"From generation to generation, American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) handed down invaluable cultural knowledge and rich traditions in art, folk tales, literature, religion, language and American history, which continue to thrive in AI/AN communities and across our country today. AI/ANs also have served in the U.S. Armed Forces with honor and distinction, defending the security of our Nation with their lives. Historically, AI/ANs have the highest record of service per capita compared to other ethnic groups."   US Department of Veteran’s Affairs:  https://www.diversity.va.gov/calendar/aihm.aspx

Life Stories -- Biographies & Autobiographies

History repeats itself only in that, from afar, we all seem to lead exactly the same life. We are all born; we all spend time here on earth; we all die. But up close, we have each walked down our own separate paths. We have stood at our own lonely crossroads. We have touched the lives of others at crucial points, for better or for worse. In the end, each of us has lived a unique life story, astounding and complicated, a story that could never be repeated.  ~ Edward Bloor  (American novelist and playwright, best known for Tangerine and London Calling.
