We believe that stories of the West from both the American Indian and Settlers point of view are important. Whether passed by oral or written tradition, both paths are what has brought us here today. We hope that as we build this area of information for use at home, in the classroom or for personal reading, that your life will be enriched and that you will share the heritage of the West with generations to come.
