EdD Leadership for Change faculty member Four Arrows, Ph.D., and University of Notre Dame Faculty Emerita Darcia Narvaez, Ph.D, discuss their recent book, Restoring the Kinship Worldview: Indigenous Voices Introduce 28 Precepts for Rebalancing Life on Planet Earth.
Restoring the Kinship Worldview
Restoring the Kinship Worldview is rooted in an Indigenous vision and strong social purpose that sees all life forms as sacred and sentient–that honors the wisdom of the heart, and grants equal standing to rights and responsibilities.
Four Arrows and Dr. Narvaez present 28 passages from Indigenous leaders, including Mourning Dove, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Winona LaDuke, and Xiuhtezcatl Martinez.
Accompanied by their analyses, each chapter in the book reflects the wisdom of the precepts of Indigenous Worldview, including:
- Egalitarian rule versus hierarchical governance
- A fearless trust in the universe, instead of a fear-based culture
- The life-sustaining role of ceremony
- Emphasizing generosity and the greater good instead of pursuing selfish goals and for personal gain
- The laws of nature as the highest rules for living.
