I have a very limited supply of the paperback editions of my four book-length publications (below). If you will pay the postage ($7.75 USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope), I will be happy to mail you one of these books, signed or inscribed as you like. Please send me a message using the contact form in the right sidebar of this website, and be sure to include your email address. I will respond with payment instructions within 48 hours; if you don’t hear from me, check your spam/junk folder, since I will be replying from a private email account that might get blocked/filtered on your end.
Around the Sacred Fire:
Native Religious Activism in the Red Power Era
University of Illinois Press, 2008
One of the founders and leaders of the movement was Clifton Hill, an outspoken Mvskoke activist. Many other Creek Nation citizens attended the annual gatherings including Phillip Deere, an influential Mvskoke elder. The Conference’s “sacred fire” was patterned after those kindled at the ceremonial grounds maintained by Mvskoke people and their indigenous neighbors.
Includes the important essay “Who Can Sit at the Lord’s Table? The Experience of Indigenous Peoples” by Mvskoke writer Rosemary McCombs Maxey.
Includes several brief mentions of Mvskoke groups and individuals – along with other Oklahoma Indians – in order to illustrate broader patterns in American religious history.
Includes short stories by Mvskoke writers Alexander Posey, Durango Mendoza, and Joy Harjo.
And I still have a few copies of the hardback edition of my book Around the Sacred Fire: Native Religious Activism in the Red Power Era, originally published in 2003 by Palgrave Macmillan / St. Martin’s Press. Let me know if you would like a copy, signed or inscribed as you like, for the price of postage ($7.75).
