Honest Injun:
Hollywood, History, and the Great White Lie

From Buffalo Bill to Billy Jack, Cher to Sacheen Littlefeather, and F Troop to Elvis, the truth about Native Americans in the media gets heap big scalped.
Like the recent controversial books Nigger: The Strange Career of a Troublesome Word by Randall Kennedy and Cowboy: How Hollywood Invented the Wild West by Holly George-Warren, Honest Injun takes a hard look at how the entertainment media in the U.S. has viewed Native Americans since the 1900s.
Meticulously researched, generously illustrated, and powerfully written by a seasoned entertainment journalist, Honest Injun shatters the made-in-Hollywood legends and circles the wagons around the ignorant laws, attitudes, and culture with bracing courage and intelligence.



From Kokopellis to Electric Warriors:
The Native American Culture of Music (2002)

From the red earth of the reservations to the glitter of the Grammys, the heartfelt music of Native America is getting into the mainstream. In these pages are visions of some of the major Native American players, artists, musicians, activists, and singers as diverse as Bill Miller, Rita Coolidge, Joey Ramone, John Trudell, Hank Williams III, and Wayne Newton.
Native American music. It’s not just for powwows anymore.
