencer Series in the West and Southwest, No. 16 by Robert S Ove( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1948, a young and naive Robert Ove arrived at Whitetail, on the Mescalero Apache Reservation, to teach at the Bureau of Indian Affairs day school. Living there were the Chiricahua Apaches--descendants of Geronimo and the survivors of nearly 30 years of incarceration by the U.S. government. With help from Indian historian H. Henrietta Stockel, this book recounts Ove's experiences among the Chiricahuas. The first chapter describes the landscape, community, and residents when Ove first arrived, and how a few residents shared tales of the Indian wars, their lineage, and cultural heritage. The second chapter describes the one-room school where Ove taught kindergarten through sixth grade. The school was more than just an educational institution; it was the focal point of activity for the entire Chiricahua Apache community. It was the dispensary, and had the only telephone and gas pump in the community. It also had a public water tap and an electric generator, and hosted dances, socials, public meetings, and movies. The next two chapters recount some of the history and culture of the Chiricahua and contain biographies of Whitetail residents, some of whom were, or were related to, the great leaders and warriors of Geronimo's time. Insights into Apache religion, ceremonies, justice, and culture in general are given through anecdotes. A 1992 visit to the area and some former students provides some of the stories. Contains references in notes, a bibliography, photographs, and an index. (Td)
