Indian Nations of Wisconsin by
Publication Date: 2013-06-30
From origin stories to contemporary struggles over treaty rights and sovereignty issues, Indian Nations of Wisconsin explores Wisconsin's rich Native tradition. This unique volume--based on the historical perspectives of the state's Native peoples--includes compact tribal histories of the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, Oneida, Menominee, Mohican, Ho-Chunk, and Brothertown Indians. Author Patty Loew focuses on oral tradition--stories, songs, the recorded words of Indian treaty negotiators, and interviews--along with other untapped Native sources, such as tribal newspapers, to present a distinctly different view of history.

The first graphic anthology of Native American trickster tales, Trickster brings together Native American folklore and the world of comics. In Trickster more than twenty Native American tales are cleverly adapted into comic form. Each story is written by a different Native American storyteller who worked closely with a selected illustrator, a combination that gives each tale a unique and powerful voice and look. Ranging from serious and dramatic to funny and sometimes downright fiendish, these tales bring tricksters back into popular culture in a very vivid form.
