Gift of Power is a classic story of one man's journey through alienation and struggle to epiphany and redemption. Archie Fire Lame Deer embodies the Native American struggle for survival in a homeland that has become foreign. In vivid first- person narrative, Lame Deer recalls his tumultuous life in a stereotypical Indian world of bottles, feathers, and horses. After enough booze and fighting to kill an average man, he transcends his self-destructive tendencies by reclaiming the spiritual elements of his traditional culture. We learn along with Lame Deer the power and secrets of native medicine and the gifts that they bring to the beholder. This Lakota medicine man is a teacher and a model.


"In Gift of Power, Archie Fire Lame Deer continues in the wonderful tradition of life-filled, wise, and humorous teachings established in Lame Deer, Seeker of Visions by his father, the Lakota medicine man John Fire, with the expert assistance of Richard Erdoes, who has also organized and edited the present volume." (Peter Matthiessen, author of In the Spirit of Crazy Horse and Indian Country)

HASH(0xa16e8318) von 5 Sternen The "Indian" in our US culture's background 11. Januar 2007
Von Michael L. Taylor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you like me, before I read this book, are naive to what true American Indian culture is all about (or maybe you won't realize how naive you are until you read the book), then this biography of Archie Fire Lame Deer, a Lakota Indian is definitely an excellent crash course to bring you up to date! Much of American Indian culture, especially their religion and intense beliefs about people, animals and our earth make a lot of sense to me. So many suppressed or simply not understood parts of this culture are clearly explained and described in fascinating detail. Though I don't plan to change my personal Christian beliefs, I'm moved by the depth and intensity of this culture; Archie Fire's descriptions moved me to intense shame regarding the many horrible things that were, and are still being done in the name of Christianity to this culturally rich, intelligent, colorful and generally peaceful people (Archie Fire Lame Deer, somewhat similarly, also expresses his shame of so many false medicine men promoting Indian religion & culture). And we claim to be a free country guaranteeing freedom of religion? As has become apparent to me, so many things that we believe to be a part of our white North American cultures are actually rooted in American Indian tradition. I say thanks very much to Archie Fire for recording this valuable, enlightening information for we, the unindoctrinated. I wish him and the American Indian people the realization of all of the wonderful dreams described here (as I wish to share in them also).

HASH(0xa1906444) von 5 Sternen I'D LOVE TO MEET HIM 19. Januar 2008
Von Sandy Nathan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Archie Fire Lame Deer is the son of John Fire Lame Deer and succeeded him as head of his spiritual lineage upon his father's death. A "modern" medicine man with an incredible life story. He's funny, charming, impactful, tells the truth. If I were making a list of "must meet" holy men, he'd be on it.

HASH(0xa21e933c) von 5 Sternen Gift of Power 9. November 2006
Von Shawn Dorris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book was totally amazing. Written in Archie Lame Deer's own words. Archie really takes us deep into the Lakota culture and brings us into the world of American Indian life. The style in which Archie teaches instills in the reader the importance of laughter to the American Indian people as a way of dealing with the horror dealt by the government and settlers throughout history.

HASH(0xa19da408) von 5 Sternen The Badlands 25. Mai 2007
Von Connie C. Cox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Growing up nurtured in the many faces and realities of nature - and the beauties & dangers therein - provided a school of knowledge for Archie Fire Lame Deer. Along side of this, were the brutalities and horrors of another type of school; this school sought to shame, beat, and abuse the native spirit out of him. This place was one of the many much written about Christian Indian Schools. Within both settings were men who set examples for Archie of humans who realized they had to do nothing else but provide him with acceptance and kindness: his grandfather and a priest at the Indian School. Archie was sent to this school by his Grandfather for the knowledge to be gained there. Grandfather was a Shaman;he knew that Archie would be one someday,too. I think the real reason he sent him to that school was to expose him - first hand - to the ugliest parts of human nature that he knew about. Archie going to Indian School was tantamount to hurricane Katrina being stopped by the frivolous levy systems in New Orleans. Despite all this violence, Archie was able to learn...the kindly Priest at the school was there, right on time, to provide support when Archie needed it most. After freeing himself from this place, his journey was soaked by alcohol. It accompanied Archie everywhere: with lots of women; in lots of fights; in just as many jail cells. It then took him to Hollywood where he became a stuntman. Under all of this was his calling as a healer and a Shaman: this is a terrifying calling. The physical and emotional demands are overwhelming. Here are the facts: only someone willing to throw away, time and again, friends, relatives, jobs, and opportunites is fit for such a job. It seems that such a person would be a narcissist; on the contrary, this kind of person walks with death and loss every day. They have no ego; they have no feelings. We have called them sociopaths. The difference between a sociopath and someone who grabs THE GIFT OF POWER is simple; the former dies or goes insane, while the latter somehow recognizes the destruction in him/herself - and in the wake they cast - as only another possession to be tossed aside. Then that empty hole is filled with the GIFT OF POWER. Archie's natural Father died. In this dying he passed the gift on to his son. Archie was born and raised in the Badlands; but other lands were just as bad. There is beauty in the Badlands...you just have to recognize it. This book should be on all required reading lists.

This is one of the few books that tells about native American spirituality without any of the new age crap you find in most of the other books.
