"This book in its scholarship and its passion is one of the most powerful indictments ever written about the treatment of original indigenous people, both here and abroad.
"This book in its scholarship and its passion is one of the most powerful indictments ever written about the treatment of original indigenous people, both here and abroad. But it is also a call to a new fairness and equity between peoples, one that can restore autonomy to those cultures upon which our continued life on this planet may depend."
-Jean Houston, from the Foreword
"This study of aboriginal indigenous thought should be read, studied, and pondered by anyone who cares about the civilization and culture of the conquerors, and about the possibilities of human existence, thought, and creative experience that have been marginalized and suppressed-not to speak of the terrible fate of the victims themselves. It is a remarkable contribution."
"Now is the time to set the records straight. The book: We have the Right to Exist, is well written, well researched, a very thorough and sensible approach to the relationship now enjoyed only by the Federal Government with the Indian Tribes. 'Indian is an exploitation word along with the official designations of the Indian Tribes. To change that, it will take a concerted effort by all the Native Americans. This book is a first step."
-Maynard Swan, Columnist Ojibwe News/Native American
