Publisher Comments:

“Red Alert! offers insight, hope, and a path forward.”—Billy Frank Jr., Chairman, Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission

“What the world needs today is a good dose of indigenous realism,” says Native American scholar Daniel R. Wildcat in this thoughtful, forward-looking treatise. The Native response to the environmental crisis facing our planet, Red Alert! seeks to debunk our civilization’s long-misguided perception that humankind is at odds with nature or that it exerts control over the natural world.

Taking a hard look at the biggest problem that we face today—the damaging way we live on this earth—Wildcat draws upon ancient Native American wisdom and nature-centered beliefs to advocate a modern strategy to combat global warming. Inspiring and insightful, Red Alert! is a stirring call to action.

Daniel R. Wildcat (Yuchi, Muscogee) is the director of the American Indian studies program and the Haskell Environmental Research Studies Center at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas. He is the co-author with Vine Deloria Jr. of Power and Place: Indian Education in America and the co-author of Destroying Dogma: Vine Deloria Jr. and His Influence on American Society.

Synopsis:

The first published Native American response to the environmental crisis facing our planet.
