Sorry about that.

It's published, but not in book format yet. I've only got the three whole books published thus far, although Goodreads may have some of the anthologies I've appeared in. A great deal of my work is only visible online or scattered across magazines.

Focus on intertribal activities. That can help a lot. Look for common ground in cultural practices between tribes. There is plenty of it. Yes, the tribes are each distinct but if you pile them all together they are a lot more like each other than like the Europeans. Short list: storytelling, drums, dancing, reverence of plants and animals as guides, prevalence of 4 as a sacred number, and let's not forget Plains Indian Sign which was an auxiliary trade language that touched all four coasts. Identify common goals and work toward them -- frex, keeping oil pipelines off the land and making sure everyone has water.
