Native American Books by Native American Authors
Cherokee writer Joyce Sequichie Hifler is back with what she does best - daily inspirations drawn from the philosophy and teachings of the Cherokee and other tribes, along with her own brand of heartfelt inspirational writing.
Think on These Things teaches us to change our thinking in order to change our circumstances. Hifler writes about everyday life, helping her readers perceive Spirit and align themselves with their own inner power.
"The Song of the Nightbird," says the author, "is a serenade to life." In When the Night Bird Sings, Hifler pays tribute to the simple blessings of daily life and shares the lessons she learned from those who nurtured her with wisdom and love during her childhood in Cherokee Country.
This is a book about John Trudell written by Paola Igliori. Many years ago, I heard John Trudell speak for the first time...I was ten. I was intrigued by the way the words flowed out, ordinary words forged in fire and flame, in sycronicity with the passion of the cause.

Spirit Car is a moving account of Diane Wilson's journey to find her Dakota heritage. It captures the experiences of her many mixed blood Native American ancestors from the Lower Sioux Reservation on the Minnesota River, beginning before, during and after the Dakota War of 1962.
“Far greater even than the loss of land, or the relentless coercion to surrender cultural traditions, the deaths of over six hundred children by the spring of 1864 were an unbearable tragedy. Nearly one hundred and fifty years after the U.S.–Dakota War of 1862, Dakota people are still struggling with the effects of this unimaginable loss.”
