Amid the grandeur of the remote Pacific Northwest stands Kingcome, a village so ancient that, according to Kwakiutl myth, it was founded by the two brothers left on earth after the great flood. The Native Americans who still live there call it Quee, a place of such incredible natural richness that hunting and fishing remain primary food sources. But the old culture of totems and potlatch is being replaces by a new culture of prefab housing and alcoholism. Kingcome's younger generation is disenchanted and alienated from its heritage. And now, coming upriver is a young vicar, Mark Brian, on a journey of discovery that can teach him—and us—about life, death, and the transforming power of love.

Around the Sacred Fire is a compelling cultural history of intertribal activism centered on the Indian Ecumenical Conference, an influential movement among native people in Canada and the U.S. during the Red Power era. Founded in 1969, the Conference began as an attempt at organizing grassroots spiritual leaders who were concerned about the conflict between tribal and Christian traditions throughout Indian country. By the mid-seventies thousands of people were gathering each summer in the foothills of the Rockies, where they participated in weeklong encampments promoting spiritual revitalization and religious self-determination. Most historical overviews of native affairs in the sixties and seventies emphasize the prominence of the American Indian Movement and the impact of highly publicized confrontations such as the Northwest Coast fish-ins, the Alcatraz occupation, and events at Wounded Knee. The Indian Ecumenical Conference played a central role in stimulating cultural revival among native people, partly because Conference leaders strategized for social change in ways that differed from the militant groups. Drawing on archival records, published accounts, oral histories, and field research, James Treat has written the first comprehensive study of this important but overlooked effort at postcolonial interreligious dialogue.

Susan Seddon Boulet (American, b. Brazil, 1941-1997) lived life in search of the magnificent. As a child growing up on a Brazilian farm, she developed an abiding affection for animals, making them her first artistic subjects and portraying them in colorful, lively sketches. From these simple roots, creating art became central to her life. Boulet developed a unique style, an inspired vision suffused with detail, texture, and color. Her artwork reflects her innermost journey, beginning with fairy tales and evolving into powerful archetypal figures that welled up from what Carl Jung once called "the deepest springs of life." In the decades since Boulet's death, her artwork has continued to move and inspire people all over the world. Boulet is also known for her finely detailed portraits within portraits-explorations of mysterious dreams, visions, and spiritual symbols. For these paintings she drew inspiration from folklore and myth as well as shamanic and Native American traditions. Working primarily with oil pastels and ink, Boulet brought into being a numinous dimension displayed in vivid, breathing detail. Her highly personal style offers glimpses of other worlds. Seen for the first time, her images can feel familiar, known at some profound level; they often resonate with those in search of a personal truth. Even as Boulet explored the darker aspects of the psyche in her work and began her long struggle with cancer, she retained the energy, honesty, and warmth that endeared her to so many. This retrospective by Michael Babcock recounts her artistic development and celebrates her extraordinary personal journey. It includes more than two hundred reproductions of her paintings, some never before published.
