This is an outstanding collection of essays articulating a nuanced view of American Indian philosophy and thought, ranging from ontological, ethical, epistemological, political (and more) concerns. The volume is organized deftly and passionately by Waters in a way that is compelling and insightful. Importantly, the lead essay by Deloria, the vanguard American Indian intellectual, paves the way with the usual candor and forthright discussion about American Indian thought. Anyone teaching courses on American Indian politics, sociology, or humanities-related topics can confidently adopt this book. One of my favorite essays in the text is by Waters, on non-binary dualisms that leads to an "aha!" moment about balance (and I'm not new to the issue). A must read for serious thinkers of any stripe.

Some outstanding work here. Should be a must read for all Native American Studies programs. Opens up inner workings of philosophical thought among some academic American Indians. First article by Vine Deloria speaks to importance of this work and this field for Native Americans.
