PHILIP CASSADORE. Magazine Cover signed: "Best Wishes/Philip", 24p, 8½x11. Complete "Indians Illustrated", September 1968 issue. Photograph of Cassadore by Al Abrams on cover. Brief biography of Cassadore, "Indian Singer-Lecturer", on Contents page. Article, "Philip Cassadore: Apache Singer and Lecturer", on pages 7-9. Accompanied by two newspaper articles, unsigned, from 1971 regarding Cassadore and his grandfather, an Apache medicine man. The late Philip Cassadore was an Apache medicine man and the spiritual leader of the San Carlos Apache tribe who passed down the traditions and history of his people through lectures and song. He recorded ten albums of native songs, including an album with his sister, Patsy Cassadore. Cassadore, whose Apache name was "Beshcone" ("Sharp Knife"), lectured on college campuses, traveling across the U.S. as well as to Europe, Latin America, China and Peru, and he hosted a weekly Apache language radio program for nearly twenty years. Cassadore also served as a consultant to the Smithsonian Institution and other research centers, and he traveled to Washington, D.C. to speak on behalf of his tribe. In 1972, he ran for President in an attempt to call attention to the economic plight of Native Americans. The son of Broken Arrow, a clan chieftain and medicine man, Cassadore was married to Leah Marcine Andrez, a nurse with the Indian Health Service. Their son, Edison, became a writing instructor at Tohono O'Oodham Community College (based in Sells, Arizona), and he was one of the few members of the tribe to earn his Ph.D. Minor smudge at two letters of first line. Lightly creased and soiled. Minor paper loss at upper right margin of front cover. Overall, fine condition.
