Overview

When the first Europeans landed in the "New World." The inhabitants called them Awaunageesuck; the strangers. Native American society comprised hundreds of nations speaking several hundred languages. They were united by such common bonds as their respect for nature and kinship, intense spirituality, courage and hardihood, and highly developed skills as hunters, farmers, gatherers, fisherman and artisans. These skills and beliefs were maintained through centuries of adversity, and passed on to new generations despite dwindling numbers and resources.

During the twentieth century, the native nations have seen a resurgence, through a reversal of the population decline, restored freedom to practice sacred traditions, and a newly reclaimed pride in this rich heritage. The Awaunageesuck have, at last, begun to appreciate and learn the values of these great nations. A glimpse of the ancient and profound wisdom informing the lives of America's first people can be found in the pages of Native American Wisdom

Must read for everyone. American Indians can teach us how to live with nature and in harmony and peace. They are the founding fathers of "green life".

A very nice little collection of Native American wisdom. I wish it had even more in it! It's interesting to me how much the Native American proverbs and ancient wisdom reflect the wisdom of the East and Asia, from where the Native American tribes are said to have come.
