Native Scienceby Gregory Cajete
Synopses & Reviews
Five centuries ago Europeans arrived on the American continent, but they did not listen to the people who had lived for millennia in harmony with this land. Cajete now tells their story of indigenous science as a way of understanding, experiencing, and feeling the natural world.
Book News Annotation:
A Tewa Indian from Santa Clara Pueblo, Cajete (education and cultural studies, U. of New Mexico) introduces readers to the Indigenous view of reality. He delves into storytelling; the philosophy of native science; community ecology; plants, food, medicine, and gardening; animals; a sense of place; astronomy; and how the approach can help the world.
