AUTHOR

Vine Deloria Jr.

SUMMARY

"The first of a proposed trilogy attacking Western science, religion, and government. Deloria...argues that Western science doesn't seriously credit the 'traditions and memories of non-Western peoples' and because of that is downright erroneous or, at best, limited. He mentions, for example, that by 'seeding clouds with certain chemicals' science can create rain, but that the more powerful medicine of a Sioux can drastically alter the weather in all ways...He will not tolerate any scientific arguments against his traditional Indian beliefs, but he is more than happy to use those same methods against scientific theories. But his case is unconvincing, ultimately, because of his seeming lack of even the most basic understanding of his subject."Vine Deloria Jr. is the author of 'Red Earth, White Lies: Native Americans and the Myth of Scientific Fact', published 1997 under ISBN 9781555913885 and ISBN 1555913881.
