Riassunto: When the Apache wars ended in the late nineteenth century, a harsh and harrowing time began for the Western Apache people. Living under the authority of nervous Indian agents, pitiless government-school officials, and menacing mounted police, they knew that resistance to American authority would be foolish. But some Apache families did resist in the most basic way they could: they resolved to endure. Although Apache history has inspired numerous works by non-Indian authors, Apache people themselves have been reluctant to comment at length on their own past. Eva Tulene Watt, born in 1913, now shares the story of her family from the time of the Apache wars to the modern era. Her narrative presents a view of history that differs fundamentally from conventional approaches, which have almost nothing to say about the daily lives of Apache men and women, their values and social practices, and the singular abilities that enabled them to survive.
In a voice that is spare, factual, and unflinchingly direct, Mrs. Watt reveals how the Western Apaches carried on in the face of poverty, hardship, and disease. Her interpretation of her people’s past is a diverse assemblage of recounted events, biographical sketches, and cultural descriptions that bring to life a vanished time and the men and women who lived it to the fullest. We share her and her family’s travels and troubles. We learn how the Apache people struggled daily to find work, shelter, food, health, laughter, solace, and everything else that people in any community seek.
Richly illustrated with more than 50 photographs, Don’t Let the Sun Step Over You is a rare and remarkable book that affords a view of the past that few have seen before—a wholly Apache view, unsettling yet uplifting, which weighs upon the mind and educates the heart.
About the Author: A renowned moccasin maker and storyteller, Eva Tulene Watt is cultural advisor to the Nohwike Bagowa, the White Mountain Apache tribe's cultural center, was a charter member of the tribe's cultural advisory board, and also served as a key advisor to the Western Apache Place Names Survey. A recipient of the Arizona Indian Living Treasure Award, she lives with her son's family near Hon-Dah on the Fort Apache Reservation in Arizona. Keith Basso, whom Eva Watt invited to record her narrative, is University Regents Professor of Anthropology at the University of New Mexico and a leading expert on Apache culture, language, and history. Among his books are Wisdom Sits in Places: Landscape and Language Among the Western Apache, winner of the Western States Book Award, the Victor Turner Prize, and the J. I. Staley Prize; Portraits of 'the Whiteman': Linguistic Play and Cultural Symbols among the Western Apache; and Western Apache Language and Culture.
