  • Info : 9.5" x 6.5"; Soft Cover; 281 pages

Here as it unfolds is the chronology of the native American woman's life. Here are the birth rites of Caddo women from the Mississippi-Arkansas border, who bore their children alone by the banks of the rivers and then immersed themselves and their babies in river water; here are Apache puberty ceremonies that are still carried on today. Women were both guardians of the hearth and, on occasion, ruler and warrior, leading men into battle, managing the affairs of her people, sporting war paint as well as necklaces and earrings.

  • ISBN 0-8061-1308-1
  • Condition : Excellent. Still in shrink wrap
  • Info : 5" x 8"; Soft Cover; 217 pages

This is the early West from the horse's mouth, so to speak: a close-up, eyewitness account of how things really were on the Upper Missouri, 1833-1856, written by a hard-bitten, rye-drinking merchant of the American Fur Company who lived among the Plains tribes for twenty-two years and was married to an Assiniboine woman.


Snake Dance Of The Moquis. Snake Dance Of The Moquis

  • Condition : Very Good. A few pages are wrinkled at the corner, in the back of the book
  • Info : 5" x 8"; Soft Cover; 364 pages + pictures

John Bourke's 1884 account is notable for his having been accorded rare privileges in observing dance-related activities, both in deference to his military status and in ignorance of the impact his published report would have. So little has changed in the ceremony over the years that his book remains a valuable ethnographic document. The Hopi's were known as the Moqui.

Brilliant reportage and a gallery of rare photographs. South Dakota History.

  • Condition : Excellent
  • Info : 8" x 5"; Soft Cover; 276 pages

This book written by Robert Silverburg, which is charming written, ends with a history of the archaeological work which gives the mounds BACK to the Indians and not to the Phoenicians, stray Vikings, refugee from Atlantis, nor the lost tribes of Israel.


The Quapaw Indians. The Quapaw Indians

  • ISBN 0-8061-1542-4
  • Condition : Excellent
  • Size 6" x 9" Hardback; 290 pages

Living in north-eastern Oklahoma today are the remnants of a people whose place in American history has never been fully recognized. The Quapaw Indians deserve a better fate. Originally they lived along the Mississippi River in what is now Arakansas, and during the eighteenth century both France and Spain looked to the tribe to uphold their imperial ambitions west of the Mississippi. Reservation life was tramatic for the Quapaws. In 1893 the Quapaw unilaterally allotted their reservation and all but abandoned their tribal life in common.


American Indian Books : Custer Died For Your Sins. Custer Died For Your Sins

  • ISBN 0-8061-2129-7
  • Condition : Excellent
  • Info : 5.5" x 8"; Soft Cover; 278 Pages

"The Indian world has changed so substantially since the first publication of this book that some things contained in it seem new again."

Indeed, it seems that each generation of whites and Indians will have to read and reread Vine Deloria's Manifesto for some time to come, before we absorbe his special, ironic Indian point of view and what he tells us, with a great deal of humor, about U.S. race relations, federal bureaucracies, Christian churches, and social scientist. This book continues to be required reading for all Americans, whatever their special interest.

A great chapter on how the Native American have a wonderful sense of humor and laugh about everything in their daily lives.
