Directed by tribal elders, spiritual leaders and Native professionals and originally produced by the Four Worlds Development Project for use in health and healing programs to eliminate drug and alcohol abuse in the Native communities—this is a clearly written, beautifully illustrated and complex teaching of traditional Native values as a transformative way to bring individuals and communities back to the path that the elders have prophesied.
“For all the people of the earth,” The Sacred Tree begins, “the Creator has planted a Sacred Tree under which they may gather, and there find healing, power, wisdom, and security. The roots of this tree spread deep into the body of Mother Earth. Its branches reach upward like hands praying to Father Sky. The fruits of this tree are the good things the Creator has given to the people: teachings that show the path to love, compassion, generosity, patience, wisdom, justice, courage, respect, humility and many other wonderful gifts.”
