Ernie Bulow
Ernie Bulow is a noted author of magazine articles and books on Native American and Native American fiction topics. Probably his most well known work is, Navajo Taboos which is, “…an insider’s look at a body of folk beliefs shared by many Navajos, illuminating their cultural priorities.” Published in New Mexico magazine, The Santa Fean, Cowboys and Indians, Indian Trader, Gallup Journey magazine and many others, Bulow creates and re-tells the history of the Four Corners region, especially as concerns the Native American perspective.

Our thanks are due his interest in the subject and prolific writing. We hope this glossary one day becomes a book in its own right.
