Joseph, Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, Black Elk, Ohiyesa, and many others share their insights on Native American ways of living, learning, and dying. There is something archetypal about the philosophy of the original Americans, especially to the sensibilities of modern European Americans. We recognize it as coming from the earth we walk on, from those who preceded us. As we read the wisdom of these peoples, it is possible to feel a reconnection with our land and ourselves. Taken from orations, recorded observations of life and social affairs, and other first-person testimonies, this book selects the best of Native American wisdom and distills it to its essence in short, digestible quotes that are meaningful and timeless — perhaps even more timely now than when they were written.

Today's Native Americans still turn to the ancient knowledge and the wisdom of the elders. They have learned to seek vision the old way. Known for their ability to find the wisdom of the ancients and apply it to finding a more spiritual life today, Native American teachings help us comprehend the sacredness of Mother Earth, engender a deep respect for all living things, and develop the ability to find a place in the circle of life. Exploring Native American Wisdom brings the supernatural world of their ancestors back to life to show all of us how we can find peace within. We are shown how to live successfully in a rapidly changing world while reopening the ancient door to the divine power and wisdom that resides within each one of us. The reader is invited into a mystical dimension where humans are able to communicate with animals, fire, wind, water, earth, and each other. We see how Native Americans today follow the same traditional path to understanding of self and the supernatural using vision quests, dreams, ceremonies, and the exploration of natural laws. We learn about the wisdom of the Old Ones, how we can enter a mystical dimension of self-discovery with the oldest Spirit of Creation, and how to discover inner talents and gifts as we journey to the top of the Sacred Mountain to meet Eagle... and fly to a new dimension filled with energy and power.
