Born in 1861 in New Mexico's Acoma Pueblo, Edward Proctor Hunt followed tribal traditions that had been unchanged for centuries; after attending government schools, however, he became a shopkeeper and a broker between the Native and white worlds, and his children followed a similar path. Chronicling Pueblo Indian life and Anglo/Indian relations over the past century and a half, Peter Nabokov explores how this entrepreneurial family capitalized on the nation's passion for Indian culture, and dramatizes how the Hunts—like immigrants throughout history—faced anguishing decisions over whether to stay put or strike out for economic independence, and experienced the passage from tradition to modernity.
