We are pleased to announce the publication of a book that presents a new chapter in contemporary UFO history. The author, Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, is an American Indian researcher and a professor emeritus at Montana State University. For more than 20 years, Clarke has been collecting stories from the indigenous people of the Americas and Oceania. Her new book, Encounters with Star People: Untold Stories of American Indians, focuses on the intimate narratives of contact between American Indians and the Star People who are often viewed as ancestors. Heretofore, much of the literature about American Indians and the Star People gave voice to medicine men or visionaries who often predicted warnings of an apocalypse from the Star People. In contrast, this book relates the experiences of ordinary American Indian people from all walks of life and across generations. These individuals have never told their stories to other researchers, nor were they interested in fame or drawing attention to themselves. As an American Indian herself, Clarke had access to and the trust of the people she interviewed. Perhaps the most unique feature of these accounts is that the experiencers view the Star People differently than mainstream society, and therefore the UFO and alien encounters they recount are not terrifying in most cases, but ones of wonder, communication, and hope. Read this book and you will never look at the UFO phenomenon in the same way again.
