We are all indigenous to the planet Earth - and that is why each of us can benefit from indigenous wisdom. Throughout their history, the Lakota people developed many enduring insights and practices for achieving harmony with all the forces in our life - including the land, the spirits, our community, and ourselves.

On Living the Lakota Way, Joseph M. Marshall explores how you can apply the core principles of Lakota Wisdom to your own life, no matter who you are or where you come from. Through his gifts as a storyteller, Joseph Marshall brings Lakota history and lore to life with his words. With each piece of Lakota tradition he shares, Joseph offers a special focus on the aspects that are most valuable and relevant to us today in our own lives. How do we choose the heroes that we honor? Where do we find the strength to make it through challenging times? How do we relate to the earth, to our ancestors, and to the profound mystery of the spirit world? The Lakota tradition, as Joseph Marshall imparts it, can provide us with much-needed guidance for finding answers to the essential questions of our lives.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 1/27/2014

    " A nice, short book of stories that can take you away to a time and land that the modern world has forgotten. Very interesting to compare western-European ethics with those of our country's original inhabitants (whom we robbed and poisoned and abused in such a thoroughly ethical manner). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jared Green | 1/26/2014

    " Amazing book. a very engaging collection of stories "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 1/18/2014

    " I listened to the audio book, and the narration was great-- but the sound quality varied. On the one hand, listening to the author tell his tribe's stories was great, but I want a physical copy of the book too, because there are parts I want to note for myself. good book though "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/17/2014

    " A very interesting book -- a glimpse into the Lakota culture and their virtues. Interesting to have a Lakota folk tale, a modern version, and then how it all fits together. Especially interesting to compare it to the Bible, which is what my book club did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 1/11/2014

    " the wisdom of native americans is a treasure trove for us "western minded" folks who think we know more than we actually do. Marshall's words are balm for the roughened soul. highly recommended. "
