Yulu Ewis Brings ORAL HISTORY TO YOU. OPE Is Available for Order on Amazon NOW

Proud and happy to promote my friend Yulu Ewis' book which is available on AMAZON    Bring ORAL TRADITION that springs from her Miwok and Pomo ancestry.  Here are some excellent reviews.  Help my friend bring oral history to YOU

"Yulu Ewis powerfully recreates tribal myth from the ashes of colonial history; myth that simultaneously remakes the poet and colonial history itself." Dr. Greg Sarris, Graton Rancheria Endowed Chair in Creative Writing, Sonoma State University; author of Grand Avenue and Watermelon Nights

"Poems that should be read and reread---and very likely will be---of ever-vital Native presences of the Northern California mountain." Dr. Geary Hobson, Professor Emeritus, University of Oklahoma; executive Director, Native Writers Circle of the Americas

"In 'Ope (More), Yulu Ewis opens the world of oral tradition-the same, timeless, pre-Columbian world of our Indigenous ancestors that is still present, but unseen by most-to all of her readers. Grounded in the language and world views of her Miwok and Pomo ancestors, Ewis definitely gives us 'more' as it grapples with cultural perseverance, along with the 'sovereignty' and 'civil rights' the US has 'given' to her people in the aftermath of its genocidal and assimilative tactics that attempted to destroy them." Dr. Kimberly G. Wieser, Associate Professor, University of Oklahoma, author of Texas...to Get Horses and Back to the Blanket
