A forgotten Haudenosaunee social song beams into the cosmos like a homing beacon for interstellar visitors. A computer learns to feel sadness and grief from the history of atrocities committed against First Nations. A young Native man discovers the secret to time travel in ancient petroglyphs. Drawing inspiration from science fiction legends like Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov and Ray Bradbury, Drew Hayden Taylor frames classic science-fiction tropes in an Aboriginal perspective. The nine stories in this collection span all traditional topics of science fiction--from peaceful aliens to hostile invaders; from space travel to time travel; from government conspiracies to connections across generations. Yet Taylor's First Nations perspective draws fresh parallels, likening the cultural implications of alien contact to those of the arrival of Europeans in the Americas, or highlighting the impossibility of remaining a "good Native" in such an unnatural situation as a space mission. Infused with Native stories and variously mysterious, magical and humorous, Take Us to Your Chief is the perfect mesh of nostalgically 1950s-esque science fiction with modern First Nations discourse.

"Why the hell are you here?" Captain Ty Hamilton knows the woman hates him, especially since he'd tried to sabotage her military career.

Worse, she's been assigned to his unit. In five years, he's changed enough to feel ashamed of how he'd behaved. He wishes he could apologize, but Rachel's steely demeanor holds him at bay.

In Fictions of Land and Flesh Mark Rifkin explores the impasses that arise in seeking to connect Black and Indigenous movements, turning to speculative fiction to understand those difficulties and envision productive ways of addressing them. Against efforts to subsume varied forms of resistance into a single framework in the name of solidarity, Rifkin argues that Black and Indigenous political struggles are oriented in distinct ways, following their own lines of development and contestation. Rifkin suggests how movement between the two can be approached as something of a speculative leap in which the terms and dynamics of one are disoriented in the encounter with the other. Futurist fiction provides a compelling site for exploring such disjunctions. Through analyses of works by Octavia Butler, Walter Mosley, Nalo Hopkinson, Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel, and others, the book illustrates how ideas about fungibility, fugitivity, carcerality, marronage, sovereignty, placemaking, and governance shape the ways Black and Indigenous intellectuals narrate the past, present, and future. In turning to speculative fiction, Rifkin illustrates how speculation as a process provides conceptual and ethical resources for recognizing difference while engaging across it.

Plays One Adaugo Giddy Festival the Dawn of Full Moon Daring Destiny and Withered Thrust

The book, Plays One: Adaugo, Daring Destiny, Giddy Festival, The Dawn of Full Moon and Withered Thrust, is a compilation of plays by an African female Playwright, Osita Catherine Ezenwanebe Ph. D, an Associate Professor of dramatic Arts, University of Lagos Nigeria, a Visiting Professor and Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence, Winston-Salem State University, North Carolina, USA. It is aimed at making the plays available to her foreign audience who learnt of the plays during her scholarly activities as a Senior Fulbright Visiting Professor in United States of America. The plays are African Total Theatre, a functional and multidimensional view of theatre employing mime, songs, dances, chants, rituals, dialogue, etc. to drive home the message. The plays cover her though about the symbiotic relationship between drama and society and capture the social upheavals in Africa and modern world in general. Her perspective is humanist with a special concern for women and youth. Withered Thrust (2007) captures the pervasiveness of corruption; a social epidemic in which the oppressed employ anarchic ways of survival and social crusaders are infested with the same contagion as those they avowedly oppose, making the future look very bleak. Giddy Festival (2009) extends the theme of social rot and moral decay by focusing on the moral bankruptcy of the ruling class and its consequent atrophy of spirit: the politicians are giddy in merriment, full of empty rhetoric, egotistic, morally perverse, ideologically bankrupt and administratively incompetent; the suffering masses adopt anarchic indifference as a shield, and the law is made to look as an ass, resulting in a high disregard of the dignity of the human person. The drum beats, heralding the joyous moment of the power bloc; simultaneously, disjointed bones are fall-offs from the drum beat of their merriment. What a giddy festival! The Dawn of Full Moon (2009) brings a light of hope in the state of woman in many societies of the world where they still labor under the yoke of oppression. The play celebrates the sanctity of womanhood by dramatizing the dark days of a helpless, less privileged teenage girl and her victorious triumph when she blossoms like the dazzling brightness of full moon; strong, forceful and irresistible. It is a play deliberately meant to instill hope and confidence in women and youths. The Dawn of Full Moon also recreates the revolutionary love necessary for sustaining communal ties and gender complementarity. 2. In Adaugo (2011) the playwright deconstructs the suppressive oppression of women embedded in the rigidity of traditional social roles of male breadwinning and female home keeping in modern world and presents it as a major source of crisis in gender relation. By making the female protagonist, Adaugo, excel in both roles at a time her husband could not perform his due to circumstances beyond his control, the playwright celebrates the strength of women and calls for a change in the conception of masculinity in the face of modern experiences. In all, the play upholds the complementarity of the sexes which the playwright sees as imperative for traditional family and communal life. 3. Daring Destiny is a play that advocates Spartan courage and tenacity of purpose as the surest means of achieving a desirable destiny. It dramatizes the fate of the youth in a state where years of misrule has given way to anarchy. Mindless politicians and vicious capitalists cripple the people to penury and turn the youth into expendable cannon folders thereby setting up frightening destiny as their future. The youth are urged to dare such destiny and never give in to despair.

