Wisdomkeepers: Meetings with Native American Spiritual Elders.
Arden, Harvey; Wall, Steve
This book documents meetings with Native American elders who shared their tribal stories of origin, sacred traditions, social life and customs, and traditional wisdom. The idea for the book began when a Cherokee medicine man requested that his tribal knowledge be documented for future generations. For the past 10 years, the spiritual elders of various Native American nations have met to share their tribal stories. Using the elders' own words, the book profiles: Charlie Knight (Ute); Frank Fools Crow (Lakota); Audrey Shenandoah (Onondaga); Mathew King (Lakota); Corbett Sundown (Seneca); Harriett Starleaf Gumbs (Shinnecock); Eddie Benton-Banai (Ojibway); Vernon Cooper (Lumbee); Oren Lyons (Onondaga); Leila Fisher (Hoh); Buffalo Jim (Seminole); Tom Porter (Mohawk); Thomas Banyacya (Hopi); Uncle Frank Davis (Pawnee); Leon Shenandoah (Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy); Irving Powless, Sr. (Onondaga); and Louis Farmer (Onondaga). Includes many photographs. (LP)
