Dancing for Peace

Now Available!

A beautifully illustrated, well-researched book, Dancing for Peace, by the Omaha Tribal Historical Research Project–a history of tribal government and treaty violations by the U.S. to today’s new tribal Constitution. 

The Omaha Tribal Historical Research Project (OTHRP), the designated cultural authority of the Omaha tribe, is conducting a fund-raiser to support their many efforts to educate tribal members and the larger society, to advance the tribe’s interests, and to preserve its cultural heritage.

Anyone wishing to donate at least $10 (half the proceeds to OTHRP, and by OTHRP’s wishes, half to WISR as decades-long collaborating and supporting organization) will receive access to an eBook (4 pdf files), Dancing for Peace (2021).

Access to all four pdf’s may be obtained by donating to WISR and OTHRP, at least $10.00 to the PayPal merchant: mail@wisr.edu –please check the option that the money is for “friends and family” since this the purchase of the pdf’s is a donation to two tax-exempt organizations (WISR and OTHRP who are sharing the donations equally, at the request of OTHRP).

Once you’ve made the donation, please request access to Dancing for Peace from either Margery Cofffey (margerycoffey@yahoo.com ) or John Bilorusky (johnb@wisr.edu) and you will receive a link to access and download the 4 pdf files.

Dancing for Peace takes a look at Traditional Tribal government documented by Dr. Francis La Flesche, Esq., in The Omaha Tribe (1911). It traces both the Treaty era from the Papal Bull in 1493 to the ending of that period in 1872 along with a discussion of the time in which the Treaties occurred and a critical look at their contents.

In 1934 the Congressional passage of the Indian Organization Act (IRA) imposed upon Indian Country, including the Omaha, a cookie-cutter “tribal” constitution that proved inadequate and alien to ancestral governance. Today, most Indigenous Nations have adopted new Constitutions, but not yet the Omaha. OTHRP has compiled a new Omaha Constitution based upon the 2007 Constitution of Ecuador, which reflects the United Nations Declaration of Indigenous Rights. Both this constitution and the UN Declaration are included along with a Traditional Tale comic on Coyote and greed.

This book is copyrighted by OTHRP, and since the pdf’s are eBooks that you have received as a “thank you” for your donation. Therefore, the links accessing the pdf’s and the pdf’s themselves are not to be shared with anyone outside your family or immediate circle of closest friends. That is, you should only share them with others the same way you would loan a paperback book to one of your immediate friends or family members. Since the access to the pdf’s can be obtained for a very modest $10 donation ($10 donation for access to all pdf’s) and since this is an important fund-raiser and source of publicity for OTHRP and WISR, we encourage you to suggest to others, such as coworkers and community/professional colleagues, that they make a $10 donation to obtain access.

Thank you for your support of OTHRP and WISR, Dennis Hastings, Founder/Director of OTHRP, Margery Coffey, Assistant Director of OTHRP, richard chilton, Project Facilitator, OTHRP, and John Bilorusky, President and Faculty Member, WISR.

Dennis Hastings and Margery Coffey earned their MA and PhD degrees at WISR.
