Overview

The writings of Joseph Epes Brown are considered amongst the most important studies on the North American Indian undertaken in the twentieth century. His works have been translated into numerous languages and are helping to re-ignite interest in the American Indian religious tradition. The Spiritual Legacy of the American Indian: Commemorative Edition, not only presents his works on the fundamental and universal characteristics of the American Indian culture and tradition, but the previously unpublished correspondence sheds light on Dr. Brown’s time spent on the reservations immersed in the very cultures and peoples that he wrote about. Enhanced by previously unpublished photographs from Dr. Brown’s own private collection, The Spiritual of Legacy of the American Indian is a fascinating exposition of the often repeated Lakota phrase Mitakuye Oyasin, “We are all related.”
