Panther's Lodge is an indie hybrid publisher of fiction and nonfiction in the areas of American Indian interest, ethnic and cultural studies and history. It began as the academic webpage of Donald Panther-Yates in 1998. New authors are sought in Native American and other areas where writers may have difficulty with a traditionally published project. Teresa A. Panther-Yates is President and Editorial Director. Our website is www.pantherslodge.com. We also have a YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/donpantheryates.
