I was hoiping to start a thread for other to post books related to Native American studies (inlcuding history, culture and spiritual practices). I myself am unfortunate in that I have no suggestions to give myself. But I created this thread to change that. Please post any books you feel well help not myself but others find great books and authors on the subject. All suggestions are welcome and appriciated.

Beatus Esse!

Diné, A History of the Navajos by Peter Iverson


Beyond the Lodge of the Sun (Inner mysteries of the Native American way) by Chokecherry Gall Eagle


Wisdomkeepers (Meetings with Native American spiritual elders) by Steve Wall & Harvey Arden


"Wisdomkeepers" is my favorite among the many books I own about Native Americans.  The tribal elders interviewed for this book represent the Ute, Lakota, Onondaga, Seneca, Shinnecock, Ojibway, Lumbee, Hoh, Seminole, Mohawk, Hopi, Pawnee, and Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy.


A dvd I'd highly recommend to any serious student of Native Americans would be Our Spirits Don't Speak English: Indian Boarding School (NA-owned Rich-Heape Films).  It's a documentary that gives voice to the countless Indian children who government policy forced to attend these schools.  I have a Navajo friend who knows very little about "the People" (Diné) due to that system.  It's very sad ...
