Item Description...
How is the thinking of Native Americans different from Western ways of thinking? Drawing on his own experiences living with Navajo Indians and with the Yup`ik tribe in Alaska, Calvin Luther Martin offers deep insights into the stories and the mythic, circular thinking of these people. He shows how Native Americans understand the world and the way true human beings should conduct themselves in it.

surprise surprise  Jul 29, 2003
i don't know what i expected when i bought this
but i know i didn't expect quantum physics
a very nice surprise
instead of just getting the same old romantic notions of indians as proto-hippies, we get an introduction into some seriously challenging and exciting concepts and experiences of existence and reality
The Way of Courtesy and Trust  Apr 17, 2000
Calvin Luther Martin is a non-Native writing about Native American knowledge--a delicate and dicey thing to do, considering that the history of accuracy, respect, understanding and justice is not good. It's essential for non-Natives to read contemporary Native authors, but it's also important for non-Native writers to help other non-Natives build their own bridges of understanding. Martin has lived among Indigenous Americans in the southwest and far north, and learned from them as well as teaching there on subjects as various as quantum physics and alcoholism, in places like a seminary and a prison. He writes well, and often eloquently. A philosophical view builds and winds through the chapters. This is not New Age mush. It is scholarly and personal at the same time. It's intellectually sophisticated, and will bear repeated readings. But it's not obscure. It's down to earth. Martin dares to see that the most advanced quantum view of reality, and the oldest indigenous view of reality are basically the same. He writes movingly of the leap that Einstein and famed ecologist Loren Eiseley couldn't make: that fear creates a fearsome universe, and that compassion, courtesy and trust in relation to all things are the way of the human being in the world. Martin brings together the voices of contemporary American Indians, explorers and ethnologists of past centuries; he weaves threads of Native and non-Native writing. As readers we find not just an important and mind-expanding philosophy beautifully developed, but sharp scenes that inform us on why the pain in Native America persists today--and why that pain is different but real. Martin pulls together ideas that have solid support from others and takes them his own step further. We get some feeling for him as a person, too, a very interesting one, with a wonderful partner. I am grateful to him for this book.
