161 FERGUSSON, ERNA. Dancing Gods: Indian Ceremonials Of New Mexico And Arizona.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
One of the most remarkable features of life in the Southwest is the presence of Native American religious ceremonies in communities that are driving distance from Sunbelt cities. Many of these ceremonies are open to the public and Dancing Gods is the best single reference for visitors to dances at the Rio Grande Pueblos, Zuni Pueblo, the Hopi Mesas, and the Navajo and Apache reservations. Fergusson's classic guide to New Mexico and Arizona Indian ceremonies is once again available in print. It offers background information on the history and religion of the area's Native American peoples and describes the principal public ceremonies and some lesser-known dances that are rarely performed. Here is information on the major Pueblo rituals--the Corn Dance, Deer Dance, and Eagle Dance--as well as various dances at Zuni, including the complicated Shalako. Fergusson also describes the Hopi bean-planting and Niman Kachina ceremonies in addition to the Snake Dance, the Navajo Mountain Chant and Night Chant, and several Apache ceremonies. 6 x 9 in., 314 pages 13 halftones. Erna Fergusson (1888-1964) wrote widely on New Mexican themes and helped create tourism in the Southwest with her Indian Detours business. Tony Hillerman (1925-2008) was an award-winning author and newspaperman, best known for his mystery novels set on the Navajo Nation. "A clear, sympathetic, and informed introduction to these people and their ceremonies . . . should give every new onlooker a deeper appreciation of the dance which is really a prayer." --The Denver Post

163 FITZGERALD, STEPHANIE J. Native Women And Land: Narratives Of Dispossession And Resurgence.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque. Studies in American Indian Literatures Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Winner of the 2015 Wordcraft Circle Honor and Award for Academic Book "What roles do literary and community texts and social media play in the memory, politics, and lived experience of those dispossessed?" Fitzgerald asks this question in her introduction and sets out to answer it in her study of literature and social media by (primarily) Native women who are writing about and often actively protesting against displacement caused both by forced relocation and environmental disaster. By examining a range of diverse materials, including the writings of canonical Native American writers such as Louise Erdrich, Linda Hogan, and Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, and social media sites such as YouTube and Facebook, this work brings new focus to analyzing how indigenous communities and authors relate to land, while also exploring broader connections to literary criticism, environmental history and justice, ecocriticism, feminist studies, and new media studies. 6 x 9 in., 176 pages, 2 halftones. Stephanie J. Fitzgerald is an assistant professor of English at the University of Kansas. She is the coeditor of Keepers of the Morning Star: An Anthology of Native Women's Theater. "Fitzgerald offers a concentrated scrutiny that should attract a broad readership. No one should doubt her powerful intellectual weight and resourcefulness. . . . Essential." --Choice "An excellent choice for anyone interested in Native land tenure as well as for scholars in American Indian studies, women's studies, ecocriticism, and environmental justice studies. Highly recommended." --Great Plains Quarterly

