He has written two peer reviewed books: Seeing The World With Aboriginal Eyes: A Four-Directional Perspective on Human and Non-human Values, Cultures and Relationships on Turtle Island published by Aboriginal Issues Press and The Rotinonshonni: A Traditional Iroquoian History Through the Eyes of Teharonhia:wako and Sawiskera published by Syracuse University Press based on his 1998 dissertation work while in the Traditional Knowledge Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies. He has also recently written peer reviewed chapters in The Handbook of Conflict Analysis and Resolution, Routledge Press; Philosophy and Aboriginal Rights: Critical Dialogues, Oxford University Press; Critical Issues in Peace and Conflict Studies, Lexington Press; The Nature of Empires and The Empire of Nature, Wilfred Laurier Press and co-authored an article featured in the book From Truth to Reconciliation: for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and was an advisor for two of the TRC events. He has done presentations in Guyana, Ireland, Senegal, Mexico, Israel, Palestine, Thailand, Australia and more recently Myanmar where he took a short trip to Northern Myanmar with noted Mennonite philanthropist Art Defehr. Rice’s book The Rotinonshonni: A Traditional Iroquoian History Through the Eyes of Teharonhia:wako and Sawiskera was the culmination of 20 years in the making. It was a choice book of libraries of America. His most recent publication is a history book written for educators called First Encounters: Indigenous Peoples and Newcomers from the East to Central Canada published by Kendall Hunt Press and has several chapters concerning treaties. Most recently, he was a special week long guest of Southern Methodist University and then The University of Colorado where he lectured on everything from Indigenous oral traditions to addictions and spiritual recovery. Dr. Rice is an educator on Indigenous and Newcomer Relations with knowledge about treaties.
