Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ohiyesa's works offer the most complete explanation of the philosophy and moral code of the Plains Indian. Providing much of the basis of our knowledge of their sacred worldview, they speak directly to the ecological crisis and the de-humanization of man so often discussed in our time. On a deeper level, Ohiyesa's message speaks to every person who seeks a spiritual way in the midst of materialism and industrial technology.

His prophetic voice speaks now across centuries with an urgency still fresh and original. Not only should students of Native American philosophy carefully read this book, it should be essential reading for all people who search the ancient worlds to better understand the problems which press upon us today.

Synopsis:

By the first Native American author to live simultaneously in both the traditional world of the Sioux and modern white civilization.
