A Gift to the People: A Collection of Writings by Ghost Dancerby Lynda M. Means
A collection of stories covering the life of a mix-blood Muskogee/Cherokee/Irish elder. Ghost Dancer was raised in the traditional ways of the Red Stick Muskogee people, yet spent time each year with his Ani-yun-wiya (Cherokee) grandfather and learned those traditional ways as well. In this collection many spiritual beliefs of the native people are explained and discussed. He starts with some basic understandings and progresses to details of the Purification Lodge and the Medicine Wheel as he was taught by the Old Ones. Many of the stories are in a conversational tone and you get the feeling of sitting around a sacred fire and listening to an elder speak. This is a very comfortable way to learn these teachings.

Too bad theses reviews don¿t have a 0 star category. Another book written, produced, and published by members of the Wannabe Tribe. If you want a mixture of New Age and pretend -Indian material, this is the book for you. If you would rather have serious material about the American Indian, look for something else in Barnes and Noble.
