Los cuatro acuerdos: The Four Agreements, Spanish-Language Edition (Toltec Wisdom) (Spanish Edition)
Every action, says don Miguel Ruiz, is based on agreements people make - with other people, with God, with life. But the most important agreements are those people make with themselves. In these agreements they tell themselves who they are, how to behave, what is possible, what is impossible. One single agreement is not such a problem, but so many agreements come from fear, deplete energy, and diminish self-worth. In The Four Agreements, don Miguel reveals the source of self-limiting agreements that take away joy and create needless suffering. For those ready to change these agreements, there are four deceptively simple, yet powerful agreements that can be adopted as guiding principles: be impeccable with your word; don't take anything personally; don't make assumptions; and always do your best. These tenets can rapidly transform anyone's life to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants
As a botanist and professor of plant ecology, Robin Wall Kimmerer has spent a career learning how to ask questions of nature using the tools of science. As a Potawatomi woman, she learned from elders, family, and history that the Potawatomi, as well as a majority of other cultures indigenous to this land, consider plants and animals to be our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowing together to reveal what it means to see humans as "the younger brothers of creation." As she explores these themes, she circles toward a central argument: The awakening of a wider ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgement and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the world. Once we begin to listen for the languages of other beings, we can begin to understand the innumerable life-giving gifts the world provides us and learn to offer our thanks, our care, and our own gifts in return.

Reading and Writing the Lakota Language Book on CD
Based on extensive research and pedagogy on the Rosebud Reservation, this elementary grammar of Lakota, one of three languages spoken by the Sioux nation, is the first written by a native Lakota speaker. It presents the Sicangu dialect using an orthography developed by Lakota in 1982 and which is now supplanting older systems provided by linguists and missionaries. This new approach represents a powerful act of self-determination for Indian education.

Though READING AND WRITING THE LAKOTA LANGUAGE is thorough in its inclusion of conjugation, syntax, and sentence structure, it emphasizes vocabulary and pronunciation. Author Albert White Hat Sr. presents Lakota philosophy as it applies to specific grammar lessons. These examples offer new information and interpretations of Lakota spirituality and society, even to scholars who specialize in Plains cultures. Moreover, he documents the impact of the acculturation process on language, showing how Lakota evolved as a result of non-Indian influences. Beyond language instruction, readers will value the book for its cultural insights, humorous stories, and its entertaining tone.

"White Hat has given a unique window into contemporary Lakota oral tradition as well as into language as it is now practiced on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation. No other Lakota language text and no other volume in the extensive Lakota ethnography tells us as much about the effect of language on both cultural deterioration and survival."--Julian Rice

Native American Healing Meditations: Guided Practices to Invoke the Spirit of Healing
Western medicine often sees healthcare as a battle against a disease or injury. Healers from the Native American tradition believe that true healing comes through dialogue in which we open ourselves to the wisdom our afflictions have to offer. "Tribal healers knew that everything has a story to tell," teaches Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona, "and that if we know how to listen, our illnesses can reveal the secret to their own healing." On Native American Healing Meditations, he guides listeners through practices to communicate with the spirit behind an injury or disease, invoke the wisdom of our ancestors for healing, and more

The Journey of Crazy Horse: A Lakota History
In the great oral tradition of the Lakota people, author Joseph M. Marshall III shares the compelling history of a man, a tribe, and a legacy of courage and endurance.Tasunke Witko, or Crazy Horse, as he is often remembered, brought the U.S. Army to its knees in 1876.

The Journey of Crazy Horse is a unique opportunity to hear legends of a great man as they have told for generations-and rarely shared outside the Native American community.
