Recommended for young adults or parents to read with their kids
on December 26, 2016
Not what I expected, but still useful. I was hoping for more depth- a series of stories, teachings, or meditations to help me get closer to creator, but the book was very small was just a page for each day with a short quote from a tribal leader and/or a "did you know?" fact of some kind or a "this day in Native history" fact. Each month there was one 'red road lesson', most of which any adult would already be familiar with. That being said, I would recommend that parents buy this book and read the date with their young ones, or perhaps give it as a gift to a 'coming of age' young adult the year before their vision quest or maybe as a gift for a girl's sunrise ceremony (or whatever your tribe's equivalent). It is an easy read, very appropriate for young people. Parents- it would take two minutes to do it every morning with your kid, and once a month you could discuss that 'red road lesson', and expand on it with your own teachings.
