"a rare find that gives both theoretical and practical insight into the worldview of the Native people. Highly recommended reading for anyone wishing not only to increase knowledge of Native Psychology but also to advance one's own worldview and to challenge preconceptions"--Canadian Psychology; "gives new meaning to philosophical inquiry...valuable"--The Canadian Journal of Native Studies; "a roots view of tribal ways of knowing and philosophical approach to the quest for knowledge of the things that matter most"--Reference & Research Book News.
