HOWEVER, while you will read about language groupings, migration patterns, wars, cultural impacts and other cold facts, you will find these intellectual efforts written with the same degree of insight given to any extinct species in history.
"Looking Back" is a series which began in 1993 in order to share
the passions, customs and lifestyles of the First Peoples so that readers
may understand what it was like to live in the early days. The indigenous
peoples of the world are not extinct. They are living, breathing pages
from history who struggle to maintain their homelands and to preserve their
traditions, customs, heritage and ceremonies in the face of ever increasing
encroachment from the "civilized" in society. It is to the living, in honor
of the past, that "Looking Back" is dedicated.
