Editorial Reviews

Review

"Readers will be challenged intellectually and touched emotionally by these remarks. Teachers will find the arrangement of the book very convenient for reference and startling discussions." — Library Journal"A beautiful and exciting work."— Louise Erdrich

From 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.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

My work has been a constant search, from various perspectives, for an authentic American spirituality, integrating our western Judeo-Christian tradition with the other traditions of the world, and especially the indigenous spirituality of the people who first inhabited this continent. Someone once called me a “guerilla theologian,” and I think that is fairly accurate.

I am deeply concerned with the human condition and our responsibility to the earth, the people on it, and the generations to come. I believe that we are, at heart, spiritual beings seeking spiritual meaning, and I try to honor this search in my work and my daily life.

If there is a quote I live by, it is the entreaty of the Lakota Chief, Sitting Bull, who said to the U.S. government that was trying to eradicate his people, "Come, let us put our minds together to see what kind of life we can create for our children."

Much more about me and my work can be found at my website, www.kentnerburn.com.
