Grace Moon also wrote Lost Indian Magic. Grace Moon's husband, Carl Moon viewed himself as a visual historian contributing to both the scientific and artistic communities. "About the only thing we have thus far overlooked taking from the Indian is his right to perform his religious rites with their accompanying dances in his own way." -Carl Moon
