In this issue Raylene Hinz-Penner, former arts editor of Mennonite Life, explores the dynamic of writing a life from her conversations with Lawrence Hart, Cheyenne Peace Chief and Mennonite pastor. The project involves a meeting of different Indian and Anglo cultural styles. Penner’s biographical project is timely in view of a conference on Mennonite-Indian history and relations planned for the spring of 2006 in Clinton, Oklahoma. Penner and Hart are both on the planning committee for that conference, which will be sponsored by the Mennonite Church USA Historical Committee.
