Natives and the growing number of people interested in Indians and Indian country alike will find this a fascinating look into the lives and accomplishments of people that Euro-centric history has purposely ignored and suppressed.

The Native resistance fighters in this Special Report can be found in every era, in every one of the many Native cultures and sovereign nations. You can read about some of the earliest warriors, such as Opechancanough (1554-1646), mentioned above, a feared warrior and eventual chief of the Powhatan Confederacy. This is actual history – not a Disney movie.
Or contemplate Chief Pontiac of the Ottawas, some 200 years later, who fought tirelessly against the British and colonial invasion of his home, even leading the attacks that destroyed eight British forts before accepting amnesty.
You’ll read about Chief Black Hawk’s precocious early qualification as a warrior, and Kintpuash’s ongoing resistance against the U.S. Army, including leading his people in an escape from the reservation and back to their lands.

Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, Geronimo, Tecumseh and other Heroes of Native Resistance: Feel Native pride
In a world awash with European-based history in books, movies and everyday news, this Special Report stands out for anyone wanting to know more about Native American heritage.
You can explore these inspiring stories that come from Colonial Virginia to early 19th-century Georgia to the Little Bighorn (or, as Natives know it, The Battle of the Greasy Grass). These heroes fought, led their people to safety, skillfully negotiated, and did what they could on reservations to ensure peace and prosperity when there was no place left to run.
Not all Native American heroes were men, of course. People of the 21st century, accustomed to the ‘dead-white male’ syndrome in Western historical thought, will be fascinated to read about Native women warriors who played critical roles in the history of their nations. First you’ll read accurate historical details about heroes such as Sitting Bull or Crazy Horse, who have been stereotyped in American history, and then you’ll also enjoy stories such as that of Lozen, a skilled warrior of the Chiricahua Apache, or Colestah, a medicine woman who fiercely defended her wounded husband during a battle with only a stone war club.
Wherever a woman warrior rode and fought, her story is worthy of inclusion in this Special Report—which highlights the power and influence of women in indigenous cultures even at a time when non-Native women had none.
And that’s not all, because Native history is about so much more than battle, no matter how many stereotypes and mascots depict natives historically as noble, warlike savages. In this free report, you can also delve into the rich stories of notable visionaries who rose up to lead their people back into traditional ways even as encroaching settlers and armies tried to erase their culture. These visionaries brought inspiration from their ancestors and Grandfathers through vision quests and natural gifts and abilities, giving their people hope during the endless struggles.
From Neolin, the Delaware Prophet, who advised his Lenape people to shun the weapons, metal and cloth they had adopted from the colonizers; to Smohalla, who could cure the dreadful diseases that Europeans had brought; to the great Tecumseh, who predicted an earthquake; this report helps you understand the role that medicine people and elders played in their tribes and during some of the greatest moments in Native American history.
Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, Geronimo, Tecumseh and Other Heroes of Native Resistance could only come from Indian Country Media Network.