History of the Zulu War and Its Origin

First published in 1880, just a year after the titular conflict took place, this account by Frances Colenso (1849-87) of the 1879 war between British settlers and the Zulu population in South Africa is remarkable in its defence of the Zulu people, a very unusual view for a British writer at this time. Colenso was the daughter of controversial bible scholar John William Colenso, the first Anglican bishop of Natal. This book was intended to support her father's criticism of British policy, but while she credits her father's influence and opinions in shaping her book, Colenso is careful to state that the work is her own. Beginning with the causes of the conflict, which she identifies as an unjust and barbaric British invasion, Colenso describes the Zulu war chronologically to its conclusion. The military details of the war were provided by Lieutenant-Colonel Edward Durnford, a close friend of Colenso's.

the Real Scriptures of God

Inside the covers of this book you will find the Real Scriptures of the Christian churches. Many church leaders know that other Christian churches hold to these books but they are only willing to state what they have been brain-washed to believe, that is about the other inferior books: "It isn t in the canon" (of scripture) formed of course by the early Catholic Church at various stages and Councils from the fourth century A.D. therefore no one has the right to change what is in the canon of scripture and the Catholic Church changed it in their councils not in agreement of other Christians but to hide their offence at the words of God. They would not even imagine that different churches have different scriptures and assume that the correct canon of scripture must be the one first declared by the Catholic Church and its priests but other priests must be considered demented or apostate, but they are not affected by the changes they made to the canon of Scripture over many centuries. They will not consider the canons of Orthodox Churches or others because they vary in different regions of the world. So is European Christianity based in the Vatican City right about all its holy scriptures while everyone else s church scriptures are false scriptures? Ethiopia it seems got most books of scripture right even with their translation into an ancient language!

The good thing is, He provides the ideal model for you to follow on your way to reaping monetary rewards and gaining even more of your greatest asset on this earth: time. Carolyn Castleberry leads women through the process of creating, considering, and investing. Creating involves planning for your new life—you’ll learn to take responsibility and identify a mission statement. Considering means you’ll evaluate your investment options and trust the Holy Spirit. By the time you’re ready to invest, you’ll create a realistic budget, understand the credit game, and create an action plan for conquering debt. This book is your ticket to a new life grounded in financial freedom! A Proven Plan for Financial Success Meet your problem: • Today’s volatile job market is about to take you hostage (or already has). • You suddenly have huge financial responsibilities you never had before. • Retirement looms, begging you for a plan. • Thinking about, dealing with, or strategizing anything “money” bores you, freaks you out, or makes you feel stupid. “My own financial journey began the day I realized that I didn’t know anything about money. Never mind that I had a business degree and hosted a national radio show for women. ” —Carolyn Castleberry “A must-read for anyone who desires to find significance in life.” -Kelly Wright, National network correspondent “God has always had His love and favor on women, and when we understand our role from God’s perspective, we become liberated to fulfill our purpose.” -Anne Beiler, Founder of Auntie Anne’s, Inc. “God never said for you to be either passive or in the dark about money. Read this and get busy. You will be glad you did.” -Dr. Henry Cloud, Bestselling author of the Gold Medallion Award-winning Boundaries Story Behind the Book “The day I realized I didn’t know anything about money—even though I have a business degree and experience hosting a national business radio show for women—was the day I held my baby girl in my arms for the first time. I did not have a choice about whether to work or stay at home; we simply didn’t have enough money. After applying this financial model, I was able to walk away from a job in television news that I had held for fourteen years. God means it when He offers us abundant life, here and eternally. This book reveals a realistic example for today’s women who long to be free and have meaningful, prosperous lives.” —Carolyn Castleberry
