About the Author

Jon L. Gibson is a retired anthropology professor from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette with a lifelong research focus on the natives and culture of the Atchafalaya region. He is the author of The Ancient Mounds of Poverty Point: Place of Rings and coeditor of Signs of Power: The Rise of Cultural Complexity in the Southeast.


Based on a lifetime of anthropological research in the vast, exotic Atchafalaya swampland of southern Louisiana, Gibson spins a story about its ancient Chitimacha Indians. The cultural details are vivid, including a harrowing encounter with cannibals. How does one relate to people who want to have one for dinner, I mean really want to have one for dinner? Charles Hudson, author of The Packhorseman"
"Spirit Wind is not only an excellent fictional approach to Chitimacha tribal mythology, but a fascinating and extremely well-written book, capturing the essence of Chitimacha storytelling technique in an excellent and thorough manner. Julian Granberry, author of The Americas That Might Have Been: Native American Social Systems through Time"
