This book is a must for anyone with sincere interest in the native american history and culture. The book is written in a form of a dialog and reads very well. It speaks very openly and in a lot of detail of the wrong doings by Europeans to the Native American and Indians all the way from Canada to South America. As an European of the 21st century it makes me very ashamed of what is in our past, even though surely I am not responsible for what our ancestors did...what has happened to the Native ...more

“If men were to colonize the moon or Mars—even with abundant supplies of oxygen, water, and food, as well as adequate protection against heat, cold, and radiation—they would not long retain their humanness, because they would be deprived of those stimuli which only Earth can provide. Similarly, we shall progressively lose our humanness even on Earth if we continue to pour filth into the atmosphere; to befoul soil, lakes, and rivers; to disfigure landscapes with junkpiles; to destroy wild plants and animals that do not contribute to monetary values; and thus transform the globe into an environment alien to our evolutionary past. The quality of human life is inextricably interwoven with the kinds and variety of stimuli man receives from the Earth and the life it harbors, because human nature is shaped biologically and mentally by external nature.

“His Crazy Horse’s anxious mind was swimming with questions. His heart told him that although things were peaceful now, the pale, hairy people would continue to come to the lands of the Lakota no matter what the treaties said. His previous experience with the settlers and their army told him that they spoke words with a deceitful heart. Did they have no Grandfathers and Grandmothers to teach them? Was there no love between parents and children? What else could make them so shameless, so devoid of any sense of place, of any sense of honor? Who were these people, and why did the blood flow like ice in his heart at the thought of them? Each unanswerable question only raised more concerns.” 1 likes
