Edited by Denise E. Bates
In We Will Always Be Here, contemporary tribal leaders, educators, and activists speak about their own experiences fighting for Indian identity, self-determination, cultural survival, and community development. This valuable collection describes the lives and priorities of today’s southern Native peoples in their own words.

Kenneth W. Porter
Edited by Alcione M. Amos and Thomas P. Senter

This two-volume work studies the assimilation and eventual destruction of the Timucuan societies of interior Spanish Florida near St. Augustine, shedding new light on the nature and function of La Florida’s entire mission system.
Volume I traces the effects of European exploration and colonization in the late 1500s through the Timucuan rebellion of 1654.
Volume II explores how colonization changed Timucuan settlements into a chain of way-stations between St. Augustine and the Apalachee province, describes rampant demographic collapse in the missions, and looks to English raids and the end of the mission era.
