NAFPS: The Book-Let me know what you think

(1/2) > >>

I finally have time enough to get started on a book about what we do here, one that's badly needed. I mean an encyclopedic guide to all the frauds out there, one which will be aimed at the widest possible audience, in layman and not academic language, an unambiguous and blunt collection of all the Native objections to the frauds and all the harm they've done.

This will take me at least a year to write, but I plan to submit a proposal to publishers sooner than that, as soon as my first book (my dissertation) gets published so I'll be able to present myself to the publishing houses as an already published author. And my diss hopefully will be out this summer, or fall at the latest.

Frankly I owe quite a lot ot all of you for all your support and all the research so many of you have contributed to NAFPS over the years. I won't forget that, and I will give credit to you in the Acknowledgements.

Let me know what you think of my outline and what you think should be added, changed, etc.

Looks good to me. Just make sure you have all the documentation in order because some of those people will be mad as all get out.;)


It looks real good, clear, logical, and nice flow from one section to the next.

I was aware that Forrest Carter was a fraud in the fact that he was not Indian and was a racist but I was not aware that he propurted to be a medicine man also. I will look through the archives.

At powwows there is the Duck and Dive dance for men. Practice that one Al :) when Harley Reagan reads the book. LOL


You're right Joseph, my mistake. Carter never claimed to be a medicine man. I'll reword the chapter title from "posing as..."  to "Teaching Native Ways".

Some new chapters and appendices I'm adding:

20. Europeans’ Role in Nuage Exploitation
21. Right Ways to Learn About Natives: Good Sources

Appendix: Nuage-Speak to Plain English Dictionary
Appendix: Native Elders and Activists Proclamations Against Nuage and Pseudo-Shamans
