That the people might live Native American literatures and Native American community by Jace Weaver ( )
12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Loyalty to the community is the highest value in Native American cultures, argues Jace Weaver. In That the People Might Live, he explores a wide range of Native American literature from 1768 to the present, taking this sense of community as both a starting point and a lens. Weaver considers some of the best known Native American writers, such as Leslie Marmon Silko, Gerald Vizenor, and Vine Deloria, as well as many others who are receiving critical attention here for the first time. He contends that the single thing that most defines these authors' writings, and makes them deserving of study a
Notes from a miner's canary essays on the state of Native America by Jace Weaver ( )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
But the book goes far beyond the subject of law. The wide range of cultural references shows why the author is considered a leader in the field of Native American Studies. Beginning with a survey of the state of Native American Studies and ending with an assessment of literary theory, he also tackles environmentalism and environmental justice, NAGPRA, war tribunals, pilgrimage and migration, ethnography, food, architecture, ghost stories, identity, theory, and a few other lively subjects, including a splendid tribute to the towering significance of N. Scott Momaday."--pub. desc
Native American religious identity : unforgotten gods ( Book )
5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this work, some contemporary Native scholars and writers examine the issue of Native religious identity today. Because the traditional Native American view recognizes no sharp distinction between sacred and profane spheres. Native cultures and religious traditions are in many ways synonymous and coextensive. It is this intricately intimate relationship between culture and religious tradition that makes the question of religious identity a vital inquiry today."--Jacket
Defending mother earth : Native American perspectives on environmental justice ( Book )
4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Defending Mother Earth brings together important Native voices to address urgent issues of environmental devastation as they affect the indigenous peoples throughout the Americas. The essays document a range of ecological disasters, including the devastating effects of mining, water pollution, nuclear power facilities, and toxic waste dumps. In an expression of "environmental racism," such hazards are commonly located on or near Indian lands. Many of the authors included in Defending Mother Earth are engaged in struggles to resist these dangers. As their essays consistently demonstrate, these struggles are intimately tied to the assertion of Indian sovereignty and the affirmation of Native culture: the Earth is, indeed, Mother to these nations. In his concluding theological reflection, George Tinker argues that the affirmation of Indian spiritual values, especially the attitude toward the Earth, may hold out a key to the survival of the planet and all its peoples

Then to the rock let me fly : Luther Bohanon and judicial activism by Jace Weaver ( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
U.S. District Judge Luther Bohanon of Oklahoma has had perhaps more effect on the state, and on the nation, than any other member of a state's judiciary. Biographies of Supreme Court justices are numerous, but this book is among the few that focus on federal district court judges-magistrates who, being closest to the people, are most likely to affect their daily lives. During his long career as an attorney, Bohanon exposed corruption in the Oklahoma State Supreme Court and, in a landmark case, helped establish the right of American Indians to sue for compensation for lands taken from them. In 1961, Oklahoma's powerful Senator Robert S. Kerr recommended Bohanon for appointment to the federal bench, and although the appointment was clouded by conflict with Attorney General Robert Kennedy, it was approved by President John Kennedy. Since then Bohanon has presided over some of the state's most controversial and important cases - cases touching on many civil liberties and other fundamental rights. Almost immediately upon taking the bench, Judge Bohanon mandated integration of the Oklahoma City public schools, a plan of unprecedented magnitude that earned him much enmity. His enforced reform of Oklahoma's prison system also was unpopular. Nor did his decisions affect the state alone: he took on the federal government itself when he enjoined the Food and Drug Administration from prohibiting terminally ill cancer patients from importing the unproven drug laetrile. This biography reveals Judge Bohanon as one of the most creative, energetic, and faithful federal judges ever to occupy the bench. His story will appeal to students of the law, the Constitution, and the federal judiciary and to anyone interested in Oklahoma history and civil rights

The singing bird : a Cherokee novel by John M Oskison ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in the 1840s and 1950s, the time of the Cherokee removal and of conflicts between the Eastern and Western Cherokees after they settled in Indian Territory, The Singing bird relates the adventures of missionaries to the Cherokees who participate in the removal. Focusing on the tangled relationships among the missionaries - particularly the kindly, religious Daniel and his promiscuous, selfish wife, Ellen, the "Singing bird" of the title - the story conveys a sense of the United States inflicting injustices and broken promises upon a peaceful people. The fictional characters mingle with such historical figures as Sequoyah and Sam Houston, embedding the novel in actual events. -- Back cover
