Through expert text and beautiful images, learn about the history of Native Americans and their profound appreciation of the cycles of nature and belief in the cosmic interconnectedness of all things.

In The Sacred Wisdom of Native Americans, Professor Larry J. Zimmerman tells the tragic tale of their conquest and dispossession, followed by their survival against the odds and the renewal of pride in a distinctive cultural heritage. Learn about American Indian traditions and the history behind them that create a unique Native American identity. Their crafts and their reverence for the land are also both described in detail—inspiring us to turn our thoughts to the natural world and our own place in it.

With gorgeous full-color photographs and illustrations of Native American people, monuments, land, and artifacts, this 320-page volume also includes:
  • A comprehensive list of the tribal names and their locations, including a map
  • Inclusive information on heritage and culture as well as current issues
  • Detailed information on rituals and sacraments

With expert knowledge and authoritativeness, Zimmerman combines panoramic scope with a wealth of detail in this landmark testimony to the Native American peoples.
