Loss of Indigenous Eden and the fall of spirituality
—Stonechild, Blair, author.
5 available of 16 items

"As a follow-up to his award-winning The Knowledge Seeker: Embracing Indigenous Spirituality, Blair Stonechild continues his exploration of the Indigenous spiritual teachings passed down to him by Elders, and then moves his study further afield. He identifies the rise of what he terms a dominant Wetiko worldview, marked by an all-consuming and destructive appetite that is antithetical to the relational philosophy of Indigenous thinking whereby all things are interrelated and in need of care and respect. Based on Stonechild's work with Indigenous peoples around the world, from Inuit communities in northern Canada to the Dalits in India and the Uighurs in the Xinjiang Autonomous Region of China, Loss of Indigenous Eden and the Fall of Spirituality brings together and highlights the fundamental commonalities that connect all Indigenous nations, while calling for global recognition and respect of their rights and spirituality."-- Provided by publisher.
