Better balance of feminine and masculine images than the Rider-Waite.

This is the first deck with which I learned to do readings - and it is still my deck of choice. The meanings and illustrations provide more room for intuition and personal interpretation than traditional decks. It also gives Native American views, teachings, and history. If you feel drawn to the Native American way of life (Shamanism, animal teachings, etc) or are looking for other interpretations for traditional tarot cards, this is the deck for you. The companion book will offer even more information and insight.

I've used this deck for years and love its multi-tribal themes, its colorful artwork, and the intuition with which it was designed. Better balance of feminine and masculine images than the Rider-Waite.

First, let me say that I like this deck and do not find it is any way disrespectful to Native American culture. I own about 50 decks and, with rare exception, they are all patterned after the Rider-Waite-Smith deck as is this deck. Because I use tarot more for self-exploration and meditation than divination, I am always looking for imagery that is different while still following the RWS model.

I recently, first, purchased the companion book, Star-Spider Speaks, and, then, purchased the deck and, only after that, became curious and began reading the reviews at the tarot websites and was amazed at the controversy surrounding Native American themed decks. As I said, I like the deck but especially liked the companion book which has a lot of fascinating information both about tarot and Native American cultures.

The deck follows the RWS format (78 cards, 22 major arcana, fully illustrated minor arcana and RWS card meanings) but not completely: if there seemed a conflict between "the spirit and feeling of the Native American Way" and "standard interpretations," the meanings given reflect her understanding of the former and does not always match RWS. (See refernce to the deck's Devil card below.) This was explicitly stated and clear. The cards' imagery is composed of line drawings filled in with mostly pastel colors and black; the border is a delicately geometric black design. So, even though the colors are soft, there is contrast. The intricately detailed back is reversible for those of you who read reverse cards - I don't. The narrow card size is comfortable to hold. The 105 page "little white book" that comes with the deck is clear and very generous with details.

Format: Cards
This was published in 1982 when US Games were busy producing multicultural themed decks that showed the universal nature of the tarot. I purchased it in 1985, worked with it some and packed it away. I dug it out today and realized that it is vital to my collection. Why? The box and LWB is very retro-not the slick, modern, clean presentations of packs published after 2000. This deck was educational and sheds a glimpse of light on Native American spirituality. Sadly, it was just a glimpse. I wanted to learn more.

The art is primative, drawn and colored from an untrainted eye, giving it a "folk-kitch" appeal. Most of the majors are accurate to traditional images. My big question was how did the white buffalo befome the devil? I would have used the European imperialists arriving on a steam engine, destroying the natural environment. Otherwise, Geronimo is the King of Sword! How accurate! The various tribes and symbols are tossed together randomly presenting a culturally eclectic blend of all indigenous North Americal people.

This is not a deck to begin learning to read the cards with. Only experienced readers could interpret it and work with it effectively, particularly readers with a Native American background. Otherwise, it is a valuable collector deck that makes a serious collection complete.

This deck is good once a person has some experience. I collect Tarot decks and books, and do professional readings. This deck is better left for those with more background kowledge. The artwork and colors are terrific and true to the Native American themes of the various tribes.

I am a Native American person and I've enjoyed these cards for years. This is my second order of them. Be sure to order the book with this deck. Gonzalez includes a lot of historical meanings within the atmosphere of the card interpretations. Also, the art work on each card is very beautifully detailed. I highly recommend this card deck for beginners and people who are interested in Native American spiritual connections.
