A story told from several perspectives streamed together of the religion, and wisdom of the plains Indians as their world is being invaded by the Americans. The stories have much wisdom, and teachings to be learned from. An excellent read.

Doubts about the cultural accuracy or authenticity of the author aside, this is a book that makes one think, and that one must read several times for everything to soak in, and even then, more will come over time. Like seeing the symbolism in other people's so-called Fairy Tales, every story can be seen for it's symbolisms, and this gives a very very pluralistic way of viewing the world, as with the complex imagery and symbolism of the Shield Brotherhood and multiple names.

Very saddening to see what human nature can do to us, and very very surprising at first, shocking even, to see such different attitudes toward sexuality, and especially to learn of a Buffalo wanting to give, and that therfore a woman we would see as a slut/harlot/prostitute could actually be seen alternatively as someone who wants so much to give and to heal, but is taken advantage of or merely used by those who do not understand. As someone years ago described her understanding of the Sacred Temple Prostitutes, as healers rather than mere ... "pros" as my dad used to say.

This book was as hard to read as Dee Brown's [b:Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West|76401|Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee An Indian History of the American West|Dee Brown|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1388209846s/76401.jpg|1240262]. Particularly as a mixed-blood Cherokee, according to my adoptive Great-Grandmother.


Reading the book Seven Arrows by Hyemeyohsts Storm

P 7 like in Babylon 5 where it they say it's the universe trying to understand itself

P 10 finally someone who wouldn't tell me to stop asking so damned many questions!

P 62: Wow. Confronted with what appears to be a new Power that rewards killing it would make sense to kill them. So, Given that point of view I'm almost surprized that they tried to make peace at all.

P. 106: same thing the British did to the Cherokee in 1769. [b:The Memoirs of Lt. Henry Timberlake: The Story of a Soldier, Adventurer, and Emissary to the Cherokees, 1756-1765|1056170|The Memoirs of Lt. Henry Timberlake The Story of a Soldier, Adventurer, and Emissary to the Cherokees, 1756-1765|Duane H. King|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1348817672s/1056170.jpg|1042725]

P 243 Of people get sick from not caring. Interesting.

P 264. Wow. Four years banishment for being abusive towards another person. Excellent.

Sigh...
