Explanation of the Book:

When he was out playing Indian, enacting Hollywood-inspired scenarios, it never occurred to the child Roger Welsch that the little girl sitting next to him in school was Indian. A lifetime of learning later, Welsch’s enthusiasm is undimmed, if somewhat more enlightened. In Embracing Fry Bread Welsch tells the story of his lifelong relationship with Native American culture, which, beginning in earnest with the study of linguistic practices of the Omaha tribe during a college anthropology course, resulted in his becoming an adopted member and kin of both the Omaha and the Pawnee tribes. With requisite humility and a healthy dose of humor, Welsch describes his long pilgrimage through Native life, from lessons in the vagaries of “Indian time” and the difficulties of reservation life, to the joy of being allowed to participate in special ceremonies and developing a deep and lasting love of fry bread. Navigating another culture is a complicated task, and Welsch shares his mistakes and successes with engaging candor. Through his serendipitous wanderings, he finds that the more he learns about Native culture the more he learns about himself—and about a way of life whose allure offers true insight into indigenous America.

Editor: Duke University Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Alaska is home to more than two hundred federally recognized tribes. Yet the long histories and diverse cultures of Alaska’s first peoples are often ignored, while the stories of Russian fur hunters and American gold miners, of salmon canneries and oil pipelines, are praised. Filled with essays, poems, songs, stories, maps, and visual art, this volume foregrounds the perspectives of Alaska Native people, from a Tlingit photographer to Athabascan and Yup’ik linguists, and from an Alutiiq mask carver to a prominent Native politician and member of Alaska’s House of Representatives. The contributors, most of whom are Alaska Natives, include scholars, political leaders, activists, and artists. The majority of the pieces in The Alaska Native Reader were written especially for the volume, while several were translated from Native languages. The Alaska Native Reader describes indigenous worldviews, languages, arts, and other cultural traditions as well as contemporary efforts to preserve them. Several pieces examine Alaska Natives’ experiences of and resistance to Russian and American colonialism; some of these address land claims, self-determination, and sovereignty. Some essays discuss contemporary Alaska Native literature, indigenous philosophical and spiritual tenets, and the ways that Native peoples are represented in the media. Others take up such diverse topics as the use of digital technologies to document Native cultures, planning systems that have enabled indigenous communities to survive in the Arctic for thousands of years, and a project to accurately represent Dena’ina heritage in and around Anchorage. Fourteen of the volume’s many illustrations appear in color, including work by the contemporary artists Subhankar Banerjee, Perry Eaton, Erica Lord, and Larry McNeil.

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Despite the Western diet high in meat and dairy products, much of the rest of the world has traditionally followed a primarily or entirely vegetarian diet. Tragically, there has been a dramatic transition in the latter as world meat production has increased about 10 times the world population growth rate in just a few decades. I have witnessed the transition to a diet high in animal products in places as beautiful as Micronesia and sub-Saharan Africa, where diseases such as diabetes and heart disease have just begun to rear their ugly heads. This grave trend also multiplies the devastating consequences for the environment worldwide and for the countless billions of animals killed each year for food-10 billion land animals and 10 billion sea animals in the United States alone. Many of us wonder what steps we can take to make a difference in the world. Here, the answer is simple. Following a vegan diet is the first and foremost step to improve the condition of the environment, human health, and the lives of animals. Around the World Vegan Style tells you how and why. Hope Ferdowsian, M.D., M.P.H. In Around the World Vegan Style, Nancy Robinson unites all people of the globe through a single common bond- the love of delicious food! In its pages you'll find authentic recipes all free of animal products and featuring chefs' specialties, all sure to please your palate and increase your appreciation for global cuisine. Let Around the World Vegan Style turn your kitchen into a travel adventure for your tongue, while healthfully nourishing yourself, your family, and friends. Welcome aboard. The journey to worldwide taste delights starts here! Michael Klaper, M.D. Author: Vegan Nutrition: Pure and Simple Nancy Robinson's cookbook could not come at a better time. The whole world is beginning to realize that animal agriculture-a major source of water pollution and deforestation-is one of the biggest culprits in global warming. The 2007 United Nations report shows that farmed animals are a top contributor to today's serious environmental problems, including greenhouse gases. The global increase in meat consumption also causes rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other diet-related illnesses to soar. If we're going to reverse the damage we've done to our health and the environment, we have to begin now. Around the World Vegan Style is a step in that direction. Patrice Green, M.D., J.D. Assistant Professor, University of Maryland School of Medicine Faculty Member, Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Fellow, American College of Legal Medicine There is just food and the land to grow that food. If we can all just realize this simple fact for one moment, and stop fighting over the land that holds the roots that support the tree that bears the fruit that feeds the child, then maybe, just maybe...peace. Around the World Vegan Style is more than a cookbook. Nancy Robinson shares how the vegan lifestyle embraces all facets of just food for all life. George Eisman, Registered Dietition, Teacher, and Clinician Author, The Most Noble Diet I'm delighted to recommend Around the World Vegan Style. Nancy Robinson's cooking is out of this world. Luckily, her superb recipes from around the world are right here in this book. Nancy combines exquisite flavors with the most sumptuous dining experience.

