Voices of a Thousand People is the story of one Native community?s efforts to found their own museum and empower themselves to represent their ancient traditional lifeways, their historic experiences with colonialism, and their contemporary efforts to preserve their heritage for generations to come. This ethnography richly portrays how a community embraced the archaeological discovery of Ozette village in 1970 and founded the Makah Cultural and Research Center (MCRC) in 1979. Oral testimonies, participant observation, and archival research weave a vivid portrait of a cultural center that embodies the self-image of a Native American community in tension with the identity assigned to it by others.

The "Thousand Voices in the Night" are friends, neighbors, strangers you pass every day, even family members. They are the wounded whose walk with the Lord has been impacted by abuse, and are searching for answers. They are the hurting with which God seeks to restore a lasting, loving, healing relationship. Debi knows because for so many years her voice was one of them. Growing up in an abusive home where she endured years of emotional, physical and sexual abuse she often wondered where God was in her life, and if He ever heard her prayers. If He did hear, did He really care? Yet hers is not a story of defeat, but of victory! Allow Debi to infect you with her zest for life, her deep and abiding faith in Jesus Christ and her passion for helping others as she shares her remarkable story of a life truly redeemed. Debi resides in Athens, Alabama with her husband Harry and daughters Kimberly and Kristin. She holds a Masters in Educational Psychology from the University of Texas. For the past twenty years Debi has dedicated her life to preventing and helping others overcome the damaging effects of child abuse and domestic violence by serving with a number of various agencies and organizations including: the Army Family Advocacy Program, Family and Child Educational Services of Coffee County, the National Children's Advocacy Center, the Huntsville Association for Pastoral Care, Partnership for a Drug Free Community, and the Mental Health Center of Madison County. As a regional trainer with the North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church she has assisted numerous churches of various denominations throughout Alabama develop policies and procedures to protect children in their care from being hurt. Since 1992 she has facilitated support groups for adult survivors of childhood abuse.

Guided By Voices Bee Thousand

Marc Woodworth's book covers the album's long and unorthodox period of writing, recording, sequencing, and editing. It includes interviews with members of the band, manager Pete Jamison, web-master and GBV historian Rich Turiel and Robert Griffin of Scat Records. At least sixty-five songs were recorded and considered for the album and five distinct concepts were rejected before the band hit upon the records final form. One late version, very nearly released, contained only a few of Bee Thousand's definitive songs. The rest were left out and nearly ended up in the boxes of cassette out-takes cluttering up Robert Pollard's basement. The story of Guided By Voices transformation from an occasional and revolving group of complete unknowns to indie-rock heroes is very much part of the story behind the making of Bee Thousand. In addition to providing a central account of how the record was made, Woodworth devotes a substantial chapter to the album's lyrics. Robert Pollard's lyrics are described by critics, when they're described at all, as a brand of tossed-off surrealism, as if his verbal sensibility is somehow incidental to the songs themselves. Nothing could be further from the truth. Woodworth offers a sustained discussion of Pollard's work as a writer of often sublime, beautiful, and very human lyrics. The third key section of the book covers aesthetics. Woodworth considers the great appeal of the do-it-yourself nature of Bee Thousand and reflects on the larger importance of the strain of alternative rock for which this record is a touchstone.

Decolonizing Museums

Museum exhibitions focusing on Native American history have long been curator controlled. However, a shift is occurring, giving Indigenous people a larger role in determining exhibition content. In Decolonizing Museums, Amy Lonetree examines the complexities of these new relationships with an eye toward exploring how museums can grapple with centuries of unresolved trauma as they tell the stories of Native peoples. She investigates how museums can honor an Indigenous worldview and way of knowing, challenge stereotypical representations, and speak the hard truths of colonization within exhibition spaces to address the persistent legacies of historical unresolved grief in Native communities. Lonetree focuses on the representation of Native Americans in exhibitions at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian, the Mille Lacs Indian Museum in Minnesota, and the Ziibiwing Center of Anishinabe Culture and Lifeways in Michigan. Drawing on her experiences as an Indigenous scholar and museum professional, Lonetree analyzes exhibition texts and images, records of exhibition development, and interviews with staff members. She addresses historical and contemporary museum practices and charts possible paths for the future curation and presentation of Native lifeways.
