chapter 1, section 4, Summary Statements:
circle of concern:
contemporary human peoples in the Lands of the Peoples of the Eagle and the Condor, also called the Americas
throughout the Lands of the Peoples of the Eagle and Condor,
the traditional tribal peoples are the aboriginally indigenous peoples:
the Peoples of the Eagle recently called Native North Americans, and
the Peoples of the Condor recently called Native South Americans.
The modern non-tribal peoples are generally hyphenated-American peoples.
For 500 years,
the traditional tribal peoples aboriginally indigenous to the Americas have been resisting modernity. Resitance continues. Modernity continues.
Native American resistance is good.
Modern hyphenated-American oppression is bad.
Continuing resistance will contribute to resurgent tribalisms among Native-Americans, and perhaps among others.
Continuing modernity will contribute to increasing social and environmental difficulty and tragedy for hyphenated-Americans and others.
:o: resistance-resurgence-solidarity-tribal renaissance
among Native American and other tribal peoples
among hyphenated-American and other modern non-tribal peoples
Native American visions of an alternative more favorable future are the result of faith:
faith in their religious prophecies, and
faith that their doing as prescribed will make significant differences.
