About the Author
Philip P. Arnold is associate professor of religion at Syracuse University and the founding director of the Skä-noñh--Great Law of Peace Center, where the Haudenosaunee "Great Binding Peace" was founded at Onondaga Lake. He is president of Indigenous Values Initiative, a collaborative non-profit organization that educates non-native people.
What is distinctive about this book is the focus on Indigenous values and the ecological and human crisis we are living in.-- "Davíd Carrasco, Harvard University"
Through Arnold's personal journey he models how Indigenous values provide a framework for the survival of life, transforming religion in the process.-- "Sally Roesch Wagner, Founder and Executive Director, The Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation"
Arnold illuminates how the tragic imposition of the materialist colonial worldview jeopardizes our relationship with the natural world and with one another. His urgent call for renewal of the Indigenous worldview grounded in respect, reciprocity, and reverence will help propel the values shift that might save us.-- "Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass"
This illuminating book's recovery of core Indigenous values--exchange rather than domination, habitation instead of occupation--promises to help all of us find a more balanced way of living with the world.-- "Robert P. Jones, author of The End of White Christian America"
...[T]he work details an Indigenous way of knowing a living world: developing connective relationships to the land through an array of exchange relationships. These attributes of Indigenous values offer a venue to transform a value change for solutions and survival.--G. R. Campbell, University of Montana "CHOICE"
