104 thought on “How the World Moves: The Odyssey of an American Indian Family

  1. Hunt never had the permission of the pueblo to impart any Acoma sacred information to anyone, much less to the Bureau of Ethnology for publication The pueblo has always considered this publication by the Bureau of Ethnology to be a fundamental breach of trust by the United States It is a glaring example of the unfortunate and ugly incidents of the late 19th century involving archaeologists and anthropologists, personified by the likes of Frank Cushing at Zuni.The Origin Myth of the Pueblo of Aco [...]


  2. This is the best history book I have ever read You really get a true picture of the how this family endured as culture shifts occurred in the American Southwest What is special about this narration is that you get to know the how and why behind the events You actually learn how people reacted and felt in what feels like real time The author paints the picture of the homes, clothing, thoughts, events in such a way that the reader becomes part of the story I loved so much I shared with friends and [...]


  3. Whew This one took me a while to make it through I did like it, although it was a challenge to finish It was well written it was meticulously researched I learned a LOT from it, but I think it was heavier on the accompanying mythology, social history, etc than it was the story of a family I learned a lot of THINGS but feel like I m only passing acquainted with the Hunts themselves.


  4. Carefully researched, painstakingly pieced together into a fascinating portrait, this book is a must read for anyone who is interested in the Southwest and in particular New Mexico and its history Edward Hunt, born Day Break to the isolated, ancient Acoma people in 1861, is the central figure around which Nabokov writes, but there is so much history and detail provided for context that it is easy to be sidetracked by these many interesting facts Day Break, like many children of his time, was sen [...]


  5. I received an complimentary ARC through the generosity of Viking Books and First Reads Incredible book, one of the best History books that I have ever had the pleasure of reading The author who is a professor of American Indian studies at UCLA spent over twenty years in research of this book and it shows Wonderfully written history of an American family that details the journey of a Acoma Pueblo family from the birth of the patriarch , Edward Proctor Hunt in 1861 to the death of his last survivi [...]


  6. Oh, man This is no easy read Even the most dedicated history buff might feel a bit bogged down with all the details and facts in this 500 page book with many pages of references And I was put off that there was almost no mention of the women in this long family line, but Nabokov addressed that in his Post Script While I m disappointed that we have all these chapters about the men in the family, I suppose there s no helping it if your historian is no longer around to talk to you I received a copy [...]


  7. I won this book via first reads Its a really interesting story about American Indians and provides a perspective I hadn t seen before I m glad I read it I found parts of it shocking I was expecting just a basic historical account, but it provided a first person view of what it was like for American Indians I would definitely recommend it




  8. Fantastic book about an Acoma Indian family, the Hunts, told in a very positive way, although much that happened was not good It begins in 1861 with Edward Dad Hunt s birth, and describes his life in the Acoma Pueblo, and how he was sent to school at a young age in Albuquerque It was difficult for him because he was changed when he returned to the pueblo I am amazed by how adaptive and innovative he was throughout his life, and what a wonderful family he raised There is no other story like it
