A Quillwork Companion

This is an intensely cool book. It really does provide everything you need to know to give quilling a try. From methods of getting quills- even how to wrangle a porccupine- to traditional dyes. With a little practice, the diagrams are effective on how to do the actual quilling, although I have not tried the advance methods. Definitely a great resource to keep this ancient art form alive.

Indigenous Sustainable Wisdom; First Nation Know-how for Global Flourishing

Indigenous Sustainable Wisdom

Indigenous Sustainable Wisdom: First Nation Know-How for Global Flourishing’s contributors describe ways of being that reflect a worldview that has guided humanity for 99% of human history; they describe the practical traditional wisdom stemming from Nature-based relational cultures that were or are guided by this worldview. Such cultures did not cause the kinds of anti-Nature and de-humanizing or inequitable policies and practices that now pervade our world. Far from romanticizing Indigenous histories, Indigenous Sustainable Wisdom offers facts about how human beings, with our potential for good and evil behaviors, can live in relative harmony again. Contributions cover views from anthropology, psychology, sociology, leadership, native science, native history, and Native art.

Tracker Eugene Halton and Jon Young are contributors and editors in this important book.
