Book #1, "Hawk Dancer"
Engage in North country Ventures from
the siren story teller, Joshua Seidl, (known to masterfully weave fact and fantasy.)
Metis, Euro-Americans and Native American interaction in a contemporary historical setting, 1917-2010

"Stories, well driven, and so realistic. Down the earth great reading." --Sgt. T. Douglas, chronologist
"The journey towards racial and cultural equality is three steps forward, two steps back. Then, another three steps forward.
At least that's how it felt in the 1950's through the 70's. But, at least we made progress. "We found that a rich inheritance of
Indian humor stayed us, encouraged us, and by the Grace of God, saw us through to this day."
- - Words from Mandaamin, a major character in the novels.
"We did not create the web of life. What we do to it, we do to others and ourselves and for the next seven generations." -- Anishinbeg proverb
This modern saga of three cultures is based on more than five years of research.
The Birch Clump Village Reader Series Collections of short stories, art and some poetry by Joshua Seidl.
Browne proof reads and edits these books. I am grateful for the extensive research he contributed for these works.
A few documented sources influencing these books
This right of the human person to religious freedom is to be recognized in the constitutional law whereby society is governed and thus it is to become
a civil right. [Vatican II, Dignitatis Humanae, 1965.] American Indian Termination and Relocation acts
lasted from 1948 - 1971. The American Indian Freedom of Religion law passed on August 11, 1978. The lives of those in these books are on par with how
many in real life influenced these social, legislative and Ecclecial changes. "All over the world people worship God and read His Word in their
own language, and color the great signs and symbols of religion with touches of their own traditions. Why should you be any different from them in this
regard, why should you not be allowed happiness of being with God and each other in Aboriginal Fashion?" - - Pope John Paul II
The Defense of the Rights of Aborigines, Nov. 29, 1986
