Review quote

"In these times of culminating wars and spiritual devastation, this book provides a useful map of efforts to organize across intertribal and interreligious borders. The fire cooks our food, warms us, gives us light and movement. We need to be reminded . . . and the appearance of this book assures us that we will be."--Joy Harjo, Mvskoke poet and musician "This important book details the continent-wide, including Great Plains, efforts of Native Americans in the 1970s and 1980s to revive and unify Native spirituality and bring it to terms with Christianity."--Great Plains Quarterly. "Treat tells the story of this conference in a way that is authentic to both the events of this cultural reawakening and the narrative tradition of Native Americans. . . . This is a unique and powerful book."--Human Ecology Review. "Treat has rescued an important area of Indian activism that has gone virtually unnoticed--the Indian Ecumenical Conference. Gathering scattered documents and conducting personal interviews, he presents an exciting history of efforts by traditional people to offer their own solution to modern social problems. Incisive and precise, this book opens additional vistas for the reader."--Vine Deloria, Jr., auhtor of God is Red and Custer Died for Your Sinsshow more
