I love to write about the Native Americans. I'm about half Apache and half Mexican. I'm a Sunday school teacher at This Generation Church (Pentecostal). I love to read about Native Americans. My dream is to meet Eddie Spears and Michael Spears who are Native Actors from South Dakota. I have Cerebral Palsy, but I am blessed that I can walk, run, and talk. And I love to write!

Books by Whitney Shaw

  • An old Native American Indian man is telling a story to his grandson. His grandson does not know his Grandfather is very sick, and slowly dying. Before he leaves this world he has to know if his grandson walks the good red road, and that he will keep the stories alive and tell them to the next generation.
  • A flash from the past where a young woman falls in love with a Native warrior.
  • A family struggling to get by in the west
  • Dedicated to my best friend, Meggan Welch, it talks about what has happened to us over the years at Greenwood School here in Midland TX.
  • White Hawk is getting worse, and he knows there is something wrong now, before he didn’t think anything of it, and didn’t tell anybody he was seeing something that nobody else could see. The shadow figure is coming in clearly now, and making words, it destroys a friendship, and nearly destroys himself and his family until White Hawk got help in time before it worsened.
  • One boy struggling to walk the red road won't listen to anybody not even his little brother who walks the red road. He is angry all the time, stealing, and wanting to hurt people, not trusting anybody that's not Indian, Grandfather pulls him on the POW WOW trail.

  • Tradition past down from generation to generation of Boxing.
  • A family separated long ago, then reunites after many years. A mother leaving her husband and child and taking her daughter to a better place in the city instead of out west. She was looking for something better but could not take her Native son, for she feared he would be killed. The mother had to keep her daughter's identity a secret because she knew if the people knew what her daughter was, then they would look down on her or possibly kill her. But her daughter looked more white than Indian, but the mother did not want to risk it. The Father was the Native who married a white woman and they had son and daughter. Now the son and daughter are grown and the daughter has three girls now, the girl's father Kicking Horse was killed long ago on the farm, some men ambushed him in the barn and killed him, now the girls brother is learning the warrior way.

  • A Boy Struggling into today's society.
  • White Hawk is coming home from the hospital, from 10 years now, he has been gone. He finally gets to come home. He can stay home as long as he keeps up with his medication. He does get better, his attitude changes, he even looks better. He get bad as he gets old, his brothers have to put him in a nursing home.
  • For some people "Pentecostals" is a new word to some. A century again it was rarely part of the average North American's vocabulary. However, it's used has risen steadily, most often in reference to the fastest growing segment of the Christian faith.
    Although it has become much more common in recent years, it is not a new word. It goes back to an ancient Jewish feast celebrated the first fruits of the harvest. The Hebrew was primarily an agrarian society and a successful harvest was critical to their well-being.
    They celebrated God's blessing and provision for them with a feast, which fell on the fiftieth day after another important feast day, the Passover. But for Christians, Pentecost takes on a different meaning. It marks the birthday of the Church.
    The bible also records the first outbreak or outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the earliest believers on the Day of Pentecost.
    The Book of Acts records the experiences and teachings of this new movement. Because many of the key players of the Acts church were eyewitnesses to the life and teachings of Jesus, it follows that they would have the clearest insight into the way in which to worship Jesus.
    As a result the church in Acts should function as a model to follow when attempting to build a church. However over the centuries the institutional church lost sight of the Acts pattern. Just over a hundred years ago.

  • Chen Chen's Adventures in English was inspired by the author's experiences while teaching English online to students in China. At first, Chen Chen is a bit confused at the idea of an 'online teacher' who lives in America. He is also a little unsure how he will like it. Once he meets Teacher Kim 'on his computer', he discovers the joy of online learning and can't wait to take more English classes.
    Watching the students grow in their speaking confidence and in their online experience has been a true joy for "Teacher Kim" and she wanted to share a small piece of that experience with the world through a children's book. Thank you for reading and sharing!

  • I kind of messed up my story book. It's probably better for older kids and adults. It could use a good do over for young children. This book is about the reasons it's a good thing to believe in God. I, personally think it's good to believe in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit (3 personalities in 1 God). I'm not saying I know for certain God exists but I have hope & faith that God is real. You see God means good and the Devil means evil.