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Smoke Signals is a historical milestone in Native American filmmaking. Released in 1998 and based on a short-story collection by Sherman Alexie, it was the first wide-release feature film written, directed, coproduced, and acted by Native Americans. The most popular Native American film of all time, Smoke Signals is also an innovative work of cinematic storytelling that demands sustained critical attention in its own right. Embedded in Smoke Signals’s universal story of familial loss and renewal are uniquely Indigenous perspectives about political sovereignty, Hollywood’s long history of misrepresentation, and the rise of Indigenous cinema across the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Joanna Hearne’s work foregrounds the voices of the filmmakers and performers—in interviews with Alexie and director Chris Eyre, among others—to explore the film’s audiovisual and narrative strategies for speaking to multiple audiences. In particular, Hearne examines the filmmakers’ appropriation of mainstream American popular culture forms to tell a Native story. Focusing in turn on the production and reception of the film and issues of performance, authenticity, social justice, and environmental history within the film’s text and context, this in-depth introduction and analysis expands our understanding and deepens our enjoyment of a Native cinema landmark.

Editor: University of Oklahoma Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Open this book and who knows what will pop out: the story of a gangland funeral, a status report on an ex-husband, a meditation on cats and gardens, a feuilleton about Native American fry bread, or a thoughtful musing on old women and books. Welcome to the delightfully irreverent world of Connie Cronley, essayist, radio commentator, and native Oklahoman. In this collection of true stories, Cronley pokes fun at everything—including herself—as she delights in the world around her. With her trademark down-home humor, Cronley takes on a range of subjects as broad as the Oklahoma prairies. No subject is off-limits as the author casts her curious eye on vampire literature, gay insects, air-dried laundry, Emily Post etiquette, and impossible dogs. As she says, “It’s a big world and there’s a lot to know.” Poke a Stick at It is also a love letter to the glories of the English language. Even as Cronley fusses around her garden or snoozes on the couch with her cat Muriel, she always has a stack of books within easy reach. Her eclectic passion for reading, embracing the lowbrow and the highbrow, the epic romance Gone with the Wind and the poems of Emily Dickinson, is both infectious and inspiring. Often compared to authors Annie Dillard, Phyllis McGinley, Robert Benchley, and Mark Twain, Connie Cronley is a Southwest original, a writer who infuses her stories with joy, humor, beauty—and plenty of spice.

She found yeast breads as varied as Amish Pinwheel Bread and Roasted Sweet Pepper Bread, as well as naturally leavened breads like Brewhouse Bread and whole grain breads like Northern Prairie Barley Bread. There are also buns and rolls, as well as quick biscuits, popovers, and crackers. Along with elegant tea breads and homey muffins there are scrumptious coffeecakes, kuchens, and strudels. Last but not least, there are recipes for accompaniments and for using up leftovers.

Winner of the American Book Award and the Murray Morgan Prize, Sherman Alexie’s brilliant first novel tells a powerful tale of Indians, rock ’n’ roll, and redemption Coyote Springs is the only all-Indian rock band in Washington State—and the entire rest of the world.

The band sings its own brand of the blues, full of poverty, pain, and loss—but also joy and laughter. It all started one day when legendary bluesman Robert Johnson showed up on the Spokane Indian Reservation with a magical guitar, leaving it on the floor of Thomas Builds-the-Fire’s van after setting off to climb Wellpinit Mountain in search of Big Mom. In Reservation Blues, National Book Award winner Alexie vaults with ease from comedy to tragedy and back in a tour-de-force outing powered by a collision of cultures: Delta blues and Indian rock.
