This Day in North American Indian History
From the book cover:
"For every calendar day, an in-depth look at the important events in the history of North America’s native peoples.

From the dedication of the Maya ballcourt at Chichen Itza in A.D. 864 to modern political activism and government legislation affecting native peoples, here is virtually every significant event in North American Indian history. It also includes fascinating information on hundreds of battles and skirmishes between Indians and whites, as well as countless treaties made and broken. An extensive appendix includes information about Indian tribal names and calendars. It’s all here—Indian chiefs, wars, massacres, treaties, reservations, modern constitutions and much, much more.

This Day in North American Indian History is a one-of-a-kind, vastly entertaining and informative book covering over 5000 years of North American Indian history, culture, and lore. Wide-ranging, it covers over 4,000 important events involving the native peoples of North America in a unique day-by-day format.

The thousands of entries in This Day in North American Indian History weave a compelling and comprehensive mosaic of North American Indian history spanning more than five millennia-every entry an exciting opening into the fascinating but little- known history of American Indians.

Native American History For Dummies
. Click on the cover to order a copy or to get more info.
I wrote six of the twenty-four chapters in this book. I am credited with being the technical editor. Book Description:
Native American History For Dummies introduces readers to the thousand-year-plus history of the first inhabitants of North America and explains their influence on the European settlement of the continent. Covering the history and customs of the scores of tribes that once populated the land, this friendly guide features vivid studies of the lives of such icons as Pocahontas, Sitting Bull, and Sacagawea; discusses warfare and famous battles, offering new perspectives from both battle lines; and includes new archaeological and forensic evidence, as well as oral histories that show events from the perspective of these indigenous peoples. The authors worked in concert with Native American authorities, institutions, and historical experts to provide a wide range of insight and information.

Treaties With American Indians I wrote an article and several appendix items for this book. Click on the cover to order a copy or to get more info.
From a review on Amazon.com: *Starred Review* In the 93 years from 1778 until 1871, there were more than 400 treaties negotiated by Indian agents and government officials. These often included more than one tribe and covered a range of issues including ceded lands, payments and annuities, reservations, hunting and fishing rights, provisions for education, sovereignty issues, and more. Although the subject of treaties between American Indians and the U.S. government is vast and complex, editor Fixico and more than 150 contributors have crafted a comprehensive tool that will soon become essential for anyone interested in the topic. Volume 1 contains 22 essays dealing with federal policy, historical periods, regional treaty making, and other topics. The essays vary from 7 to 12 pages, and each contains a bibliography with references and items for further reading. Volume 2 provides short, chronologically arranged entries describing specific terms of both U.S. and Canadian treaties with Indians as well as A–Z entries for significant treaty sites. All entries have see also references and a short bibliography. This volume also contains the text of 40 treaties. The third volume offers a detailed historical chronology with 1- to 2-page entries, followed by biographical profiles of historical and contemporary individuals associated with treaties and Native rights. The third section of this volume contains entries that explain treaty-related issues, such as Assimilation, Doctrine of discovery, and the Trust doctrine. Volumes 1 and 2 have numerous black-and-white illustrations but no maps. A resource section with lists of “Alternate Tribal Names and Spellings,” “Tribal Name Meanings,” Treaties by Tribe,” and “Common Treaty Names” and a bibliography and comprehensive index are repeated in each volume. Both students and librarians will find the arrangement somewhat cumbersome, but it does provide the user with various lenses through which to view this complicated topic, and it makes particular aspects of the topic more manageable. This impressive set has a place in any academic library that supports a Native American studies or American history curriculum. It also would be useful in public libraries where patrons are interested in the subject. It is the most comprehensive source of information on Canadian-Indian treaties and U.S.-Indian treaties. Also available as an e-book.

Ten More Logic Fibs Word Association Memory Method

The basic way to memorize a list of things is to associate the item to be memorized with the appropriate key word in some nonsensical or graphic way. As it turns out, these kinds of nonsensical images are really fairly easy to remember. Or, at least, they are easier to remember that just trying to memorize the list itself. This method has been around for a long time. I learned it in the 1970s.
Using 10 letters which correspond to the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, you will learn how to memorize lists of items.

You use numbers so you can number each item in your list. Once you learn the system, you will be able to remember which item is which number, or which number is which item. For example, if you wanted to memorize the American Presidents in order, this method will allow you to know that Andrew Jackson is the 7th President, or the 13th President is Millard Fillmore.

The phrase "TeN MoRe LoGiC FiBs" is how you will remember which letter corresponds to which number. The phrase could also be "TeN MoRe LoJiK FiBS." (The "J" can also be a "G", and the "K" can also be a "C".

1 = T
2 = N
3 = M
4 = R
5 = L
6 = J
7 = K
8 = F
9 = B
0 = S

For each of these letters, you will be using a key word to help you memorize the item in your list. Yeah, I know. It still sounds complicated. Just hang in there, it will begin to make sense soon.

The key word for T is Tea or Tie.
The key word for N is Noah (as in 2 by 2) or kNee.
The key word for M is May or Ma.
The key word for R is Ray or Rye.
The key word for L is Law or eeL.
The key word for J is Jaw or Gee.
The key word for K is Key or Cow.
The key word for F is Fee.
The key word for B is Bay or Bee.
And those are the keywords for the numbers 1 through 9.
10 is made up of two letters: T (for 1) and then S (for 0). The key word for TS is ToeS or ToyS.

So, to memorize a list of 10 words, you would use the key words of Tea, Noah, May, Ray, Law, Jaw, Key, Fee, Bay and ToeS.

I know, I know, it is still complicated. Just keep hanging in there. It will make sense in just a few more minutes. OK, here is a sample list of things to memorize:
1. horse
2. flag
3. watch
4. pencil
5. tape
6 .pill
7. DVD
8. computer
9. antenna
10. house

Remember, the basic way to memorize a list of things is to associate the item to be memorized with the appropriate key word in some nonsensical or graphic way. The first word in your list is the word "horse". The key word for 1 is Tea. Mentally, see a horse drinking a cup of tea. And, so one down the list of items you want to memorize. Obviously, there will be few times in life when you would actually see a horse drinking a cup of tea. It is this nonsensical association which makes it stick in your mind.

For "flag" see Noah waving a flag. For "watch" visualize a watch with a date of May, or maybe your Ma with a watch. For "pencil" see a ray of light on a pencil. For "tape" see law enforcement tape. For "pill" see a pill stuck in your jaw, or your jaw hurts so you have to take a pill. For "DVD" picture a key opening a DVD container. For "computer" see a price tag (the fee) on a computer. For "antenna" see a large antenna in the middle of a bay. And finally, for "house" imagine a house full of toes.

This should be starting to make some sense, I hope. If someone asks what the 4th thing in your list is, you remember that 4 is represented by the keyword Ray. Oh yeah, you associated Ray with a ray of light shining on a pencil.

Below I will list all of the recommended keywords for 1 to 100. Of course, you can make up your own keywords. For the system to work, they do need to follow the outline.
Now, go out and try this for yourself. With a little practice, you should be able to do this. As you first start practicing, you might use a small piece of paper with the 1-10 key words on it. If you have problems remembering the ten letters, just remember the name of this page:
