From AudioFile:

Essays by well-known Native American authors are eloquently read by Joy Harjo (Creek Nation) and Simon Ortiz (Acoma Pueblo). The essays provide unique perspectives on the diversity of Native American traditions and identities, with common threads such as spirituality, community, survival, renewal and the impact of the dominant culture. The thirteen selections seem designed for oral presentation, and both readers, accomplished authors and public speakers, do the job well. Harjo's excellent enunciation and pacing powerfully portray each essay. Ortiz reads persuasively in an expressive personal style. A Circle of Nations offers valuable, thought-provoking insight into contemporary Native American life and its history. H.B.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

From Library Journal:

Many audiobooks containing Native American stories deal with the folkways and history of the people (e.g., Wisdomkeepers: Meetings with Native American Spiritual Elders , Audio Reviews, LJ 9/1/93). This collection provides insight into contemporary life through essays by some of the most respected Native American writers. Joy Harjo and Simon Ortiz read their own as well as nine other essays from various contributors. A common thread running through the pieces is the writers' attempts to come to terms with their identities as Native Americans in relation to their communities and the Anglo culture. Lorenzo Baca provides musical accompaniment between essays. Highly recommended for academic and public libraries with strong Native American and literature collections.
