Medicine trail : the life and lessons of Gladys Tantaquidgeon by Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Blending autobiography and history with traditional knowledge and ways of life, Medicine Trail presents a collage of events in Gladys Tantaquidgeon's life. We see her childhood spent learning Mohegan ceremonies and healing methods at the hands of her tribal grandmothers, and her Ivy League education and career in the white-male-dominated field of anthropology. We also witness her travels to other Indian communities, acting as both an ambassador of her own tribe and an employee of the federal government's Bureau of Indian affairs. Finally we see Tantaquidgeon's return to her beloved Mohegan Hill, where she cofounded America's oldest Indian-run museum, carrying on her life's commitment to good medicine and the cultural continuance and renewal of all Indian nations." "Written in the Mohegan oral tradition, this book offers a unique insider's understanding of Mohegan and other Native American cultures while discussing the major policies and trends that have affected people throughout Indian Country in the twentieth century. A significant departure from traditional anthropological "as told to" American Indian autobiography, Medicine Trail represents a major contribution to anthropology, history, theology, women's studies, and Native American studies."--Jacket

Oracles : a novel by Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this futuristic novel, the wilderness is disappearing due to human incursion and urbanization. Small pockets of nature remain and are used for tourist visits and historical interpretations. Television broadcasts pictures, sounds, and smells, and space travel is commonplace. The Yantuck Indians must find a way to preserve the environment that survives on their eastern United States reservation and yet participate in a global economy. This dilemma creates factions within the tribe: those who believe in a traditional way of life and those who seek to enhance tribal finances by marketing and selling “Indian-ness. ”Ashneon Quay, a young medicine-woman-in-training, is herself caught between two worlds. Growing up with elderly family members, both medicine people, she attends a local college where she studies anthropology. Quay struggles to find a balance between the traditional and the new and to identify a path that is right for her." -- Publisher website

"The novel is a mystery novel with decided attention to Indigineous peoples in east coast America. Some focus on the Pequot peoples. Here is the synopsis: Snowy is a stylish eighteen year old interior design prodigy who was raised by NYC strippers after her mom's murder. She thinks she's escaped the cultish archaic women in her Mistick shoreline family that call themselves Gray Goddesses by moving to The City. But her grandmother's funeral draws her home, and Snowy uncovers clues to her mom's cold case murder that lead her to discover dark secrets about the Grays and her own Native American heritage. In the end, Snowy discovers her mom was executed by the Grays for child murder, something that just happened again in Mistick, even though the entire Gray organization was created to prevent it after kids died in the Pequot Massacre of 1637. When the Gray's Ombudswoman is removed for allowing a child killing on her watch, Snowy replaces her."--
