Metaphysics of Modern Existence was informing for me at the time I read it at Portland State Univ. in Portland,Oregon in 1979. This author has been the most prolific American Indian attorney in all modern times. His mind-set in Metaphysics of Modern Existence provides the readers without any knowledge of issues surrounding American Indian issues, with openmindedness & improved awareness. The readers also learn the history of broken dreams of the American Indian through a series of historianic scenarios provided by the author, with his goal of educating the reader ignorant of the critical socio-political, economic and even more so the spiritual/religious issues for the unborn seven generations into the future.

One of the main efforts of the author was to make public the need to have reform in the Bureau of Indian Affairs and Dept.Read more ›

Vine Deloria should be a required stop in all our educations. His perspective is Indian and human at a scale to which we should aspire. He is scholar and explorer, undaunted by cultural boundaries and assumptions. And a wit to boot.

By a visionary thinker whose point of view on contemporary culture is even more interesting today than when it was published in 1979.

This book is a treasure. I think this could quite possibly be Dr. Deloria Jr's best work. This is a great book for those interested in better understanding of Indigenous American Indian world view.
