Stanley Chagala

Sacred Politics
Glenn Parry

The underlying spiritual principles that led to the founding of the United States were largely based on living examples of Native American societies that were far more egalitarian than the monarchies that prevailed in Europe at the time.  The most important and enduring concepts of America:  the spiritual principles behind We the People; natural rights; liberty and justice; federalism; a bit-cameral Congress, our systems of checks and balances all came directly or indirectly from Native America.

Glenn Parry is an educator, speaker and eco-psychologist.  He is the author of the Nautilus award-winning book, Original Thinking:  A Radical Revisioning of Time, Humanity, and Nature
