Native American author, Kadashan’s nonfiction book, The Law of Nature and Nature’s God (67,000 words) is a collection of essays he designed particularly for the Juneau Empire, the capital city of Alaska’s newspaper; his column was called Kadashan’s Corner. He wrote his column for 6 years and served 12 years as the elected tribal president of the Yakutat Tlingit Tribe. In this book he writes about the U.S. and Alaska tribal governments
The premise of Kadashan’s essays are focused on the Natural Law. He discusses how the Founding Fathers based the U.S. Constitution of the United States on the law of nature and the laws of God. He also tells about how the Native American knew, understood and lived the Natural Law. In the essay Native American Influence he informs readers about how the Founding Fathers used the concepts of the Iroquois nation to form how the federal government was structured. Find out how the Indian Nation was pondered by the Founders to be the 14th colony and why it didn’t happen. The book is divided into four parts: Native American Influence, the Natural Law, features about the Alaska Native Brotherhood, and reclaiming our power as true blooded Americans.
In his capacity as a tribal president, Kadashan actively participated in self- governance meetings and conferences throughout the United State, including Washington D.C., and was able to rub elbows with prominent tribal leaders, and people in the governmental agencies. Kadashan used his experience and knowledge as a tribal leader to pen his thoughts about tribal governments and their relationship with the federal government. He writes about how the Native American leaders progressed through promoting their own initiatives to advance more self-governance for themselves.
Kadashan has strong opinions about the political arena in America, and many of his essays talk about why America is struggling politically, economically and socially, and what needs to be done to get back on track. He proves in his work, such as his essay called Where Does Goodness Come From that our country’s dilemmas are spiritual and morale ones. In his essays, Socialism and The Effects of Socialism in America his purpose in these narratives is to bring to our remembrance why our country is being lead toward the road to socialism.
Kadashan is retired commercial fisherman and his tribal government responsibilities. He lives in Yakutat, Alaska where he now spends most of his time writing.
