Review:

Taking the lead from John F. Kennedy's Pulitzer Prize winning Profiles in Courage, Steven McFadden presents the stories and thinking of 17 Native American spiritual teachers. The Iroquois shieldmaker, the Inca Gnostic, the Apache Theosophist, the Wampanoag storyteller, the Huichol shaman, the Maya prophet, the Penobscot Ph.D., the Cherokee Buddhist--this is a fascinating and eclectic group of men and women each with a passionate vision of spirituality based on the concepts of respect, balance, and harmony found in Native American traditions. Their intelligent and compassionate ideas will surprise and enlighten.

From Library Journal:

This is a collection of interviews with Native American elders modeled after John F. Kennedy's famous Profiles in Courage . McFadden, a senior correspondent for Planet Earth Magazine , talked to a group of elders about their personal experiences and asked them to reveal the knowledge they have accumulated over the years about living in harmony with the Earth and its creatures. Some elders broke a traditional taboo by speaking of sacred things to non-Native Americans. The 14 profiles reflect a diversity of backgrounds, educations, and heritages. The thread that runs through each interview is that humanity is on the edge of a new world, and the need to have a new political outlook, ecology, sociology, or spirituality is imperative. Other elders profiled combine their native heritage with society's knowledge. This wise and provocative collection is highly recommended for many collections.
