About the Author
Corbin Harney is an elder and spiritual leader of the Western Shoshone, a Native people indigenous to Idaho, Nevada, Utah, and California. Born in Idaho, his mother died a few hours after his birth, and he was raised by medicine people of the Owyhee Indian reservation.
Since 1957 he has worked with medicine women of Battle Mountain, Nevada, running the Sundance Ceremony, sweat lodges, and helping sick people. As a medicine person, he has also been working steadily to preserve and protect the sacred sites and burial grounds of his people. In addition, he has been instrumental in helping to stop nuclear testing on Shoshone land at the Nevada Test Site. Corbin has spoken to the British Parliament, groups in Switzerland, Asia, and throughout the United States.
