Apache, Navaho, and Spaniard by Jack D Forbes ( Book )
28 editions published between 1960 and 1994 in English and held by 1,700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Based on extensive research in Spain, Mexico, Texas, New Mexico, and California, Apache, Navaho, and Spaniard tells of the Spanish advance in the seventeenth century into northern Mexico and the Southwest, and of the American Indian response. Focusing on the Apache, Navaho, and neighboring nations, Jack Forbes reveals how long-standing, mutually beneficial relationships existing between the indigenous communities were upset by Spanish exploitation and slave-raiding, causing rebellions and widespread armed resistance that blunted the growth of the Spanish Empire."--BOOK JACKET

Only approved Indians stories by Jack D Forbes ( )
4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In these short stories, Jack D. Forbes captures the remarkable breadth and variety of American Indian life. Drawing on his skills as scholar and native activist, and, above all, as artist, Forbes enlarges our sense of how American Indians experience themselves and the world around them. Though all the main characters are of Indian descent, each is a unique combination of tribal origin, social status, age, and life-style - from native elder and college professor to lesbian barmaid and Chicano adolescent. Nevertheless the U.S. government (and perhaps white society as a whole) narrows the definition of "Indian." In the title story, for example, two basketball teams begin fighting when one accuses the other of lacking BIA status - government recognition. When tournament officials disqualify the team that lacks "official" Indian players, the "approved" team celebrates its victory. Forbes's characters want to be unique, but they must struggle for this right, and they must endure pain. Forbes shows how such quests can have personal and political motives and can meet with success or failure and how those who search for individual identity must reckon with the identity of their group. Thus, in retelling the story of the Seminole War, Injun Joe casts the Indians, not the whites, as victors. He cannot rewrite history, but by recreating it he can come to terms with a painful legacy. Imagination is equally important to other characters: even when they cannot achieve change, they can envision it. Forbes's stories open our eyes to the injustices of this world and provide transcendent visions of the world as it might be
The American discovery of Europe by Jack D Forbes ( Book )
13 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is investigates the voyages of Americas Native peoples to the European continent before Columbuss 1492 arrival in the 2New World.3 The product of over twenty years of exhaustive research in libraries throughout Europe and the United States, Jack D. Forbes employs a vast number of primary and secondary sources to paint a clear picture of the diverse and complex societies that comprised the Americas before 1492 and reveals the surprising Native American involvements in maritime trade and exploration. Starting with an encounter by Columbus himself with mysterious people who had apparently been carried across the Atlantic on favorable currents, Forbes proceeds to a detailed discussion of ocean currents and then to exploring the seagoing expertise of early Americans in the Caribbean, on the coasts of Greenland, and beyond. He also discusses theories of ancient migrations, the evidence for human origins in the Americas, and other early visitors coming from Europe to America, including the Norse. The book closes with a discussion of Native travelers to Europe after 1493, when they came mostly as slaves. The provocative, extensively documented, and heartfelt conclusions of The American Discovery of Europe present an open challenge to received historical wisdom. This book will be of lasting importance to Native people and redefine the way future scholarship views American history. - Publisher

Columbus and other cannibals : the wétiko disease of exploitation, imperialism, and terrorism by Jack D Forbes ( Book )
5 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Celebrated American Indian thinker Jack D. Forbes's Columbus and Other Cannibals was one of the founding texts of the anticivilization movement when it was first published in 1978. His history of terrorism, genocide, and ecocide told from a Native American point of view has inspired America's most influential activists for decades. Frighteningly, his radical critique of the modern "civilized" lifestyle is more relevant now than ever before. Identifying the Western compulsion to consume the earth as a sickness, Forbes writes: "Brutality knows no boundaries. Greed knows no limits. Perversion knows no borders. . . . These characteristics all push towards an extreme, always moving forward once the initial infection sets in. . . . This is the disease of the consuming of other creatures' lives and possessions. I call it cannibalism." This updated edition includes a new chapter by the author
