The June-July 2017 magazine, featuring a stunning cover photograph by Matika Wilbur, touches upon a wide variety of destinations and topics in a follow-up to the sell-out April-May 2017 debut issue, including:
Lighting the Sacred Fire—The lighting of the sacred fire at Standing Rock had immense significance for water protectors everywhere, an event where council fires of the Great Sioux nation, Sundance families and Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe came together to bring life to a ceremonial fire and send back all destructive forces. In this account by West Coast Editor Valerie Taliman, we learn first-hand of the people, prayers, horses, runners and medicine brought to create an eternal, shining moment during the fight against DAPL.
On the Move in Indian Country—A celebration of spectacular destinations and reminders of the way the world ought to be, from the waters of Shishalh, the wonders of Antelope canyon, the timelessness of Taos, Pueblo and so much more.
Tree of Lives—Birch bark is the original renewable resource, and its artistic and utilitarian uses have no limit. An exploration of a truly remarkable tree.
Revolutionary Allies—The nation-states of the Haudenosaunee have practiced international diplomacy for centuries. In a truly revolutionary moment, the Oneida Nation cast its lot with rebellious Americans and became the first allies of the fledgling United States. A look back at that dramatic story and its retelling in the new Museum of the American Revolution.
Where the Buffalo Call Home—Take a tour of the bucolic grasslands of Fort Belknap with experienced guide Ray Gone as he tracks bison to Snake Butte.
Winging It in Cuba—Renowned reporter Jenni Monet reflects on her experiences as a Native woman on assignment in Cuba. With the Trump administration threatening to roll-back Obama-era release of travel bans and sanctions, her account could not be more timely.
Telling Our Own Story—Read about Native-run museums that bring the history and culture of today’s native nations to life with cutting-edge design and inspiration.
Winter Count—Do not miss the second installment of Marty Two Bulls Sr.’s graphic novel treatment of traditional Lakota teachings, only in the June-July 2017 issue.
Golf Indian Country—Inspired by stunning landscapes and traditions of harmony with varying environments, Indian country can boast of some of finest golf courses in the world, supported by sophisticated resorts. As this comprehensive guide to courses proves, golf is a thriving economic resource and major key to economic diversification for Native nations and a point of pride even for those who have never picked up a club.
