Thinking in Indian: A John Mohawk Reader presents the Native perception of philosopher-thinker-activist John Mohawk (Sotsisowah). An elder of the Seneca Nation and deeply rooted Haudenosaune (Iroquois) traditionalist, Mohawk's intellectual approach is keenly universal while founded in the practice of his ancient longhouse culture. A participant and leader in the Native traditional movement, John Mohawk's gifted oratory and clear thinking became the basis of a substantial current of Native activism. These essays, produced and published over thirty years, are prescient in the prophetic tradition yet thoroughly current. They reflect consistent engagement in Native events and issues and deliver a profoundly indigenous analysis of modern existence. Native sovereignty, cultural roots and world view, land and treaty rights, globalization impacts and mitigation, spiritual formulations, and fundamental human wisdom coalesce to provide a genuinely indigenous perspective on current events.
