    The Red Road to Wellbriety is a book of healing that is culture-specific to Native Americans, but it may be used by all people. The book includes 12 chapters of cultural information about healing from alcoholism and addictions, including "how-to" information about working the 12 Steps in a Native way. The book argues that it is vital to refocus the efforts of Native nations beyond replicating settler models of territory, jurisdiction, and race.

This A-Z reference contains biographical entries on Native American women, past and present, from many different walks of life. Written by more than 70 contributors, most of whom are leading American Indian historians, the entries examine the complex and diverse roles of Native American women in contemporary and traditional cultures.
