Personally I found this to be more folklore than “meditation”, although meditation/peace certainly exists outside of philosophical Asian (and European) cultures, so I guess if they had to make that first baseman’s stretch to get the Navajo into this “Meditations With” series, that’s okay.

From a cross-cultural/human/One God perspective, I think Coyote is basically (my friend) Hermes, and Changing Woman (who I’ve seen before in that online goddess oracle I use, but knew nothing about) is basically Girlie/Femmie. I don’t know. It’s like…. It’s like they’re my friend, you know.

From a sense of differences, the Navajo are different because their society places more value on the past, and nature, and also has specific language and national characteristics and loyalties (eg harried by the whites, French-German style feuds with say the Pueblo and other Southwest tribes in the old days). Our society values more change and technology, and white supremacy. Which isn’t to say that a scientist is necessarily more or as racist as others, (although of course it’s possible to support our science as the white man’s way), but we value all of those things.

I’m also often surprised when I read about Native cultures how often they come from fear—when they come from love it’s less of a surprise, somehow—and also how non-intuitive their specific healing systems are to an Anglo.

Well told stories with beautiful illustrations. The stories were more modern then I had expected and touched on many topics. I wish there was more information about where the stories themselves came from. The notes at then end were helpful but I wanted to know more.

Good example of a Navajo legend. Could lead to interesting discussions about other cultures. Longer than I’d like, but good for 2nd-5th grade.
