Ushkana Press, The Center's nonprofit publishing arm, is pleased to announce that its newest book, This War is For A Whole Life: The Culture of Resistance Among Southern California Indians, 1850-1966, is arriving soon. 

This landmark work by Richard A. Hanks, PhD, tells the mostly untold stories of Southern California's own Native American heroes and follows the paths of leadership as American Indian people waged battle in tumultuous times to secure their Southern California homelands, natural resources, and respect. Historical photos, and the voices of Southern California Native American Elders (including several who have since passed away), help tell this history that's been missing from the history books. 

Stay tuned for information on how to get your copy.
