Fawcett (tribal historian, Mohegan Tribe in Connecticut) recounts the life story of Gladys Tantaquideon, a 100-year-old medicine woman and matriarch of the Mohegan nation. Written in the Mohegan oral tradition and based on Tantaquideon's autobiographical rendering, this book tells of her childhood learning traditional ceremonies and healing arts, her Ivy League education, and her career as an anthropologist and an employee of the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
