What People are Saying About This

assistant chief of the Delaware Tribe - Michael Pace

The stories contained in these pages have many things to tell, the pride of a people, their personal histories, their determination to remain who they were and are as a people. . . . Sometimes we as individuals take our heritage for granted and do not learn the lessons of history. The study of our heritage can truly tell us why we are who we are today.

The Herald Times

The interviews come to life alongside ample color photographs of tribal customs, traditions and regular life.
