In 1890, on Indian reservations across the West, followers of a new religion danced in circles until they collapsed into trances. In an attempt to suppress this new faith, the US Army killed over two hundred Lakota Sioux at Wounded Knee Creek. Louis Warren's God's Red Son offers a startling new view of the religion known as the Ghost Dance, from its origins in the visions of a Northern Paiute named Wovoka to the tragedy in South Dakota. To this day, the Ghost Dance remains widely mischaracterized as a primitive and failed effort by Indian militants to resist American conquest and return to traditional ways. In fact, followers of the Ghost Dance sought to thrive in modern America by working for wages, farming the land, and educating their children, tenets that helped the religion endure for decades after Wounded Knee. God's Red Son powerfully reveals how Ghost Dance teachings helped Indians retain their identity and reshape the modern world.

Also Called Sacajawea

Anthropologist Tom Johnson, a long-time fieldworker among the Eastern Shoshone Indians, unfolds a captivating story of mistaken identity, manipulated facts, and disputed legend involving Sacajawea, the young Shoshone who accompanied the Lewis and Clark expedition. For over a hundred years, many have believed Sacajawea rejoined her people at Wind River where she died and was buried in 1884. Conclusive evidence surfaced in the 1950s that the woman in that grave was not Sacajawea. Through his careful unraveling of Shoshone oral tradition, bolstered by the discovery of a key historical document, Johnson strips away decades of cover-up to reveal the Wind River Sacajaweas true identity without discrediting Shoshone history and values. The reader is invited onto a contemporary reservation to share in conversations with Native people who have a stake in both perpetuating and disputing the legend of Sacajawea. Also Called Sacajawea touches upon a universal ethnohistorical theme: the elevation of oral tradition to honor the beliefs about ancestors. It also illuminates how the dominant culture imposes its values and attitudes on Native people.
