ASAIL Newsletter, N.S. Vol. 2, No. 2, Summer, 1978
Editor: Karl Kroeber, Columbia University
Bibliographer: LaVonne Ruoff, Univ. Illinois, Chicago

        We are swamped with essays, reviews, notes, announcements, bibliographical material. Even putting out four numbers this year won't catch us up with what we already have in hand. And in our opinion what we have published and will publish in the Newsletter is of remarkable quality. In order to keep publishing rapidly we must cut non-paying subscribers from our list. An annual subscription for individuals and libraries (does your library subscribe?) is $2.00).
        No copies of N.S. Vol. 1 remain. If we can obtain enough in voluntary contributions to cover costs, we will reissue Vol 1. lf you or your library is interested, contact the editor.

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTES

        This number treats books recently published, forthcoming, not widely known, out of print; new journals; a selection of articles published primarily in 1977 and 1977 dissertations. Where known both the full names and the tribal affiliations of authors are given. Articles are included when reprints have been made available. {17} Lack of a research staff precludes detailed searching. We would appreciate receiving copies and offprints of published works as well as announcements of dissertations, books, scholarly projects. Include author's full name, tribal affiliation, publication date, price, total pages in announcements of books. John Jacob, English, Northwestern, suggests that presses or authors send two pre-publication copies of individual works to the American Library Assoc., 50 East Huron St, Chicago IL 60611, since libraries pay attention to (even ordering from) ALA reviews.

Simon J. Ortiz. Going for the Rain. New York: Harper & Row, 1976. ii+ll2pp. $6.95HB, $2.95Pb (#7, Harper Native American Publishing Program).
        Going for the Rain is a compilation of poems written about, and during, trips across the U.S. Much of the subject matter is thus topical. Usually Ortiz goes to some trouble to work up the scenery of his poetic accounts, but happily he doesn't always do so, thus avoiding repetitions. The voice of the poet responds, first, to his own ancestry, second, to his literary ancestry. Great themes are cast into a new light through the poet's use of his mythology. For instance, Ortiz uses Coyote, Native American trickster, to narrate several poems. The mask of coyote may be alien enough to arouse many readers' curiosity, thus drawing them into the poems; to those who know tales of coyote, Ortiz's manipulations interest as personal variants on traditional tales. Either way, Ortiz succeeds.
{25}
        One feels of these poems that, while they were not `easy' to write, they were natural vehicles for the author's feelings, not forced attempts to fuse experience with artificial poetic form. Ortiz updates his ancestral tales through use of vernacular language. He makes a reader look a second time at sights the Western mind too easily forgets. His book is a muted travelogue, a quiet but original record of what happens in America, where the poet often seems at odds with the urban landscape he encounters, as in "Notes on the Steps of the San Diego Bus Depot":

                Across the street
                America is putting together
                another Federal building.

                I don't think the sky will fall today,
                but I need a few surprises badly.

We see Ortiz able to stand back, away from the action of the poem, letting the poem take over. His presence is almost always subliminal; he is at both the core and the periphery of his poems. The book should be treated as poetry, not merely Native American poetry, Ortiz surmounts categorization, though eighty percent of his subject-matter ties to his Indian-ness, and to his outraged sense of what has happened and continues to happen to Indians.

John Jacob,    Northwestern Univ.

(A subsequent review will take up the relation of Going for the Rain to basic elements in the Keres creation mythology.)