164 FIXICO, DONALD L. " That's What They Used To Say" Reflections On American Indian Oral Traditions.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2017. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
As a child growing up in rural Oklahoma, Donald Fixico often heard "hvmakimata"—"that's what they used to say"—a phrase Mvskoke Creeks and Seminoles use to end stories. In his latest work, Fixico, who is Shawnee, Sac and Fox, Mvskoke Creek, and Seminole, invites readers into his own oral tradition to learn how storytelling, legends and prophecies, oral histories, and creation myths knit together and explain the Indian world. Interweaving the storytelling and traditions of his ancestors, Fixico conveys the richness and importance of oral culture in Native communities and demonstrates the power of the spoken word to bring past and present together, creating a shared reality both immediate and historical for Native peoples. Fixico's stories conjure war heroes and ghosts, inspire fear and laughter, explain the past and foresee the future—and through them he skillfully connects personal, familial, tribal, and Native history. Oral tradition, Fixico affirms, at once reflects and creates the unique internal reality of each Native community. Stories possess spiritual energy, and by summoning this energy, storytellers bring their communities together. Sharing these stories, and the larger story of where they come from and how they work, "That's What They Used to Say" offers readers rare insight into the oral traditions at the very heart of Native cultures, in all of their rich and infinitely complex permutations. 19 black-and-white Illustrations, Hardcover, 272 pages, 6" x 9". Donald L. Fixico (Shawnee, Sac and Fox, Mvskoke Creek, and Seminole) is Distinguished Foundation Professor of History and Distinguished Scholar of Sustainability in the Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability at Arizona State University. He is the author or editor of 13 books, including Call for Change: The Medicine Way of American Indian History, Ethos, and Reality. "Once again Donald L. Fixico has produced a provocative work. In 'That's What They Used to Say,' he engages the reader in his examination of Indian oral tradition, interweaving his own autobiography throughout."—Blue Clark, author of Indian Tribes of Oklahoma: A Guide "Donald L. Fixico's stories give us a rich understanding of the power of storytelling in shaping Native community. Fixico's compassion and wry humor bring us together in a difficult time." —Margaret Connell-Szasz,author of Scottish Highlanders and Native Americans: Indigenous Education in the Eighteenth Century Atlantic World "In this chronicle of the importance of storytelling in the Native American experience, Donald L. Fixico provides insights into the spiritual energy of oral tradition, illustrating that stories are much more than just stories." —R. David Edmunds, author of The Potawatomis: Keepers of the Fire

166 FONTANA, BERNARD L; SCHAEFER, JOHN P(PHOTOGRAPHY). Tarahumara: Where Night Is The Day Of The Moon.
University of Arizona Press, Tucson: . s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Inhabiting the Sierra Madre Occidental of southwestern Chihuahua in Mexico, the Tarahumara (or Raramuri) are known in their language as the "foot runners" due to the way in which they must navigate their rugged terrain. This book offers an accessible ethnography of their history, customs, and current life, accompanied by photographs that offer striking images of these gentle people. The subtitle of the book derives from the Tarahumar's belief that the soul works at night while the body sleeps and that during this "day of the moon" both the spirits of the dead and the souls of the living move about in their mysterious ways. As the authors observe, the fact that "so many men, women, and children persist in distinctive, centuries-old cultural traditions in spite of their nearness to all the complexities and attractions of modern industrial society is an importatn part of the story." Their book tells that story and brings readers closer to understanding the Tarahumara world and way of life.

167 FOREMAN, GRANT; DEBO, ANGIE (FOREWORD). Indian Removal: The Emigration Of The Five Civilized Tribes Of Indians.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 1953. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
It is unlikely that any single book or document will ever earn a more firmly-fixed position of respect and authority than this distinguished volume by Grant Foreman. Originally published in 1932, on the date of the hundredth anniversary of the arrival in Oklahoma of the first Indians as a result of the United States government's relocation of the Five Civilized Tribes, Indian Removal remains today the definitive book in its field. The forcible uprooting and expulsion of the 60,000 Indians comprising the Five Civilized Tribes, including the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, Cherokee, and Seminole, unfolded a story without parallel in the history of the United States. For more than a decade thousands of tragedies and experiences of absorbing interest marked the removal over the "Trail of Tears," but there were no chroniclers at hand to record them. Only occasionally did the tragedy and pathos of some phase of this history-making undertaking beguile a sympathetic officer to turn from routine and write a line or a paragraph of comment. From fragments in thousands of manuscripts and in official and unofficial reports Grant Foreman gleaned the materials for this book to provide readers with an unbiased day-by-day recital of events.

