Restoring the Kinship Worldview: Indigenous Voices Introduce 28 Precepts for Rebalancing Life on Planet Earth

by Wahinkpe Topa (Four Arrows) Author and Darcia Narvaez Author

In this powerful collection, editors Wahinkpe Topa and Darcia Narvaez bring together indigenous wisdom from 28 different respected sources with the goal of reorienting our relationship to the earth and to each other. Diagnosing the ills of our current worldview, Topa and Narvaez have brought together voices whose thinking offers a different approach, one more in line with the accumulated knowledge that guided indigenous people around the world for untold centuries before the advent of colonialism and imperialism. With essays from Robin Wall Kimmerer, Mourning Dove, Winona LaDuke, and Xiuhtezcatl Martinez and others, Restoring the Kinship Worldview offers a sick planet a glimpse at what non-hierarchical governance and laws based in the natural world could do for the human world.
