The Law of Nature and Nature's God : Our Lives, Our Liberties, Our Pursuit of Happiness
Within these pages are a collection of essays Kadashan has written for the Juneau Empire, the capital city of Alaska's newspaper; his column was called Kadashan's Corner. He wrote his column for 6 years and served 12 years as the elected tribal president of the Yakutat Tlingit Tribe. He writes about the U.S. and Alaska tribal governments. The premise of Kadashan's essays is focused on the Natural Law. He discusses how the Founding Fathers based the Constitution of the United States on the laws of nature and the laws of God. He also tells about how the Native American knew, understood, and lived the Natural Law. In the essay Native American Influence he informs readers about how the Founding Fathers used the concepts of the Iroquois nation to structure the federal government. Find out how the Indian Nation was pondered by the Founders to be the 14th colony and why it didn't happen. The book is divided into four parts: Native American Influence, the Natural Law, tthe Alaska Native Brotherhood, and reclaiming our power as true blooded Americans. In his capacity as a tribal president, Kadashan actively participated in self- governance conferences throughout the United States, and was able to rub elbows with prominent tribal leaders as well as people in the governmental agencies. Kadashan used his experience and knowledge as a tribal leader to pen his thoughts about tribal governments and their relationship with the federal government. He writes about how the Native American leader's progressed through promoting their own initiatives to advance more self-governance for themselves. Kadashan has strong opinions about the political arena in America, and many of his essays talk about why America is struggling politically, economically and socially, and what needs to be done to get back on track. He proves in his work, such as his essay called Where Does Goodness Come From that our country's dilemmas are spiritual and morale ones. In his essays, Socialism and The Effects of Socialism in America his purpose in these narratives is to bring to our remembrance why our country is being lead toward the road to socialism. Kadashan is retired as a commercial fisherman and his tribal government responsibilities. He lives in Yakutat, Alaska with his wife where he now spends more of his time now writing.
