George Carlin featured the complete disappearance of the Native American way of life; so he did ethnographic fieldwork throughout the people of North America. Studying their habits, customers, modes of life, and other aspects of culture, his work eventually resulted in over 400 oil paintings, as well as the journals within this book. 50 reproductions of his artwork are also included. 522 pages, indexed, softcover.

In 1675 Algonquian Indians all over southern New England rose up against the Puritan colonists with whom they had lived peacefully for several decades. The result was the bloodiest war in American history, a terrifying conflict in which the Puritans found themselves fighting with a cruelty they had only thought the natives capable of. By August 1676, when the severed head of the wampanoag leader, King Phillip, was displayed in Plymouth, thousands of Indian and English men, women and children were dead. More than half of the new towns in New England had been wiped out, and the settlers' sense of themselves as civilized people of God had been deeply shaken. By skillfully interpreting reactions to the war on both sides of the racial divide, historian Jill Lepore reveals the crucial role of the conflict played in shaping the colonists' and the Indians' ideas of themselves and of each other - ideas that have held sway for more than three centuries. More profoundly, she shows us that the lasting effects of war are felt not in how many lives are lost, but in how brutality is justified and how war is remembered.

Nine articles and an extensive introduction aptly depict different aspects of Native American spirituality. Varied religious experiences of the contributors provide a diverse viewpoint on how the sacred is experienced by the aboriginal peoples of North America.

This "anthropology of the sacred" is delineated in essays covering Native Northwestern California, Absaroke (Crow), Creek (Muskogee), Lakota (Souix), Navajo, Mescalero Apache, Tlingit, and Central Yup'ik (Eskimo) cultures. The concluding article gives a seldom seen glimpse into Native North American Indian literature.

Extensive footnotes and copious bibliographies for many of the articles give additional insight and information for further research. A welcome addition to any library for its broad coverage, Native Religions and Cultures of North America can also be used in classroom settings due to both for its content and adaptability.

Designed to accompany the first Bible printed in America--translated into the Massachusett language--this grammar was published in 1666 to aid both ministers and the Natives learning to read the Bible in their own language. It is also used today by Algonkian Natives who are learning their own language again. The original typeset is on the left-hand page while the facing page has been cleaned up, including switching the archaic "long s" to a modern "s", and employing a more readable, modern, font. 66 pages, softcover.

In the Hands of the Great Spirit: The 20,000-Year History of American IndiansIn the Hands of the Great Spirit: The 20,000-Year History of American Indians

The story of the American Indians has, until now, been told as a 500-year tragedy, a story of violent and fatal encounters with Europeans and their diseases, followed by steady retreat, defeat, and diminishment. Yet the true story begins much earlier, and its final recent chapter adds a major twist. Jake Page, one of the Southwest's most distinguished writers and a longtime student of Indian history and culture, tells a radically new story, thanks to an explosion of recent archaeological findings, the latest scholarship, and an exploration of Indian legends. Covering no less than 20,000 years, In the Hands of the Great Spirit will forever change how we think about the oldest and earliest Americans.
Page writes gracefully and sympathetically, without sentimentality. He explores every controversy, from the question of cannibalism among tribes, to the various theories of when and how humans first arrived on the continent, to what life was actually like for Indians before the Europeans came. Page dispels the popular image of a peaceful and idyllic Eden, and shows that Indian societies were fluid, constantly transformed by intertribal fighting, population growth, and shifting climates.
Page uses Indian legends and stories as tools to uncover tribal origins, cultural values, and the meaning of certain rituals and sacred lands. He tells the story of contact with Europeans, and the multipower conflicts of the Seven Years War, the Revolutionary War, and the War of 1812, from the Indians' point of view. He explains the complex and shifting role of the U.S. government as expressed through executive decisions and through the role of the courts. Finally, he tells the fascinating story of the late-twentieth-century upsurge in Indian population and resources, which began as a social movement and exploded once casinos came into fashion.
Author and editor of over a dozen books on American Indian life and culture, Page is a masterful teller of this incredible story. In the Hands of the Great Spirit will forever change the familiar story of recent centuries, replacing it with a far more sweeping and meaningful story of tribes and peoples who have suffered enormously yet endure and enrich the American experience.
