By WichacpiHoskila VINE VOICE on June 24, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book is the center of a very personal story. I read it and found it remarkable in its philosophy, the way it examines Indigenous religions without lending itself to New Age or Plastic Shaman nonsense. Vinson Brown had an accurate and insightful comprehension of the theology of the holy men he lived with, such as Frank Fools Crow and others. At times in his life, Indian holy people would set their own pipes aside at ceremonies when Vinson's was unbundled, in reverent deference to his authenticity. I found myself urgently wanting to know more. Years ago, I did something bizarre--I called the publisher and asked how to speak with Vinson Brown. I was told that he had passed away about a week or so earlier. I was discouraged until they told me that his son-in-law, a wonderful Miq'mak Indian man, was tyhere and would I like to speak with him? That man was Lionel Pinn Little Eagle, and he became one of my dearest friends. I illustrated Lionel's book, Greengrass Pipe Dancers, and Lionel was one of my groomsmen and conducted the sweatlodge ceremony for me before my wedding 11 years ago.

I realize people are unlikely to find these details helpful in a book review, but it's seldom tjhat I am able to review a book in such a way that goes beyond an assessment of its scholarship and content, and remark on the personal impact it's had. Vinson Brown was on to something.

I read this book many years ago and was impressed with the scope of prophetic visions it covers from the various Native American tribes. This has been a very interesting theme to me. Also, the color art work is extremely well done by Jim Red Corn of the Osage Nation of Oklahoma.

I encourage mainly people from the Americas, from Pole to Pole to read these important prophecies.
There is a lot of news these days about how immigrants have helped the formation of this great continent, but I do not hear much about the destruction, the abuses, the killings, and suffering of the aboriginal people in the three Americas. Some countries like Spain, and United Kingdom, and religious organizations such as the Roman Catholic Church, just to name one, are still not sorry for the devastation that they brought to the wonderful cultures of the Americas, not only that but the abuse still going on in many places.
Do we have to celebrate Columbus Day? Does the Catholic Church had to declare Junipero Serra (missionary from Spain) a Saint after he was part of the brutality used against the natives in the area of California in the 1700's, to colonize and convert them?
I can go on for long time talking about this, it is deep in my heart. I feel the suffering when I visited countries like Bolivia, Peru, and reservations in the US and Canada. May be because part of my ancestors had been killed long ago and far away, the pain is present today, here and there and needs to be healed. We do not have to believe in the prophecies that this book is mentioning, but we have to believe is time for the dignity of this great people of the Americas to be restored

The authors have consulted many different tribes and groups and found some of the same themes in dreams and visions of the wise people -- all pointing to a time of suffering for the Native Americans, and then later a time of peace and unity. It is small but covers a lot of cultures.

This book has become one of those kinds of books I turn to like many turn to the Bible. I had so many "aha's" after reading this and have shared it with anyone who will listen. HIGHLY recommended!
