"Shamanism" is a new European game. Shouldn't they play it by themselves,

without stealing the symbols of indigenous cultures?

Forbes is one of my favorite authors, right up there with Deloria in holding nothing back and always fighting the good fight. Going to his homepage turns up one good article after another I'd recommend to anyone wanting to know how and what NDNs think.

He has a new book out. The American Discovery of Europe. I requested my local library buy it. They will and I will get it first. :)
