Grief Gives Way: Return of the Eagle-Feather Headdress

This poet and editor’s latest work focuses on his own quest to trace the history of a Northern Plains tribal headdress and his ancestors' roles in the conflict between white cattle drivers and native people in the American West.  His collaboration with Native American writer Gemma Lockhart provides new insights and potential reconciliation as they seek the most suitable place of safekeeping for an artistic masterpiece.