168 FORTUNATE EAGLE, ADAM & FINDLEY, TIM; DELORIA, JR., VINE (FOREWORD. Heart Of The Rock: The Indian Invasion Of Alcatraz.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2002. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
In 1969, Richard Oakes and Adam Fortunate Eagle, then known as Adam Nordwall, instigated an invasion of Alcatraz by American Indians. From the mainland, Fortunate Eagle orchestrated the events, but they assumed an uncontrollable life of their own. Fortunate Eagle provides an intimate memoir of the occupation and the events leading up to it. Accompanied by a variety of photographs capturing the people, places, and actions involved, Heart of the Rock brings these turbulent times vividly to life. From the start, public support was strong. Money poured in from around the country. Sausalito sailors and their "navy" transported supplies and people to the island. San Francisco restaurants sent Thanksgiving dinner. A school was started; chores and responsibilities were shared by everyone. Alcatraz became home, and American Indians of all tribes became a family. But the occupation lasted two years, and Oakes, who had become its spokesman, left after his stepdaughter's death on the island. Memoranda from the White House recommended doing "anything" to turn the public against the occupation so it could be ended. Water and electricity were cut off, reports of conflict on the island began appearing in the press, and suspicious fires burned five buildings. Nevertheless, the occupation of Alcatraz remains what historian Vine Deloria, Jr. has called "perhaps the most significant Indian action since the Little Bighorn." Vine Deloria, Jr., Professor of Political Science at the University of Arizona, is the author of a number of books and articles on events affecting the lives of American Indians. He serves as the Executive Director of the National Congress of American Indians and is an active spokesman and leader for the American Indian community throughout the nation. Adam Fortunate Eagle, an enrolled member of the Ojibwe Nation, is the author of Heart of the Rock: The Indian Invasion of Alcatraz. He currently resides on the Fallon Indian Reservation in Nevada. "The text covers some of the nuts and bolts—but mostly it spotlights the men, women, and children who saw in the Alcatraz invasion a chance to speak out to the world. A valuable resource for anyone interested in Native American history." - Booklist "Fortunate Eagle's witty and impassioned recollections will be appreciated by anyone interested in American history or the political upheavals of the 1960's." - Publishers Weekly

170 FORTUNATE EAGLE, ADAM. Pipestone: My Life In An Indian Boarding School.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: . First Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
A renowned activist recalls his childhood years in an Indian boarding school "For those convinced that Indian boarding schools were solely instruments of psychological and cultural oppression, Fortunate Eagle's account will be both surprising and unsettling. Pipestone is artfully told, frequently humorous, and deeply moving."—David Wallace Adams, author of Education for Extinction: American Indians and the Boarding School Experience, 1875-1928 Best known as a leader of the Indian takeover of Alcatraz Island in 1969, Adam Fortunate Eagle now offers an unforgettable memoir of his years as a young student at Pipestone Indian Boarding School in Minnesota. In this rare firsthand account, Fortunate Eagle lives up to his reputation as a "contrary warrior" by disproving the popular view of Indian boarding schools as bleak and prisonlike. Fortunate Eagle attended Pipestone between 1935 and 1945, just as Commissioner of Indian Affairs John Collier's pluralist vision was reshaping the federal boarding school system to promote greater respect for Native cultures and traditions. But this book is hardly a dry history of the late boarding school era. Telling this story in the voice of his younger self, the author takes us on a delightful journey into his childhood and the inner world of the boarding school. Along the way, he shares anecdotes of dormitory culture, student pranks, and warrior games. Although Fortunate Eagle recognizes Pipestone's shortcomings, he describes his time there as nothing less than "a little bit of heaven."

171 FOSTER, MARTHA HARROUN. We Know Who We Are: Metis Identity In A Montana Community.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2006. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
They know who they are. Of predominantly Chippewa, Cree, French, and Scottish descent, the Mtis people have flourished as a distinct ethnic group in Canada and the northwestern United States for nearly two hundred years. Yet their Mtis identity is often ignored or misunderstood in the United States. Unlike their counterparts in Canada, the U.S. Mtis have never received federal recognition. In fact, their very identity has been questioned. In this rich examination of a Mtis community—the first book-length work to focus on the Montana Mtis—Martha Harroun Foster combines social, political, and economic analysis to show how its people have adapted to changing conditions while retaining a strong sense of their own unique culture and traditions. Despite overwhelming obstacles, the Mtis have used the bonds of kinship and common history to strengthen and build their community. As Foster carefully traces the lineage of Mtis families from the Spring Creek area, she shows how the people retained their sense of communal identity. She traces the common threads linking diverse Mtis communities throughout Montana and lends insight into the nature of Mtis identity in general. And in raising basic questions about the nature of ethnicity, this pathbreaking work speaks to the difficulties of ethnic identification encountered by all peoples of mixed descent. Martha Harroun Foster is Assistant Professor of History at Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

