About the Author:
A member of the Modoc Tribe of Oklahoma, Cheewa James was born on the Klamath Reservation in Oregon and raised in Taos, New Mexico.
Cheewa, in the tradition of the Picuris Pueblo of northern New Mexico, is the eagle's call. Chee-wa. Chee-wa.
Cheewa James was so named by her great-great aunt Jennie Clinton, who died in 1950 at well over 100 years of age, the last survivor of the Modoc War of 1872-73. In the Modoc tongue, Chee-wa means "beginning of a basket" and speaks of the orderly and methodical progression of basket construction.
Cheewa embodies the medicine of both tongues. The basket of her being is held aloft to catch the myriad voices of Native Americans as they speak with the eagle's tongue of their experiences on the earth walk.
Cheewa James has served as a ranger-interpreter with the National Park Service, serving at the Lava Beds National Monument, California, site of the Modoc War of 1872-73. She appeared in the Discovery Channel's series "How the West Was Lost" in their special on the Modocs.
A former reporter and anchorwoman, Cheewa is the recipient of seven television United Press International Awards in the fields of documentaries and news reporting. She has won both the Oregon Television Golden Mike Award and the National Golden Mike Award, for outstanding programming in the interest of youth with a television documentary, "Incest: The Darker Side of Life."
An accomplished writer and publisher with nearly 150 articles in print, Cheewa's work has appeared in Smithsonian, Chicago Tribune, Portland Oregonian and other publications. She is a sought-after motivational speaker and expert in the field of communication, working with businesses and organizations to improve communication networks and to enhance client contact. She speaks across the United States and Canada. Cheewa's professional speaking applies the age-old wisdom of the Native American to help meet the challenges of the 21st Century. Her presentations center on the power of communication to build leadership and enhance business and personal relationships.
