A guide to integrating indigenous thinking into
modern life for a more interconnected and spiritual relationship with
our fellow beings, Mother Earth, and the natural ways of the universe.
each generation, we have drifted further and further away from our
ability to recognize and connect with the source of our original design.
In this modern world, we spend our attention in ways that benefit the
powers that be, and not ourselves or the earth. This book’s intention is
not to teach you to “be Native American,” but instead to use the
indigenous culture of the Lakota to help you connect with your own
indigenous roots and help you remember your ancestral knowing that all
beings are divinely connected.
Thinking indigenously centers around three concepts:
1) The way of the seven generations—conscious living
2) The way of the buffalo—mindful consumption
3) The way of the village—collective impact
Doug Good Feather, with Doug Pineda, shares the knowledge that has been
handed down through his Lakota elders to help you connect with your
purpose in life, personal power, and place in this interconnected web
with Spirit, Mother Earth, and humanity as a whole.
Doug Good Feather is a full-blooded native
American Lakota, born and raised in the traditional indigenous ways of
his elders on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in South Dakota. He
is a direct descendant of Grandpa Chief Sitting Bull. He is the
executive director and spiritual leader of the Lakota Way in Colorado
and the co-founder of Spirit Horse Nation.
