Description: Written or cowritten by American Indians to reflect the Indian point of view, this series covers the cultural history of the diverse tribes that comprise the Indian Nations of North America. Each book opens with a folk tale, legend, or creation story that sets the scene, each title includes information on the origins of the tribe, its way of life, key historical events, religions or spiritual life and traditions, family life, contemporary life, and the future envisioned for a specific Indian nation.

For at least 1,000 years before Europeans arrived, the Pomo Indians lived in villages in the moderate coastal climate of northern California. They hunted game, fished, and gathered wild foods. Among their crafts, basketry was paramount, and Promo baskets are admired around the world today. Spaniards, Mexicans, and then Americans brought diseases, bad government, land confiscation, and near slavery that reduced the Pomo to scattered groups that controlled almost no land. Recent government policy has reversed many harmful practices, and now Pomo-owned gaming casinos have brought funds that greatly help the Pomo community and its members.
