American Indian Self-Image Workshop Manual.
Rainer, Howard T.
A self-image workshop manual for American Indians aims to help Indian people set goals and excel in whatever they plan in life. A section entitled "Are You an Eagle?" tells of the significance of eagles in traditional American Indian Culture, discusses those who merit an eagle feather for accomplishment, and lists characteristics of eagles (and chickens). "It's All in Your Mind" compares development of the mind to planting a garden and lists positive and negative attitudes. "Looking at Yourself and Others" discusses the importance of first impressions. "Let's Talk About Being Indian" tells a story about Indians and change, and gives 13 thoughts about Indian power, 13 points of Indian pride, and 23 positive statements for Indians. "Goals, Who Needs Them?" discusses the need for goals, how to set personal goals, and commitment to goals. "Who Is Your Friend?" shows 12 ways to tell a good friend and lists 15 guidelines for picking good friends and 6 qualities desirable in friends. "Life is a Big Race" tells ways to finish the race and ways to get sidetracked, contrasts different kinds of Indians, and lists attributes of a super Indian and a hero. Ten million-dollar thoughts are given. (MH)
