Roger Williams' guide to the language of the Native American tribes was the first of its kind ever published; as well as linguistic instruction, we receive stunning insights into the culture and... More > customs of the New England tribes. This historic text was written to accomplish two goals: Firstly, it is a practical, instructional guidebook written with the colonial society in mind. Particularly where religious missions are concerned, but also in general, the author feels that colonialists should have a command of Native American languages. Williams passionately believed in peaceful coexistence, and realized that an understanding of the native speech was crucial for this. Secondly, the book aims to promote understanding of Native American culture. What customs the tribes practice, the foods they eat, their marital and social mores, their methods of communicating knowledge, how they regard the many beasts of nature, and how trade and commerce is practiced are but some of the topics Williams discusses.< Less
Seminole Mascot: Osceola, the Seminole Tribe, and their celebration by Florida State University By James B. Ford
Paperback: $4.44
Prints in 3-5 business days
"Seminole Mascot" is on the Native American mascot controversy. In that controversy, FSU's fans, students and alumni, are all deemed “racist.” And at least one activist has... More > called the Seminole “hang around the fort Indians,” because they let FSU use their name. And so some activists put this controversy in terms of “good against evil.” The evil - of course - is the unfeeling, all-encompassing “White Oppressor.” But the truth seems a bit more complex, as explored in the 27 chapters of this book. Each chapter is no more than three pages long, including notes, and is modeled after a newspaper-style column. These 27 columns explore topics including the conflict between cherished First Amendment freedoms. For example, here free speech is pitted against the right of a people to have their "sacred images" treated with respect. Through it all there is much to learn from the "unconquered Seminole," prime examples of the kind of "freedom and defiance" we could use about now.< Less

REV. DANIEL S. BUTRICK’S “INDIAN ANTIQUITIES”: By David James Tackett
Paperback: $18.46

This is the story of an obsessed reverend who embarked on a mission to champion the cause of the Cherokee whom he perceived to be lost Israelites. His advocacy on their behalf represents one of the... More > finer moments in Indian mission history. Rev. Butrick’s expression of faith stood in sharp contrast to the version of Christianity practiced by his fellow Americans. He advocated against his compatriot’s abuse and neglect of the Indians by choosing to live a life characterized by a deep love and respect for the Cherokee. He sought to prove that Indians were descendants of the lost ten tribes of Israel as an expression of his hope for their spiritual restoration. I have appreciated Butrick’s writings for his honesty about his personal failures and his persistence to do what he knew was right when none of his fellows would. His struggles and disappointments spoke to me about what it means to hope for redemption amidst seemingly lost causes.< Less
