Editorial Reviews

Review

An indigenous inheritance exists for humankind that takes many forms from many places and peoples regarding how humankind might reexamine lifeways that...suggest in practical terms how we might adopt life-enhancing cultures situated in a symbiotic relationship of nature and culture. Will this indigenous inheritance be denied and go unclaimed? I hope not, for the sake of the rich diversity of life we share this planet with and for the sake of our human selves. It is time to issue a Red Alert. --Indian Country Today, November 24, 2009

"Taking a hard look at the biggest problem that we face today - the damaging way we live on this earth - Daniel Wildcat draws upon ancient Native American wisdom and nature-centered beliefs to advocate a modern strategy to combat global warming." --Green (Living) Review, December 17, 2009

Red Alert! offers a dose of indigenous realism as well as hope. It has a place where individuals want to explore what contemporary indigenous societies have to offer...a place wherever people are willing to share fruitful as well as difficult discussions. Anyone who is wondering what should we do? will benefit from the indigenuity of Red Alert! --Winds of Change Winter 2010

Arguing against man's battle with nature and stating that there is no controlling the Earth, Daniel R. Wildcat presents many intriguing ideas for readers that is well worth considering for those worried about the environment. "Red Alert!" is a top pick for those seeking second opinions about the environmental crises." --Wisconsin Bookwatch

This is an outstanding book. The topic is timely, a red alert situation for the whole world, a wake-up call from a distinctly native framework. The clarity of the writing is fantastic. It is easily accessible to anyone and it is a clear statement of indigenous thought and a call to action to move toward practices which native people employed to crate and maintain a sustainable world. Great critique of current practices in society. It challenges our apathy in the face of potential world destruction. It is a great book for a course for undergraduates in many fields, but anyone can read and enjoy it.

Enthusiastic readers will agree, once in a while a book will dramatically change or deepen your view of a specific issue. My recent research into the language and customs of the Yuchi (Euchee) members of the Muscogee Nation of Oklahoma, introduced me to the admirable work of Dr. Dan Wildcat PhD. Dr. Wildcat is a prominent, respected scholar, and member of the Muscogee Nation. He is a professor at the Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas.

Dr. Wildcat's forte' is in environmental research, and indigenous knowledge. My curiosity led me to video of some of his appearances at various symposiums around the country. His focus is on 'Global Warming' or as he refers to it 'Global Burning'. In RED ALERT, Dr. Wildcat introduces the reader to a harsh look into a devastating problem, but, ultimately, with a hopeful solution.

Although, the Professor is more convinced than I of the entire human cause of "Global Burning", I believe his argument is convincing, and gives credence to cyclical natural events. Despite the weight of blame, the human race is responsible for many vile acts against Mother Earth. Dr. Wildcat's solution rests in the indigenous peoples of our country, and around the world.

The tone of his book is poignant, and filled with passionate concern. About half of the book focuses on the problem, while the other half is a well thought out outline to a solution. Dr. Wildcat's resolution promotes the idea of a return to nature, living within our own unique geographic area. His theory points out many destructive problems that are a result of our Global Society. He often refers to this as "Homogenized".

Looking to the past to save the future,scholar Daniel R. Wildcat writes in Red Alert!: Saving the Planet with Indigenous Knowledge (Speaker's Corner) that people can tackle and resolve environmental problems by drawing on native wisdom.

The key sentence seems to be this: "The advantage our ancestors possessed was that they did not operate with the delusion that they ought to be in control of the natural world beyond their human selves."

This short book is oriented to thought and is not a guide to action but it's worth reminding us what we've lost when we started thinking we were in control of the world and all its creatures.
