Overview


We recognize the philosophy of the original Americans as coming from the earth we walk on, from those who preceded us. As we read the wisdom of these peoples, it is possible to feel a reconnection with our land and ourselves. This beautiful collection of the best of Native American wisdom features the thoughts of Chief Joseph, Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, Black Elk, Ohiyesa, and many others on Native American ways of living, learning, and dying. Taken from orations, recorded observations of life and social affairs, and other first-person testimonies, this book selects a wide range of Native American wisdom and distills it to its essence in short, digestible quotes that are meaningful and timeless -- perhaps even more timely now than when they were written.

This book isolates the essence of Native American wisdom: the essential harmony of natural and human worlds--in short, accessible bits of philosophy. A major percentage of the profits will be donated to organizations supporting Native American causes.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The compilers of these fascinating quotations have placed side by side both familiar and obscure pieces of Native American philosophical and religious thought. Arranged by topic, the quotations give the general reader or the serious student a layered depth of insight into Native American ethos. Growing up, learning, everyday living, faith, morals, ecology, as well as Western civilization receive comment from historical and contemporary Native American political and spiritual leaders. Readers will be challenged intellectually and touched emotionally by these succinct remarks. Teachers will find the arrangement of the book very convenient for reference and starting discussions. Serious students will find the historical and biographical notes most helpful. This volume's overall appeal will make it useful for YAs, too.-- Bruce Alan Hanson, Wayzata East Junior High Sch. Lib., Minn.
