About the Author

Nancy McGown Minor is an independent historical researcher with a master's degree from Texas State University. She specializes in archival research regarding the history and culture of the Lipan Apaches and is the Tribal Historian of the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas. Ms. Minor is also the co-author (with William Chebahtah) of Chevato: The Story of the Apache Warrior who Captured Herman Lehmann (University of Nebraska Press, 2007). This work contains the oral history and historical context of the life of Lipan Apache shaman Chevato (1852-1931), one of the founders of the Native American Church. Other works include The Light Gray People: An Ethno-history of the Lipan Apaches of Texas and Northern Mexico (University Press, 2009).


The abundant use of archival sources and an intense focus on one group and how that group sought to direct their own destiny amidst a changing and challenging world are the strengths of the volume....Minor's book is an important one. * Southwestern Historical Quarterly *
