Leon K. Reval’s “‘Haff’ Breed” was displayed at the 2023 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, held at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, last April 22-23, 2023.

The self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet exhibited the book as part of their goal to share the stories of independent and self-published authors with the world. The company also showcased hundreds of titles at the largest book festival in the country.

“‘Haff’ Breed” is a memoir by Leon K. Reval, sharing insights into the life of a tribal leader questioned for his Indian blood. He takes readers back to his origin in an Indian reservation while having the desire to leave to place for a better life. He later embraces his Jicarilla Apache heritage as he realizes the importance of self-acceptance.

Being a half-bred Native American man, Reval shares his struggles with acceptance in his tribe. He found himself at the tribal council in 2002 to honor his family name and lead with integrity and transparency to help create revenue for the benefit of his tribal community. Despite his intention, he was still met with disdain as he was labeled “haff breed,” which made him feel inferior.

The author tells his life story to inspire and share his self-discovery. He finds his identity and takes root in it, which made him prouder of where came from. He realized that the place he swore to leave was a place he would swear to love and serve for his roots in the Jicarilla Apache tribe.

Readers can get a copy of “‘Haff’ Breed” by Leon K. Reval on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
