'A Basic Call to Conciousness' represents a synthesis of the best contemporary thinking of the Haudenosaunee Nation, who presently live on reservations in the North Eastern part of the U.S. and parts of Canada. It reflects the wisdom of America's Native peoples from their own sources. These sources reveal a profound awareness of the current world crisis, how things got that way, and what we need to do to help create sustainable.
The central message of 'A Basic Call to Consciousness' is that we need to rethink how we understand the past, the roadways that got us to the present need to be reinterpreted, in order to chart a new course for the future.
"The traditional Native peoples hold the key to the reversal of the processes in Western Civilization that hold the promise of unimaginable future suffering and destruction". - John Mohawk
