Greg Sarris

Greg Sarris wears many hats: award-winnning author, screenwriter, scholar, professor, and tribal chief of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria. His latest book, “How a Mountain Was Made,” is a collection of stories inspired by traditional Coast Miwok and Southern Pomo creation tales; it celebrates the lore surrounding Sonoma Mountain. Timeless in wisdom and beauty, these fables are highly relevant to our times as they explore leadership, landscape, community, and responsibility to self and other. The Los Angeles Review of Books wrote, “Stunning…. Neither an arid anthropological text nor another pseudo-Indian as-told-to fabrication. Instead, Sarris has breathed new life into these ancient Northern California tales and legends.”
