A collection of photographs, stories, and oral traditions from a broad range of Native American experiences and tribal customs. Johnson spent three years collecting personal histories of 30 elders from 19 tribes, spanning 13 states in the US and Canada. The elders are important spiritual, political, and cultural figures in their communities, and include spiritual healers, speakers at the United Nations, political and environmental activists, and grandparents. Black-and-white portraits illuminate the elders' words. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
