American Indian Philosophy

“Instead of developing an idea of cultural movement that has primitive at one end of the spectrum and modern at the other, great care must be taken to identify tribal societies and Western thinking as being different in approach to the world but equal in their conclusions about the world.” Anne Waters in American Indian Thought (2004), pg. 5.
