Description - Reuben Snake by Jay C. Fikes

Activist, educator, political and spiritual leader, Reuben Snake will be remembered as an important force in his own Winnebego community, the American Indian Movement (AIM), and the Native American Church at a period when Indian America was beset with challenges from all sides. His life story is at once a moving personal memoir and a retelling of the most significant events and conditions affecting Native Americans in modern times. He experienced what many young Indians have suffered -- schools that punished children for speaking their native language, unemployment resulting from discrimination, and alcohol abuse. Snake overcame these obstacles to become one of the most effective and inspirational leaders of his time. This remarkable autobiography was transmitted to Jay Fikes in tape-recorded interviews during the final month of Snake's life.
