5.0 out of 5 stars For anyone searching for answers about native philosophy., September 7, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Mother Earth Spirituality: Native American Paths to Healing Ourselves and Our World (Religion and Spirituality) (Paperback)
I have read Ed McGaa's work and given it to many friends. It has gone from my hand to theirs, and from theirs to many others, including the sunday school at the Catholic Church in Elizabeth Colorado. The children their now have a much better understanding of Native people and their culture, they even rehearse Ed's prayer "Mother Earth, I seek to protect you", in Lakota.
It's hard to say where words may go once they are out and what effect they may have. I thank Ed for his time and effort, and commitment to bringing us all together.
A review of his work...Ed bridges the gap. He explains with clarity how his people think, about customs and ceremony. About how everyone is related and can benefit from Native Wisdom. He also teaches basic language which in itself helps to understand culture. I could go on, but the basic thing is that Ed teaches is truth for those who are seeking truth. If you are looking for entertainment with little concern of acuracy, he is not the author for you.
