An anthology of essays and photographs celebrates the depth and diversity of contemporary native American life, featuring discussions of family life, community, the arts, religion, politics, and social issues.
This finely crafted, stunningly designed book is a visual and written tribute to the families of Native American writers and artists. With a foreword by Leslie Silko and an introduction by Michael Dorris, the book presents nostalgic essays by Simon Ortiz, Joy Harjo, Linda Hogan, Debra Callingthunder, Paula Gunn Allen, and Elizabeth Woody, among others. The photographs by acclaimed American Indian photographers are themselves worth the price of the book, capturing a sweeping span of time in Native American history. As the turn of the century approaches, changes in U.S. society will undoubtedly spur further changes in Native American life. This volume serves as an archive of both personal remembrances and an entire collective past. Recommended for collections in Native American studies and photography.
