Audible Editor Reviews

Of course, it is disturbing to be reminded of all the ways that the European settlers took advantage of and stole from the Native Americans, but there is plenty of uplifting material in this audiobook. As I listened in my car, Native American Wisdom transported me to the forests and plains. I loved hearing the thoughts about the earth, about public discourse, and even about marriage. (Beth, VP & Publisher)

Publisher's Summary

Capture the beauty, power, and wisdom of the Native American oral tradition with this superlative collection of readings taken from the writings and speeches of people from many different tribes. The collection offers insights into Native American ways of living, learning, and dying, and helps us to feel a reconnection with the land and ourselves. The words of Chief Joseph, Sitting Bull, Ohiyesa, Black Elk, and others create a powerful listening experience.

    "Not the right format, and maybe not the right book"

    This is mostly a collection of short sayings. The collection is very valuable, but listening to them one after another does not really do them justice. This is the sort of book that one ought to pick up in order to read a page or two, think for a minute, and then go on.

    If you're looking for a smattering of native American thought (as I was), this will do the job. But at the risk of giving away my imprisonment in a thoroughly Western mind, I could have used a bit more editorial effort to organize the various strands of thought. For example, the tribe of each speaker is given, but there is no explanation of what significance this might hold, or how the tribes related to one another. Dates for the quotations would also have been illuminating. I think most listeners who buy this title because they are curious about native American thought will find their curiosity largely unsatisfied.

    "Good Lessons"

    Great insight into honest thought. No hustle and bustle just plain truths for a wonderful life. My 17y/o daughter listens to it sometimes to bring herself back down to earth. Just a calming listening

    "Heavy words to seriously consider"

    This book contains groups of Native American sayings that can still be applied today. It is broken up by chapters associated with different concepts. Each saying is read by one of three narrators in calm and relaxing tone.

    "True words"

    You cannot help but listen to these words with the ears of your heart. We could still save our mother if all people would listen and judge ourselves rightly.
