Despite its title, this book is not a feel- good introduction to American Indian spirituality. Rather it is a slap in the face that says, 'Hey, wake up! This is what it happening to Native peoples and it's also happening to all of us. The chapter on Hawaii alone should move anyone from innocence about American 'democracy' to angry disillusionment. For those already so transformed, it will provide up-to-date reinforcement. In a very coherent style with an optimum amount of background and statistics, LaDuke offers us a miner's cannary warning, some solid Native principles, and enough scientific facts that we can move forward informed and motivated, aware that we are related in a grave struggle.
