A book, full of correct Native American Historical Facts...

But overly dry, like reading a PhD Dissertation and as equally as boring.

I found the writing styles to be erudite and overly affected... this book isn't for the average reader who wants to read a true account of Native History, this is for the overly educated that like theses, dissertations, & other scholarly offerings.

I felt as if the authors were trying to prove themselves to be of the higher level of educational ranks, thereby negating the value of this book in relation to basic education usage... For that reason, I believe that most people will not read this book because of the scholarly content, which is too bad. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0896726991, Paperback)

No matter what you know about Lewis and Clark, the Hopi Snake Dance, the occupation of Wounded Knee village, or the Seminole Freedmen claim, you have never before seen those and myriad other historic episodes from these perspectives. In this first-of-its-kind anthology, American Indian scholars examine crucial events in their own nations’ histories. On the one hand, these writers represent diverse tribal perspectives. On the other, they share a unifying point of view grounded in ancestral wisdom: the Cosmos is a live being, Earth is our Mother, the North American tribes are engaged in national liberation struggles, and Indigenous realities are as viable as any other. Fanciful? Read this book and see whether you still think so.
