The amazing stores of ten influential contemporary native heroes spark both pride and awe. This revised edition includes two new profiles: Oren Lyons, Faithkeeper of the Turtle Clan of the Onodaga and Seneca Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy, and Tony Belcourt, who has played a key role in establishing a national voice for Canada's Indigenous people. This inspiring collection chronicles outstanding leaders in all walks of the Native community. Their stories are tales of courage, determination, and honesty.
