"Through the voices of ordinary Native Americans . . . LaDuke is able to transform highly complex issues into stories that touch the heart." —Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, author of An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States
The indigenous imperative to honor nature is undermined by federal laws approving resource extraction through mining and drilling. Formal protections exist for Native American religious expression—but not for the places and natural resources integral to ceremonies. Under what conditions can traditional beliefs be best practiced?
From the author of All Our Relations: Native Struggles for Land and Life, Recovering the Sacred features a wealth of native research and hundreds of interviews with indigenous scholars and activists.
"Documents the remarkable stories of indigenous communities whose tenacity and resilience has enabled them to reclaim the lands, resources, and life ways after enduring centuries of incalculable loss." —Wilma Mankiller, author of Every Day is a Good Day
