A Cherokee Elder’s Guide to Parenting
By Tsolagiu M.A. RuizRazo
In this guide for parents of all cultures and traditions, RuizRazo shows how to help children discover their individual purpose—and ensure they will work toward restoring harmony to human relations and balance to Mother Earth.
Every child deserves to have a meaningful and informative connection with the natural world. Drawing on the Cherokee Nation’s earliest teachings, RuizRazo imparts practical wisdom, interwoven with insights into the forces of nature, to assist parents each step of the way—from the time before conception through the teenage years. Included are ceremonies and techniques for strengthening a child physically, emotionally, and spiritually, to ensure a better future for all.
