Japan tötet jedes Jahr Hunderte Wale in der Antarktis, obwohl sie international geschützt sind. Offiziell dient die Jagd wissenschaftlicher Forschung. Doch Australien nennt dies Augenwischerei. Um den Walfang zu stoppen zog es gemeinsam mit Neuseeland vor den internationalen Gerichtshof in Den Haag. Die Kläger wollen beweisen, dass Japan in Wirklichkeit kommerziell fischt und gegen internationales Recht verstößt. Die Umweltschutzorganisation “Sea Sheperd” begrüßt die Eröffnung des Verfahrens: “Wir hoffen natürlich, dass die Richter sich für die schon bestehenden Gesetze und Bestimmungen entscheiden werden. Es ist nicht erlaubt, Wale innerhalb des Schongebietes in der Antarktis zu jagen, es ist nicht erlaubt, Wale innerhalb der australischen Wirtschaftszone zu jagen, und es ist nicht erlaubt, Wale zu töten, die auf der Liste der bedrohten Tierarten stehen.” Tierschützer versuchen mit manchmal waghalsigen Manövern, die japanische Walfangflotte zu stören. Australien hofft, dass das Gericht noch in diesem Jahr vor Beginn der neuen Jagdsaison ein Urteil fällt.

Wisdomkeepers takes you on an extraordinary spiritual journey into the lives, minds, and natural-world philosophy of Native American spiritual elders. The elders tell who they are, how they live, and what they believe. Magnificent portraits complement the soaring text. Among those profiled are Buffalo Jim, a Seminole who describes the Seminole story of creation as if the Everglades were Eden, talks of his people’s individual passage into the afterlife, and reveals that every field of wild plants is, to him, a medicine garden. You’ll also meet “Uncle” Frank Davis (Fancy Warrior), a Pawnee Elder who describes the “path to understanding” as a trial filled with scraps of paper, each one a piece of a puzzle. Also profiled is Mathew King, a Lakota who warns of punishments or those who would destroy the Earth Mother. Readers share the innernost thoughts and feelings, dreams and visions, laughter, healing remedies, and prophecies of the Wisdomkeepers, whose humanity shines through every page.


5.0 out of 5 stars Should be required reading,

By Camilla L Riley (Stillwater, OK) – See all my reviews

This review is from: Wisdomkeepers: Meetings With Native American Spiritual Elders (The Earthsong Collection) (Hardcover)

This is a book of incredible beauty – linguistically, visually, and spiritually. In an era which seems to skew more and more to the material and superficial, the Wisdomkeepers who are interviewed bring life and its challenges to the level of essence. Although I have walked in the daily company of Native Americans for more than fifty years, my understanding of the nobility of heritage and centered life grew immeasurably with the reading of every page. Anyone who passes this one up will be the lesser for doing so.

5.0 out of 5 stars it’s an experience,a journey,words cannot describe this book, By A Customer

This review is from: Wisdomkeepers: Meetings With Native American Spiritual Elders (The Earthsong Collection) (Hardcover)

I have recommended this book to anyone I know that is on a path of awakening and can hear the words with their heart.I have given this book as gifts numerous times, but I cannot find it anymore which greatly saddens me. I would love to turn the world on to this book as it so beautifully depicts our Native Americans – OUR indigenous people. This book does justice to Native Americans which they so very much deserve. I do not know how to thank Steve Wall and Harvey Arden – they have touched my life with this richly textured, genuine and moving piece. No words can express the power behind the span of the eagle’s wings, the moving wisdom of a redwood forest or the joy inside to which this book has brought me.

This review is from: Wisdomkeepers: Meetings with Native American Spiritual Elders (Paperback)

She:Kon (Sago)(Hello) To all who read this and hope you are all well. I personally know some of the Wisdom Keepers, Elders whose words are in this book and know them to be of good mind and person. I am Mohawk and Odawa and I come from upstate New York near some of the Reservations and I fully recommend this book for any person who needs to come back to the reality of the living world around them and bring them back to the basic relation between humankind and all the life that is on this earth and surrounds us in the cosmos.
