Author Guest Post by Andrew Joyce

32285027My name is Andrew Joyce and I write books for a living. I would like to thank Johanna for allowing me to be here today to promote my latest, Yellow Hair, which documents the injustices done to the Sioux Nation from their first treaty with the United States in 1805 through Wounded Knee in 1890. Every death, murder, battle, and outrage I write about actually took place. The historical figures that play a role in my fact-based tale of fiction were real people and I use their real names. Yellow Hair is an epic tale of adventure, family, love, and hate that spans most of the 19th century.

Now that the commercial is out of the way, we can get down to what I really came here to talk about: the Sioux people. The people we know as the Sioux were originally known as the Dakota, which means ally. The name Sioux came from the Chippewa and the French. The Chippewa called them Nadonessiou, which means adder, or enemy, and then the French shortened the name to Sioux.

Every culture has an origin story. We in the West have Adam and Eve. The Ancient Greeks had Gaia. According to the Norse people, Odin and Ymir founded the earth. If you will allow me, I’d like to tell you the creation story of the Dakota.

A Marine fighter pilot shares the story of his search for truth while serving his country.

Growing up in a secular family, Jason Ladd was apathetic when it came to the subject of God or religion. With his eye on a career as a Marine fighter pilot, he was able to (somewhat) comfortably avoid the subject altogether -until a simple question sent him on a journey to discover the real truth about life, God, and faith.
