Through centuries of unwelcome change and anguishing trials, Native Americans have held onto their heritages and histories. With this collection of sayings, distinguished Rosebud Sioux author Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve and award-winning Cherokee-and-African-American artist Synthia Saint James pay tribute to the wisdom that has helped sustain these peoples. These sayings come from many tribes. They are from elders and teenagers, from those who lived long ago and from authors writing today, from renowned leaders and from ordinary tribal members. This rich and thoughtful compilation honors Native American cultures and shares their enduring wisdom.
