Native American Wit and Wisdom: Words in the Wind


Native American Wit and Wisdom: Words in the Wind

It all began in 1998 with Donald and Teresa Yates’s genealogy website “Lost Indian Tribes Southeast.” Fifteen years later, Panther’s Lodge, as the site was called, became a publisher of books about American Indians. The Big Little Book of Native American Wit and Wisdom, compiled by Anna Kolouthon was one of the first produced, and it was followed by an audiobook version narrated by Robert B. Rees. Now comes a video podcast hosted by Pete Ferrand with highlights like “Being Indian Is,” by J.C. High Eagle, Chief Two White Feather’s Advice, “Remarks on Native American Religion” and the Native American Ten Commandments. Special video footage includes an 1895 Sioux Buffalo Dance performance shot by William K.L. Dickson and part of the Shungopavi Buffalo Dance on January 16, 2009, taped by Hopi student Kelly Kessay.
