About the author

As a well-respected Living Historian, Kris Swanson spends her time working with museums, historic sites and history-based events focused on educating the public regarding American Indians and Western history. As one of the only women living historians, her interpretation from a woman's perspective is insightful and balanced. Kris holds BAs in History and Communication and an MA Communication. She has dedicated her life to learning about Plains Indians during the 19th century through many different avenues.

Kris’ goal is to represent accurately the lifestyle Plains Indians lived during the 1800s through displays, presentations and hands on learning. For more than 24 years, she has been making and using historically accurate items using authentic designs, materials and craftsmanship. During these years, she has lived in tipis, participated in many primitive Indian camps, and has experienced first-hand how it was to live back then. Kris’ products are used both in her own living history activities and demonstrations, and by clients as both working items and artwork.

Her work has been featured in films, paintings by western artists and may be purchased in art galleries. Her learning videos on YouTube have helped numerous would-be crafters with traditional methods of craftsmanship. Through her work, Kris strives to share everything she has learned through her studies and experience living on the ground. Her goal is to assist in keeping the record straight regarding the lives of the Plains Indians, minimizing the many misconceptions, inaccuracies and stereotypes that exist today.

Update #8 - Portraits of Women in the American Fur Trade update! Aug. 2, 2019

Hau Kolapis! 


Here's where we are in the process of publishing Portraits of Women in the American Fur Trade. Because of all of you, the pre-orders went fantastically, and I ended up with 13 publishers interested in publishing it! You can see the list on the pre-order page (link below). 

The next step in the process was to write a proposal for them all, and it must be submitted with a sample of the book. Thus, I hired a professional editor to polish the 40,000 word sample required. The deadline for editing to be finished is next week, August 7th! 

Once we submit, I will receive an offer from each publisher and then I'll determine which one is giving me the best support and the best deal. I'll let you know who it ends up being! 

Final publication date will be completely determined by the publisher and the production process undergone to get there. But the process is moving along, and I'm optimistic it will go smoothly. 

Thanks again for your belief in my project! I appreciate you very much. 

Love and light,

Kris
