    Most histories of the Cherokee nation focus on its encounters with Europeans, its conflicts with the U.S. government, and its expulsion from its lands during the Trail of Tears. This work, however, traces the origins of the Cherokee people to the third century B.C.E. and follows their migrations through the Americas to their homeland in the lower Appalachian Mountains.

    With a combination of reverence and humor, Panther-Yates takes us on a tour of the Four Corners' world-renowned - and lesser known - ancient sites. Originally published in the Santa Fe Sun-News, these columns testify to New Mexico's undeniable power and mystery. In addition to the usual Native American dances, kiva mysteries and petroglyphs, the author introduces us to the offbeat spiritualities of the Muslim-like Penitentes of Abiquiu, Chimayo's santeros and a teaching coven of witches in Taos.

    What if the history of America's largest Indian nation is actually a polite modern fiction, one invented by "anthropologists and other friends"? In this sweeping revisionist study of the Cherokee Indians, a scholar trained in classical philology and the new science of genetics discloses the inside story of his tribe. The narrative starts in the third century BCE and concludes with the Cherokees' removal to Indian Territory in the 19th century, when all standard histories just begin.

    On the edge of the Isleta Indian Reservation in the foothills of New Mexico lies the Decalogue Stone, a giant boulder inscribed with the Ten Commandments in Phoenician Hebrew characters. The Indians, Spanish and Americans knew of its existence, and the nearby Crypto-Jewish community of Los Quelites venerated it, building a secret altar that the Spanish Inquisition smashed and destroyed.

    As the 20th century was ending and the millennium approached, a new ethnic category was invented in the South. The Melungeons were born thrashing and squawling into the American consciousness. They were a tri-racial clan hidden away in the hills and hollers of Lower Appalachia with a genetic predisposition to six fingers and Mediterranean diseases and an unsavory reputation for moonshining, counterfeiting and secret cults.

    Son pocos los momentos de nuestras vidas en los que nos encontramos con un texto electrizante. Nos da esa sensación de que "¡esto era lo que me estaba perdiendo!". En el mundo de los nativos norteamericanos, donde la comunicación oral ocupa el lugar de la palabra escrita, esa revelación suele ocurrir cuando escuchamos por primera vez - o comprendemos por primera vez– la historia del origen, la naturaleza y el carácter de nuestra gente.

    Non possediamo nulla di 'più autentico' di "Red Man's Origin". "Red Man's Origin" è semplicemente un articolo in lingua inglese dal anno 1896, tradotto ora per la prima volta in Italiano dalla artista veronese Francesca Bortolaso. E' un miracolo che sopravviva. Riproduce le parole Cherokee di George Sahkiyah (Soggy) Sanders così tradotte in lingua inglese da William Eubanks.
