Publisher's Summary

Stretching from the north to the south of the Western Hemisphere, the indigenous Americans have a long-forgotten history, and with that, myths, legends, and stories that have been passed on through generations. Many of them were in tune with nature and had their rituals, beliefs, and mythological creatures. In this guide, you’ll hear about:  

  • Native American gods and goddesses that were worshiped by the aboriginals.
  • Some historical background, and the connection to their beliefs.  
  • The most important, best-known legends that have been told and written on cave walls.  
  • Stories that have been told on the American continent about the creation of the world.  
  • The myths and truths about supernatural powers shaman and other native Americans had (or didn’t have).  
  • Native American beliefs about birth, death, and the afterlife.  

To get a grasp of the original inhabitants of the United States, Canada, and Latin American nations, it is crucial to understand the roots of where it all came from and what was going on in people’s minds before the European settlers arrived.

Knowledge.

This book is definitely Five Stars, because Bernard Hayes shared so much knowledge about Native American Ritual and Signs. I had been looking for more information about my ancestors and I found it in this and his other books. I am now more in tune with all my Relations!

Soooooo good!

Spirits of the earth as the Native American saw them through the animals surrounding them. The stories are very similar to the shorter living guidelines as presented in the Chinese I-Ching. The path to right thinking; right living is the same no matter the culture.

Useful book

Especially like the honesty about how guides don't mean the exact same thing to all people - it's individual because you are creating a dialogue based on your own unique perspective... And that it takes a long time to study the language and you don't always know what a guide is trying to tell you. This is very comforting to know.

Good listen.

One lesson that should be learned from this book is that this country owes a lot to these people and their Coulter.
