The following are books that I have published. You can find more information and order them online from Amazon.com.
In this first entry in the National Museum of the American Indian series My World: Young Native Americans Today, Naiche Woosah Tayac, a member of the Piscataway tribe, takes the reader through his day at school, traces the history of his tribe and ancestors, and describes his people’s ceremonies and customs. Produced in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution, Meet Naiche offers a rare glimpse into the modern culture and family life of an ancient tribe while celebrating Native American history and tradition.

Featuring a day in the life of a young Hopi girl living in Arizona, this is the second book in a series produced in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution. Meet Mindy: A Native Girl from the Southwest takes the reader on a journey into the rich history and contemporary culture of the Hopi tribe, as seen through the eyes of one of its members, 14-year-old Mindy. Mindy proudly describes her family and her village, talks about the traditional coming-of-age ceremony that prepares her for later marriage and motherhood, and much more. John Harrington’s photographs capture the vibrancy of a girl who lives successfully in two worlds.
Featuring the life of a young girl living in Juneau, Hoonah, and the surrounding area, this is the third book in a series produced in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution. Meet Lydia: A Native Girl from Southeast Alaska takes the reader along as Lydia travels to a cabin deep in the bush, a waterfall she visits often, family lands adjacent to a cannery, beachcombing, and with her during her school-day.
Principal photography for this book was completed in May and June of 2003, with a Fall 2004 publication date.
