About the Author

Presently a senior scholar at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, Jose Barreiro is a novelist, essayist, and an activist of nearly four decades on American Indigenous hemispheric themes.

For ten years, they served as joint coordinators on numerous Indigenous human rights and community building campaigns. As editor of Cornell University’s Akwe:kon Press from 1984 to 2002, and later as senior editor of Indian Country Today, Barreiro published dozens of Mohawk’s essays and columns. Barreiro is a member of the Taino Nation of the Antilles.

John Mohawk is an elder of the Seneca Nation and an Iroquois traditionalist. He is also an accomplished philosopher and Native American issues activist whose impact and influence of 20th Century Native American affairs over the past three decades has been exceptionally influential. "Thinking in Indian: A John Mohawk Reader" is a 320-page compendium of John Mohawk's writings that has been deftly compiled and expertly edited by novelist, essayist, Native American activist Jose Barreiro. Barreiro first became involved with John Mohawk when he was recruited by Mohawk to help publish the national Native American newspaper 'Akwesasne Notes' (published for the Mohawk Nation. Drawing upon his considerable experience and expertise (Barreiro has also published dozens of Mohawk's essays and columns), in "Thinking in Indian: A John Mohawk Reader", Barreiro and Fulcrum Publishing are providing a seminal and valued contribution to Contemporary Native American Studies collections for personal reading lists, as well as academic and community library collections.

Format: Paperback
Once again we see why the People of the Longhouse Confederacy were the heart and soul of Turtle Island. The Five nations and later the Six nations protected the 13 Fires from Black Robe domination allowing Humanism and democracy to survive.A little known fact that by the Mohawks being Allies with the Dutch and later early English colonists New Netherland's Hebrew population were safe from Catholic New France, (yes Jews came around the time of the Mayflower too). Unfortunately the very French forces the Longhouse protected America from came to the Longhouse door to burn, convert and plant disease.John Mohawk gives history from A Iroquois perspective and a perspective greater then a personel perspective. The Confederacy idea of seven generations of good results shines here in his writings.
The Akwasasne notes were a huge inflence on the counter cultures First Nation issues awareness and like the brilliance of the Longouse Confederacy it like John Mohawk sought to raise all people's awareness that the brotherhood of man includes ALL things that live on Turtle Island. This book contains a window into the heart of John Mohawk and the mind of the Longhouse Confederacy. Let us give thanks.

Format: Paperback
Reading the essays in Thinking in Indian is a breath of fresh air. I wish it were required reading in high schools. The variety of subjects in the different essays takes one much deeper into the philosophy of Indian culture. I try to understand why I want to give a book 5 stars. I read this book as research for a novel I am writing to understand their culture and review my own judgements. I think this book opens a space to understand our Indian racism. Only understanding how they actually think, not how we've been taught they think, will open doors in our hearts to compassion.

It's too bad this isn't better known--definitely offers a different, rich perspective on the Americas and the world. I'd recommend it for anyone who enjoys being challenged to question the everyday and the status quo.

The book is easy to read, short chapters, but it gives a different perspective on the historical endurance of what the Native American Indian have been subjected to. The reader will find out that the "special treatment" that Native American Indians receive, as perceived by Western society, has a basis in the treaties, agreements and Congressional laws that were ratified, enacted or amended as part of the history of the United States. It brings reality to the Hollywood portrayal of Native American Indians.
