Jerome Rothenberg and George Quasha

Celebrated, controversial, influential, this highly unconventional and ground-breaking anthology of American poetry was widely read and taught throughout the 70s and early 80s. Treating the visionary and the experimental as essential American values, _America, A Prophecy_ maps diverse poetic forms and literary (and nonliterary) milieus, bringing together poets from all styles and schools, men and women equally; innovative poets (Beats, Black Mountain, etc.) academics, Native Americans, Blacks, Asians, Hispanics. This pre-PC multi-cultural perspective does not push ethnic difference or sameness but explores deeply common concerns and equally valid visions. True to its Blakean title, _America, A Prophecy_ is prophetic of openness to unfamiliar voices and new paths of the poetic art up to 1973 as well as being a timeless primer of poetic possibility.

Indian Summer is a collection of 26 full-color photographs, paired with the views of eight Native American authors, capturing remote and powerful American landscapes. The authors include Ohiyesa, Brave Buffalo, Standing Bear, Shooter, Chased-by-Bears, Zitkala-Sa, Crowfoot, and Seattle. Both the photographs and the Native voices make a positive statement about the importance of loving and respecting the land. Standing Bear speaks for many Americans when he says, “From Wakan Tanka there came a a great underlying life force that flowed in and through all things….Thus all things were kindled and brought together by the same Great Mystery.”

The photographs by Ms Wyckoff represent more than 30 years of photographing nature throughout the United States. They have appeared in gallery exhibitions, as cover and internal art in various publications, and are owned by numerous private collectors.

“For the deer and the grasses I have written this book, so that we may again be At One with them.” Thus writes Tamarack Song, in this extraordinary, practical guide to native lifeways- the essential wisdom connecting all native peoples. The book speaks to readers of every background who seek a connection with their essential self- that person, deep within each of us “who dances to the Drum around the ritual Fire, who knows healing lore from times when plants spoke, who yearns for the peace and Blessings of walking again in the Balance of Our Earth.” In clear but evocative language, the author shares his unique message: that the lifeways of all Native peoples are essentially one, sharing not just the same ceremonies and life transitions, but the same spirit and reverence for life; and that all of us, regardless of ethnic background or religious upbringing, are essentially Native people. The book begins by demonstrating how native lifeways- the ways of the Guardian Warrior, the caretaking of children, the reverence for elders (“Keepers of the Ancestral Voice”)- are intrinsic to the human experience. Drawing on a series of native traditions, from fasting and feasting- to dreams and the receiving of visions, the book shows the reader how to bring to life intuitive, sensory, and spiritual powers long-hidden.

This large format book presents forty-five dramatic, sumptuous, and empathetic black-&-white photographs, printed in duotone, with a succinct and poignant text by the photographer. The text tells the story of how, following a diagnosis of an incurable disease, the Italian-born author/photographer, then living in New York, undertakes a search for healing and spiritual transformation. This culminates in a Lakota Sioux Healing Ceremony and Vision Quest at the Pine Hill Reservation in South Dakota. While staying at the reservation, the author comes to know the Lakota people and love their spirit. The photographs were made during this time of personal crisis and spiritual awakening, and this book is dedicated to the Lakota people in appreciation of their warmth and wisdom.

Patton Boyle

This visionary narrative, reminiscent of Robert Bach’s Illusions, follows the spiritual initiation of a white Christian into the Native American tradition and reveals a deeper Christian impulse that is consistent with Native American wisdom. Set in the western United States on an unnamed Indian reservation, the novel describes the seeker, a White Man who has come to the home of Native American medicine man, Flying Eagle. Through Flying Eagle’s teachings on a variety of subjects, the protagonist awakens to a new understanding of self, the nature of truth, and the role of a warrior for truth. With reverberations of Carlos Castaneda, Screaming Hawk becomes not just a novel of traditional and Native American religion, but also a compelling spiritual journey for its readers.

Mary Elizabeth Thunder

Abandoned by her mother when she was three years old, Mary Elizabeth Thunder survived abuse, a broken marriage, and a heart attack to become one of the most highly esteemed leaders in the Native American movement -healer, visionary, teacher, and chosen successor in a native tradition. Her story is also the true tale of a remarkable elder, Grandma Grace Spotted Eagle, who adopted her and guided her to spiritual awakening as a messenger. At once harrowing and uplifting, this memoir takes us from her early life and experiences with the legendary elders Chief Leonard Crow Dog, Wallace Black Elk, and Rolling Thunder, through a near-death experience that utterly transformed her, to nine remarkable years spent traveling America by van, culminating in her inclusion in the Sun Dance, one of the world’s oldest and most venerable initiation ceremonies. Intimate, painfully honest, essentially and overwhelmingly spiritual, this is a book about a woman’s quest for meaning amid two cultures and a compelling account of the visionary underpinnings of Native American life.
