About the Author

After the death of his parents, LaVan was taken in by a Paiute names Edrick Bushhead and raised as his son. He learned the language, songs, religion, and customs of the Paiute people. Always eager for knowledge, as a young man he began to take hand-written notes of the stories he heard from the elders. As the years passed he sensed that one day some of these teachings would be abandoned by the younger generation as they adopted more of the ways of the white man.

Format: Hardcover
Lavan Martineau and Sapir were two authors who have studied the Southern Paiutes. Sapir did it as a professional liguist, from the outside in. Lavan, being adopted by Edrick Bad Moon Bushhead, a Southern Paiute, got to study them from the inside. Being one of them he really got inside the Southern Paiute mind and takes you on an inside cultural historical tour. His knowledge of the language is excellent. I remember him from my childhood as we both explored Paiute lore. He had a notebook always ready for language notes. He went on to interview the tribal elders before they died off thus aquiring valuable family history information. Much of what he learned is in his book. His findings form the foundation of my work as the Southern Paiute tribal genealogist.

I bought this to study the Ute/Paiute language since so many of the southwest Colorado names are of Ute origin and I am fascinated by languages.
It is a compilation of the Paiute/Ute language which both have origins in the same language. It is interesting to read the words and find thier meaning and apply them to actual placed that are named with Ute words.

It may be that this book is designed more as a scholarly look at the Paiute legends and history. It definitely isn't something to pick up for an enjoyable read. I would recommend it to someone who is doing a report for school, but not to someone looking for an entertaining book to read about Paiute legends.

Someone borrowed my copy and never returned it.
This book is an excellent resource if your're Paiute or researching Paiute language, history, or traditional lifestyle.