Stories of Traditional Navajo Time and Culture by 22 Navajo Men and Women, ed. Broderick H. Johnson (Tsaile, AZ: Navajo Commun. College Press, 1977), ill. Raymond Johnson & Hoke Denetsosie + 53 phots. xii + 355pp. $9.95 HB. Address: 325 East Southern Ave, Tempe AZ 85282.
        "My fellow people and friends. . ." begins one {26} of the autobiographical accounts in Stories of Traditional Navajo Life. Descheeney Nez Tracy, another informant, elaborates on why those particular words are used to address an audience. "I traditionally greet my audience with `My friends,' `My grandchildren,' . . . or whatever relates to brotherhood. Being friendly can prolong a person's life. . . we must learn to avoid unpleasantness. . . As parents we want to have happy homes so that our children can enjoy life and live comfortably." (p.158) This is precisely the message and tone maintained throughout this collection of oral histories.
        Each of the 22 informants is sharing his/her life story as an analogy to illustrate how a good life can be had if only one is industrious, respectful, and knowledgeable of both the Navajo and Anglo cultures and traditions. The informants are highly respected in their communities, known for wisdom (their average age in 1976 was 72), their knowledge of their Navajo heritage, and their genuine desire to preserve their knowledge.
        As the majority were born in the early l900s, the stories reflect the changes that have taken place on the Navajo reservation. We learn about the importance of the clan system, its historical significance, and how it operates. The informants tell of the Navajos' defeat by the U.S. Army, and their grandparents'and parents' incarceration at Fort Sumner. They speak of their traditional upbringing and how it prepared them to live prosperous and fulfilling lives. They bring to life the painful years of livestock reduction under John Collier's administration. But mostly they speak of the importance of education, traditional and institutional. Informants who received an education under the BIA consider themselves fortunate, despite their separation (sometimes forcibly) from family, occasionally landbase, and almost always their cultural heritage. The few who were deprived {27} of an education by their parents because they were needed at home expressed their regret. And all the informants emphasize the need for all Navajo students seriously to attend to their studies because through education a better life will be possible for all.
        The main theme of the collection is the need for parents to become more involved in the process of rearing their children. The need for discipline is stressed, as is the need for continuation of the Navajo language and heritage. The informants agree that the general deportment of the Navajo needs to improve; they tell of their parents' concern about how they grew up, and how their minds and bodies were trained so they could become able and successful individuals.
        Some of these accounts tend to be a little didactic, especially on how today's children should be more respectful and disciplined, but only because the informants hope to reach today's young people. These texts display a sincere desire to relate knowledge and experience so as to promote a better understanding of Navajo culture to Navajo youth, to provide them with a basis for enjoyable lives, and to share insights with non-Navajos so they may understand more of the Navajo perspective. The informants do not recount their life histories for personal gain, but to illustrate how traditional Navajo education was implemented. What was once only transmitted orally and revealed to only a few is now capable of reaching a wider audience. Stories of Traditional Navajo Life exemplifies the synthesizing spirit of the Navajo people.

Jamake Highwater. Ritual of the Wind (see p.18 above)
        This is a very personal, yet general book. Highwater directs his remarks to a non-Indian audience in a blending of poetic, scholarly, journalistic, and subjective points of view. Thus in the introduction:

When you ask where various ceremonies will be held, Indians change the subject. And when you happen upon a dance, you do not feel especially welcome. You are baffled. Is it possible that such highly intriguing events are not performed for audiences? And if the rituals are not public performances, then what are they? (8)

The book consists of four main parts: Introduction, The Initiation, The Ceremony, The Blessing. Within this framework Highwater generalizes about Indian culture in North America. This is a difficult task, and his method almost works. He has chosen to present a number of specific ceremonies from various tribes, with translated portions of texts, to demonstrate the Indian world-view may be exposed through examination of dance and ceremony. I confess I find it difficult to conceptualize a single, all-encompassing Indian world-view within the diversity of North American Indian groups. I feel Highwater is often skating on thin ice, near to a stereotypical presentation of an Indian world-view. Is there an Indian world-view, or many? This, to me, is an unresolved question. But Highwater thinks one can generalize one view. illustrations and photographs are of high quality, varied and valuable, and Asa Battle's drawings are at once artistic, informative, sensitive. Laymen as well as scholars can use the appendices, a calendar of events, and a discography of Indian music, and the selected bibliography is generally good. One might quibble: why are David McAllester, Bruno Nettle, and Charlotte Frisbie omitted from tne musical and ceremonial bibliography, while several of Densmore's lesser contributions are included? But the reader is given an adequate base for further reading.
{29}
        Specialists may quarrel with specifics in particular ceremonies, or with the author's selection. I was mildly disturbed to read that the "Big Cove band" of the Eastern Cherokee is a "band" and not a community (p.76). In general, though, the description of the Booger Dance is structurally adequate, and the same is true for other ceremonies considered. The main value of the book lies in the ability of Highwater to present a Gestalt. Coupling of ceremonial description and illustrations provides the general reader with a sensitive, varied introduction to a way of thinking and a way of life very different from those of white America. Whether the world-view presented is personal or a more general myth is not clear. But in either case, the book will give white readers an opportunity to consider implications of cultural differences.
