bk-mish.gif Book: The Mishomis Book: The Voice of the Ojibway
by Edward Benton Banai. The major intent of the Mishomis Book is to provide to the reader an accurate and undistorted account of the culture, history and philosophy of the Ojibway Nation so that people of all nations can also benefit from these teachings which have endured from antiquity. Eddie explains that this is the first book written in this manner, "from oral tradition, and I hope it is only the beginning. I firmly believe it is time for Indian people to come forward with teachings, prophecies and insight. It is time to talk with our Brothers and Sisters of other nations, colors and beliefs. The world family is at a time when ideas and philosophies of yesterday may be the key to the family future." Ages 8-14, 114 pages.
