"'One Voice Rising' is a memoir by a Ute healer, historian, and elder as told to Anglo writer, Linda Sillitoe. Clifford Duncan (1933-2014) was a tribal official and medicine man, a museum director, a trained lay archaeologist, an artist, a U.S. army veteran, and a leader in the Native American Church. In this text Duncan covers personal and tribal history during a crucial period in the tribe's development. His discussions with Sillitoe offer a unique look at individual and societal issues, including the Native American Church, powwows and tribal celebrations, and interactions with the larger world. George Janecek's intimate photographs of Clifford Duncan and his world expand the impact of Duncan's words."
