Details on “Spirit of the Indian Warrior”

Richly illustrated with historical photographs and paintings, Spirit of the Indian Warrior presents the thoughts of some of history’s greatest warriors and tribal leaders. It offers an intimate window into the cultural values of courage, loyalty, and generosity.

When the first Europeans landed in North America, its native peoples faced a challenge unlike any before. Many warriors and chiefs vowed, like Tecumseh, “to resist as long as I live and breathe.” Some eventually accepted treaties of peace, but they soon found, like Chief Joseph, that these were worth little: “What treaty that the whites have kept has the red man broken? Not one. What treaty that the whites ever made with us red men have they kept? Not one.”

Hope for the future, however, remains strong among their proud descendants. And the words of the Indian warrior live on and inspire the people of America’s First Nations, as well as people across the world.

Reviews of Spirit of the Indian Warrior

“An absolutely essential and critically important little volume that deftly showcases Native American wisdom and experience, Spirit of the Indian Warrior is unreservedly recommended for personal, community, and academic library Native American Studies collections and supplemental curriculum lists.”
Wisconsin Bookwatch



“This book is an essential resource for understanding the First Peoples and the spiritual function of the warrior. In a world where the ascendency of violence blindly defaults to a confused and futile strategy of resolving human conflicts through violence, the tradition of the warrior as found across the diverse cultures of the world teaches otherwise. This work reminds us of the timeless wisdom found in the First Peoples’ lifeways and the need to be in balance and harmony not only with other human beings but with the natural world and the entire web of life. This collection of voices from the First Peoples affirms our need to live life fully in the here-and-now with courage, dignity, and respect for all life.”
—from a review by Samuel Bendeck Sotillos in Parabola
