Native American philosophy has enabled Native American cultures to survive more than five hundred years of attempted cultural assimilation. The first edition of this historical and philosophical work was written as a text for the first course in Native Philosophy ever offered by a philosophy department at a Canadian university. This revised edition, based on more than twenty-five years of research through the Native Philosophy Project and funded in part by the Rockefeller Foundation, is expanded to include extensive discussion of Native American philosophy and culture in the United States as well as Canada. Topics covered include colonialism, neocolonialism, the phenomenology of the vision quest, the continuity of Native values, land and the integrity of person, the role of cognitive science in supporting Native narrative traditions, language in Indian life, landscape and other-than-human entities, teaching Native American philosophy through film and popular culture and the value of various research methods for Native American philosophy. A vital addition to the scholarly work examining Indian life in both Canada and the United States.