173 FOWLER, LORETTA. Wives And Husbands: Gender And Age In Southern Arapaho History.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2010. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
In Wives and Husbands, distinguished anthropologist Loretta Fowler deepens readers' understanding of the gendered dimension of cultural encounters by exploring how the Arapaho gender system affected and was affected by the encounter with Americans as government officials, troops, missionaries, and settlers moved west into Arapaho country. Fowler examines Arapaho history from 1805 to 1936 through the lens of five cohorts, groups of women and men born during different year spans. Through the life stories of individual Arapahos, she vividly illustrates the experiences and actions of each cohort during a time when Americans tried to impose gender asymmetry and to undermine the Arapahos' hierarchical age relations. Fowler examines the Arapaho gender system and its transformations by considering the partnerships between, rather than focusing on comparisons of, women and men. She argues that in particular cohorts, partnerships between women and men — both in households and in the community — shaped Arapahos' social and cultural transformations while they struggled with American domination. Over time Arapahos both reinforced and challenged Arapaho hierarchies while accommodating and resisting American dominance. Fowler shows how, in the process of reconfiguring their world, Arapahos confronted Americans by uniting behind strategies of conciliation in the early nineteenth century, of civilization in the late nineteenth century, and of confrontation in the early twentieth century. At the same time, women and men in particular cohorts were revamping Arapaho politico-religious ideas and organizations. Gender played a part in these transformations, giving shape to new leadership traditions and other adaptations.

176 FULKERSON, MARY LEE; CURTIS, KATHLEEN (PHOTOGRAPHS). Weavers Of Tradition And Beauty: Basketmakers Of The Great Basin.
University of Nevada Press, Reno: 1995. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Weavers of Tradition and Beauty presents new information on contemporary Native American basketry of the Great Basin, largely from the viewpoint of the weavers themselves. In collecting their stories, Kathleen Curtis and Mary Lee Fulkerson traveled throughout Nevada, never dreaming their odyssey over back-roads and to reservations would stretch into years. Finding a deep connection to the people of the sage, the authors accompanied the weavers as they gathered and prepared their special willow, dyed the bracken fern root, and wove their baskets. Baskets—and the people who weave them—have always been revered and honored by Native Americans. Fulkerson and Curtis depict, in text and full color and black and white photographs, how their art prevails—even over adverse environmental, social, and economic conditions. Today, contemporary weavers from the Paiute, Shoshone, and Washoe tribes continue their work by creating baskets in the manner of their ancestors. Teaching their children and grandchildren how to weave baskets, these artisans carry on a long and strong tradition. By documenting the basketry of Nevada's native people, the authors make a significant contribution in preserving this ancient and beautiful craft. Foreword by Catherine S. Fowler. Mary Lee Fulkerson is a basket artist and a fourth generation Nevadan. Her works have been shown in numerous galleries and photographed for national publications. She received her BA in art from the University of Nevada, Reno. Kathleen Curtis received her BA in art from the University of California at Berkeley. She is an artist whose reverence for the earth is reflected in her sculpture and ceremonial baskets. She lives at Donner Lake. "Basketweavers of the Great Basin are paid tribute in a remarkable book. Weavers of Tradition and Beauty: Basketmakers of the Great Basin honors not only the baskets but all the strands that carry on tradition—the People, the land, the materials, the myths, a certain frame of mind which weavers share.... This book is friendly and personal—you meet the weavers, their families, and students." —California Indian Basket Weavers Association Newsletter
