Description - Art and Eskimo Power by Lael Morgan

At Howard Rock's birth, a shaman predicted that he would become a great man. Born in 1911 in a sod igloo in Point Hope, an ancient Eskimo village, Rock became an accomplished artist and crusading newspaper editor who helped to defend his people from a controversial Atomic Energy Commission proposal to use an atomic blast to excavate a harbor near the Native village where he grew up. "Art and Eskimo Power" chronicles the life of this influential artist, editor, and founder of the "Tundra Times" - under whose leadership the newspaper helped to organize Alaska's Native people to press their aboriginal land claims before Congress, which ultimately led to their being awarded over $1 billion and 40 million acres.
