Native American Reading List

Dr. Paul Robinson’s recent lecture on Native American sites now under investigation in Rhode Island drew a crowd of over 100 people. For those who would like to read further on the topic, Dr. Robinson strongly recommends the following two books:

Pocohontas: Medicine Woman, Spy, Entrepreneur, Diplomat, by Paula Gunn Allen, Harper Collins, NY, 2004.

Medicine Trail: The Life and Lessons of Gladys Tantaquidgeon, by Melissa Fawcett, The University of Arizona Press, Tucson, 2000.

Additional books and articles are listed on the RI Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission’s website, here.
