Abstract:

"This book is an unabashed and unsentimental response to our repressed longing: to dance to the drum, to circle the ritual fire, to know healing lore from times when plants spoke, and to walk again in the balance of the earth.

Tamarack Song teaches that the lifeways of all Native peoples are essentially one, sharing not only the same ceremonies and life transitions, but the same spirit and reverence for life. Regardless of ethnic background or religious upbringing, we all are essentially Native people who have lost our original voice. In regaining that lost voice we make discoveries.

Native lifeways - the Ways of the Guardian Warrior, the caretaking of children, and reverence for elders - are intrinsic to all human experience.

Native traditional practices - moon ritual, seeking a mentor, and honoring male and female energy - encourage hidden spiritual powers to manifest.

There is a native human capacity for healing which can only be discovered by returning to balance with Earth Mother."--Pub. desc.
