American history classes often do not include the histories of Native people. So today more and more Native authors are writing books to tell their own history such as Darren Parry. His book, "The Bear River Massacre: A Shoshone History," was just named "Book of the Year" by the history department at Brigham Young University. Parry is the former chairman of the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation.
