Description du Livre

"The only good Indian is a dead Indian" is historically linked to General Philip Sheridan in 1869. This vindictive curse has lingered in the consciousness of the American Indian for more than 100 years. It has been parodied and overused until it has lost its' meaning: the extermination of Native Americans as a "good" thing. There are undoubtedly a number of Native Americans passing as white because they are ashamed of their heritage. The Only Good Indian - PTSD: A Native American's Story of Survival is the story of Jeanne, who suffered from painful depression with persistent "orders" from her psyche to kill herself. Jeanne was unaware of her Native American heritage because her mother passed as white. Her story tells the agonizing reality of PTSD from the viewpoint of an American Indian. This heartfelt autobiography follows Jeanne as she attempts to alleviate her pain. She finally discovers what was inside of her crying to be addressed, and uncovered her Native American soul. She knew there was something she had to do - but it was never clear until late in life when she suffered a mini-stroke - or what she calls God's Shock Treatment. Ronnie Fellows is an 80-year-old great-grandmother living in Georgia. She is an elder of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians based in Wisconsin. "The experiences I relate in this autobiography have been to some degree experienced by any/all tribal members and indigenous peoples everywhere. Prejudice and discrimination have beset Native Americans since Columbus first set his foot on the 'new land'." Publisher's Website: http: //
