In this book the author examines various aspects of a selection of Western Great Lakes American Indian philosophical traditions and beliefs. He combines over forty years of stories, anecdotes, and observations learned from Western Great Lakes tribal elders into a coherent and thought-provoking philosophy text which challenges readers to look beyond their own cultural prepossessions and discover a method of asking questions where the answers come from within. Contents: Setting the Stages: From Another Perspective; The Atisokanak World; Creation and the Early 'Earth World'; The Earth and its 'People'; The Star People; The Inherent Primacy of Female Beings.
John F. Boatman is Instructional Program Coordinator and Lecturer in American Indian Studies and in Ethnic Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
