Tomorrow I begin a 72 hour class to learn how to live in harmony with nature. It's a relatively new field of study called Permaculture. But it's not new, only forgotten. As the author states on page 27, "So it was part of our consciousness to recognize and honor the interconnectedness of all living things." In seeking to destroy and assimilate those with this wisdom, we are now the position of trying to find it again. My heart is for the healing of the earth, and those who walk on it - in the Spirit of the One who made all.

Sign Language: A Look at the Historic and Prophetic Landscape of America
Dancing My Dream depicts Native people doing regular jobs, working hard to support their families, and striving to live spiritual lives in an increasingly more secular world. Through describing his life and spirituality, Petoskey also demonstrates Indian ways are still valuable in today's world. As a Christian minister he teaches Christianity in a way that's compatible with Native American ways of relating to the Creator, and gives lectures about the Indian boarding school program.
In talking about the past, Petoskey doesn't rant about how our schools, government, and news media are full of omissions and lies--He simply states the facts, describes his and his family's responses to them, and lets readers draw their own conclusions and have their own reactions. His style is very simple, straightforward, but very deep, mixing straight prose with short chapters of poetry he's written about his everyday spirituality. Petoskey ranks right up there with N. Scott Momaday in how his poetry blends the natural with the spiritual, and in demonstrating how deep, peaceful emotions and being in nature can help one feel close to the Creator.
