Groundswell- Indigenous Wisdom and The Moral Revolution for Climate Change Paperback – February 14, 2017
|New from||Used from|
"The most important environmental development of the last decade is the full emergence and full recognition of the native leadership at the very front of every fight. One of the things that makes that leadership so powerful is its deep roots in tradition and thought; this book gives the reader some sense of that tradition, though of course it is so vast that it would take a thousand such books to capture it all!" -Bill McKibben; Author Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet
"Groundswell: Indigenous Wisdom and The Moral Revolution for Climate Change by Joe Neidhardt, is a powerful text that introduces a much needed perspective on the issue of climate change. Much has been said and written on the topic of climate change from a purely logical perspective, which is essential, but Groundswell: Indigenous Wisdom and The Moral Revolution for Climate Change introduces an equally important perspective, that of the spiritual implications of climate change. From the perspective of Native people, we start to unravel the complex emotions when learning of the negative effects of climate change through an entirely different lens than the lens supplied to us through westernized education." - Forrest Goodluck; Award-winning youth filmmaker, appears opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant
"Groundswell is about helping one another through the threat of death we experience on this increasingly traumatized planet - in the air, on the land and in the water - and nurturing it back to life. Neidhardt and his kindred spirits offer us new, yet familiar, resources for a creative participation in that gracious process." -Thomas G. Christensen; Author of An African Tree of Life
"This book shares Indigenous knowledge that can teach us to listen to and be in relationship to the Earth in a way that honors the sacredness and interdependence of all life forms. A paradigm shift, informed by Indigenous ways of knowing and acting, is crucial in this time of climate change." - Laura Stivers; Author of Disrupting Homelessness: Alternative Christian Approaches
