Native American thinking
“The white man's books are not enough for me. The Great Spirit gave me the opportunity to study at the University of Nature, the forests and rivers, the mountains and the wildlife. ”(Tatanga Mani)
The Indian, who says wise words about Mother Earth with a howling wolf in front of the full moon, has turned into a cliché. But every cliché has a real core: understanding animals was one of the most valuable skills that a first American could develop.
North American cultures did not know an abstract hereafter that was confronted by this world: death meant another dimension of life in which the cycle of life and decay continued. In doing so, they understood the animal not as a thing, but, like humans, as part of the secret of life. Long despised in the West, spiritual practices of Indian teachers have gone into psychotherapy.
What do we learn
We get to know human-animal relationships of Indian cultures - the lecturer practically introduces techniques of shamanism and explains the philosophical meaning of the mother earth concept - on the basis of anthropological knowledge.
