Writing Native history has traditionally conformed to traditional methodological approaches. This essay argues that inherent differences in the ways Native and non-Native cultures view the past directly impact the production of histories focused on Native populations. With this point in mind, the second half of this essay presents a methodology entitled "Guided History," which not only allows for community input in the production of local histories but also actively promotes this participation.
