Abstract:

"'What the world needs today is a good dose of Indigenous realism, ' says Native American scholar Daniel Wildcat in this thoughtful, forward-looking essay. The Native response to the environmental crisis facing our planet, Red Alert! seeks to debunk our civilization's long-misguided perception that humankind is at odds with nature or that it exerts control over the natural world. Taking a hard look at the biggest problem that we face today--the damaging way we live on this earth--Wildcat draws upon ancient Native American wisdom and nature-centered beliefs to advocate a modern strategy to combat global warming. Inspiring and insightful, Red Alert! is a stirring call to action"--Provided by publisher.
