It was a great informative short book with brief statements from various Native American leaders and some rare photographs of them in their cultural dress. The statements all revolved around the Great Spirit and their thoughts about religion. I found it very inspirational, and learned a few things too. It was a good insight to see how the original inhabitants viewed the Europeans and their religion. Easy to read, well laid out, and beautifully illustrated.

Excellent photo selections, not the stuff you see all over. Very easy read with some excellent prayers & blessings, as well as what other readers have mentioned in getting a perspective on religious issues from the tribal perspective. Makes me wish my comparative religion class in university would have included some Native American information, as it is striking how similar the basic tenants are to the other major world religions.

I am about half through this sweet little gem. I love to see how the white man is viewed from the Indian perspective. I love to see how they humbly viewed the white man's God only to see a confused view as there were so many different flavors of churches and viewpoints to the "right" way to God. To the Indian, religion is like a wheel with spokes. All spokes lead to the center of the wheel, which is God. How you get to God is up to you, but it is all the same God. Beautiful.

Also, the Indian liv

A beautiful book filled with the philosophies of various Indian Chiefs, it highlights their way of life and what they based their ethos on that being "the great spirit"
Life for them was very simple yet they were happy, indeed there is a lesson for modernity to learn from these wise people.

I liked this book. Very interesting to read how the Native American practiced their religion. And how they were urged to change to another.

This book was very different than what I had expected. I had thought that i would be an analysis of Native American beliefs but it was more of a compilation of these beliefs. Interesting nonetheless.

Excellent little book with wisdom and perspective of Native Americans who witnessed the invasion of the Europeans. The Native Americans were treated harshly by the white settlers and uprooted from land they lived on for over 11,000 years.

Even though it is too late what we did to Native Americans, we can at least read their wisdom and learn from it.

The Fitzgeralds chronicle a remarkable collection of Indian prayers and mores of days gone by. I read comparing their way of life to ours in the early days of settling this country which gave me a lot to think about

Such a special book. Simple yet profound spiritual wisdom from 19th century Native American leaders. I loved every page.
