Native Men of Courage, revised edition is the 2016 title in Native Trailblazer Series. This volume offers elementary readers 10 biographical sketches about Indigenous men who have contributed significantly to the betterment of First Nations, Native American, Inuit, and Metis communities. Each person selected by Mohawk author Vincent Schilling offers readers an insight to men of distinction living and working in Canada and the United States. This revised edition includes two new profiles: Oren Lyons, Faithkeeper of the Turtle Clan of the Onondaga and Seneca Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy, and Tony Belcourt, who has played a key role in establishing a national voice for Canada'a Métis and non-status Indians. Other men who are profiled include: Larry Merculieff (Aleut); Raymond Cross (Mandan/Hidatsa); Mark Bowman (Choctaw); Frank Abraham (Ojibwe); Golden Eagle Hotshots (Sycuan); Stanley Vollant (Innu); Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell (Cheyenne); and Chief Tom Porter (Mohawk). This is a valuable contribution to the literature about First Nations men from Canada and the United States suitable for elementary students at the intermediate level.
