The Last Great Battle is happening now and concerns whether traditional ways of life will continue or whether they will be terminated. This was our book group selection for Sunday March 8, 2015 and we had the added pleasure of having the author attend the discussion. Some interesting points for me was the references Mark made to Vine Deloria’s book, though one he did not list but I brought up was God is Red which is my favorite. He agreed that it was a wonderful book in which Deloria describes the main difference between Western belief systems and Native Religions as being a difference between conceptual schema’s – which people will fight for – and stories based on how one should live in a particular place. There was also agreement among the group that so called Western cultures as conceived by those present do not have a sense of place or roots in a particular place that a person calls home (other than a place they may have lived for a long time and consider their home) but we generally cannot trace our ancestry for generation upon generation as having lived “here” in this place. But Natives can and do and the stories associated with their religions are their directions for living in a place in harmony with the animals that are coexisting with them. How to hunt a particular bird, and so forth. While this difference in cultures is not discussed in the book, the central challenge for a young person growing up in a reservation may very well be the choice of whether to live the traditional life or to live the life of a modern individual – with the apparent dilemma of not being able to do both together. While both the Native language and the modern language can be fluently learned it seems those who can do both are few.Read more ›

Indian History = Indian Law = Indian Policy. We cannot move thoughtful Indian policy unless we know our past. This should be required reading for all in Indian Country who want to move "the ball forward" for the betterment of our communities.

More About the Author

I am an independent journalist and author. My most recent work is The Last Great Battle of the Indian Wars. It's about the relationship between Sen. Henry M. Jackson and Forrest Gerard, that produced a remarkable era of legislation to improve the lot for American Indians and Alaska Natives. I am also a Twitter poet ... every day I write a news poem in under 140 characters. You can find my work @newsrimes4lines. I live on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation in southeastern Idaho. My official biography is at my web site, trahantreports.com
