"In this thought-provoking and sensitive book, a noted Jungian scholar explores the deepest elements in the American psyche that need healing to bring forth the best in both of the worlds we walk in: the highly differentiated and technologically developed Western civilization and the indigenous native "soul" that is the essence of each human being. The author demonstrates that this soul is forcefully represented in America in the experience of the Native American peoples and their relationship to the land and to the ancient "indigenous one" at the heart of our human origins."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Here Virgil Wyaco, a Zuni Indian elder and leader, recounts his life in both the traditional Zuni and modern Anglo worlds. As a boy, Wyaco learned Zuni ways from his family and the English language and vocational skills in Anglo schools. Earning a Bronze Star during World War II, he killed German soldiers in combat and participated in the summary execution of SS guards at Dachau. His postwar career included college at the University of New Mexico, federal employment, marriage to a Cherokee woman, and family life in the suburbs. Later, Wyaco returned to Zuni as postmaster and married a traditional Zuni woman. His election to the Zuni tribal council in 1970 quickly established him as an influential leader. His varied career demonstrates the heartbreaks and rewards of a Native American life bridging two cultures in the twentieth century.

"This revised and updated edition combines the most important writings of Charles Eastman (Ohiyesa), who was the first American Indian medical doctor (the physician at Wounded Knee) as well as the co-founder of the Boy Scouts of America. Born in 1858, his writings are unique because he was the only great American Indian author who was actually raised to young adulthood in the traditional nomadic life of the pre-reservation era. At the 1933 World's Fair, he was presented with a special medal honoring the most distinguished achievements by an American Indian."--BOOK JACKET.

After five centuries of Eurocentrism, many people have little idea that Native American tribes still exist, or which traditions belong to what tribes. However over the past decade there has been a rising movement to accurately describe Native cultures and histories. In particular, people have begun to explore the experience of urban Indians—individuals who live in two worlds struggling to preserve traditional Native values within the context of an ever-changing modern society. In Genocide of the Mind, the experience and determination of these people is recorded in a revealing and compelling collection of essays that brings the Native American experience into the twenty-first century. Contributors include: Paula Gunn Allen, Simon Ortiz, Sherman Alexie, Leslie Marmon Silko, and Maurice Kenny, as well as emerging writers from different Indian nations.

For high school and adult readers this autobiography of Polingaysi Qoyawayma (Elizabeth Q. White) relates a Hopi Indian woman's struggle to adjust to an alien culture and to develop teaching methods to bridge the gap between Indians and the white world. Information on Hopi legends and ceremonies introduce the reader to the Hopi way of life. Born in 1892 at Old Orabai, Arizona, Polingaysi's early childhood coincided with changes in the old ways of Hopi life and growing influence of white missionaries and traders. She saw education as a way to better her condition and that of her family and left the pueblo to attend a government school and the Sherman Institute. She was befriended by and worked for white teachers and Mennonite missionaires, developing her gift for singing and trained for mission work. She discovered an interest in and ability for teaching and became the first Hopi to teach in Hopi schools. She developed innovative teaching methods using familiar stories and experiences to teach English and persisted despite opposition from white teaching staffs. She established funding efforts for college scholarships for Hopi students and after retirement from the career described in the book, became a prize-winning potter. (LFL)
