Return of the Wild

Many tribal governments are embarking on ambitious ecological

restoration programs to protect endangered wildlife. We visit the Nez

program for sage-grouse, the Iowa Tribe’s eagle aviary, and the

Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs’ chinook salmon effort. Plus

Making Shelter: Native Architectural Traditions

Over eons, Native peoples throughout the Americas developed effective

yet often ingeniously simple housing structures to keep themselves

protected from the elements, as we see among peoples of the Great

Plains, the Arctic, woodlands and deserts in this historic survey. By

Greg McNamee. Photos by Edward S. Curtis, among others.

Native Architects: Building A New World

Today’s practicing Native architects are ranked among the top

professionals in the field as they strive to meld modern science and

engineering with traditional knowledge, as noted in the careers of

Douglas Cardinal (Blackfeet/Metis), Janet Carpio (Isleta Pueblo/Laguna

Pueblo), John Paul Jones (Cherokee/Choctaw), Dyron Murphy (Navajo),

Robert Outland (Choctaw) and Patrick Stewart (Nisga’a). By Patty

Talahongva (Hopi).

Traditional Native Dance, Past and Present

We delve into the roots of traditional dance practices across North

America and profile a handful of active dance troupes presenting

traditional dance: the Yellow Bird Indian Dancers, the Chinle Valley

Singers, the American Indian Dance Theater and the Le-La-La Dancers. By

Colleen M. Payton.
