Biography

Paula Underwood (1932–2000) was an American author, who primarily wrote about Native Americans in the United States.

Career

Underwood wrote several award-winning books and contributed to numerous publications. A speaker, lecturer, and teacher, she founded and directed the Learning Way company, a developer of an educational program: The Past is Prologue. She is known for her "learning stories" and "The Learning Way."

Background

Underwood was born in Los Angeles, California to Perry Leonard Underwood, from Lincoln, Nebraska and Vida Lora (Webster) Underwood, from Springfield, Missouri. Paula Underwood was not a member of any Iroquois Nation or tribe; she was raised by her non-Native father in what she referred to as the “strong spirit path,” and said that he taught her “to revere and respect Iroquoian traditions.” She said that she and her father considered themselves a “Tribe of Two.” She claimed her paternal grandmother was Oneida. Her paternal grandmother was Sarah Mariah (Leonard) Underwood (1858–1939) born in Clarke County, Iowa.
