Cultural Writing. Native American Studies. In a luminescent testimony to the ancient teaching ability of story, internationally acclaimed lecturer, artist and author of Secrets of the Talking Jaguar, and Long Life, Honey in the Heart, Martin Prechtel brings alive the powerful Tzutujil Mayan tale of THE DISOBEDIENCE OF THE DAUGHTER OF THE SUN. Prechtel's gripping and inimitable style gives the reader a beautifully told and illustrated tale followed by five "layers" of commentary that present the deeper Indigenous understandings buried in the story, as well as Prechtel's own thoughts for modern people, on global warming, ecstasy and time.

Martin Prechtel's life, the well known subject of his previous books Secrets of the Talking Jaguar and Long Life, Honey in the Heart, took him from his native New Mexico upbringing as a half-blood, native American from a Pueblo Indian reservation to the village of Santiago Atitlan where he eventually served the Tzutujil Mayan population as a full village member becoming a principal in the body of village leaders, responsible for instructing the young people in the meanings of their ancient stories that took place in the rituals of adult rights of passage.
Martín once again resides in his native New Mexico where he is a writer, teacher, speaker, musician, and healer. Teaching internationally through story, music and writing, Martín helps people in many lands reconnect with their own sense of place-their sense of the daily sacred and their search for the Indigenous Soul.Review:
"Magical yet profoundly political, The Disobedience of the Daughter of the Sun returns us to our indigenous beginnings, re-connecting us to our original human form. In these genetically engineered times, nothing could be more revolutionary."-Michael Brownstein, author of World on Fire
