Abstract:

"In Native Science, Gregory Cajete initiates the reader into a timeless tradition of understanding, experiencing, and feeling the natural world. He explores and documents the Indigenous view of reality--delving into art, myth, ceremony, and symbol, as well as the practice of Native science in the physical sphere. He examines the multiple levels of meaning that inform Native astronomy, cosmology, psychology, agriculture, and the healing arts." "Unlike the Western scientific method, Native thinking does not isolate an object or phenomenon in order to understand and work with it, but perceives it in terms of relationship. An understanding of the relationships that bind together natural forces and all forms of life has been fundamental to the ability of Indigenous peoples to live for millennia in spiritual and physical harmony with the land. It is clear that the First Peoples offer perspectives that can help us work toward solutions at this time of global environmental crisis."--Publisher's description.
