In Native Spirit and The Sun Dance Way,
James Trosper describes the relentless attacks
Indian people suffered upon their physical, cultural

the white man. He offers thoughtful reflections
upon the role that adherence to the ways of
their Grandfathers played in helping his people
maintain their identity into the 21st Century.
