Autorenkommentar

Rising up to struggle for justice
Reuben Snake became my mentor and elder brother as we worked together to introduce legislation protecting the religious freedom of the Native American Church (NAC), this country's oldest and largest organized expression of indigenous American spirituality. I met Reuben Snake in Washington, D.C., shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that our First Amendment does not protect the religious practices of the NAC, whose members revere and ingest peyote. To help increase my effectiveness as a political advocate for the NAC, Reuben encouraged me to participate in numerous peyote ceremonies. Those all-night prayer meetings and my association with Reuben reminded me that rising up to struggle for justice, being devoted to friends and family, and showing respect, compassion and honor for all persons are what make life most worthwhile. Reuben's guidance and the prayer services I attended helped me gain a new understanding of Native American and Christian spirituality. During my struggle to preserve religious freedom I became, in Reuben's words, "one of a very select few 'Anglos' who has been able to overcome a false sense of cultural superiority, misinformed educational systems, and a Euro-Centrist American society." I was told in a dream to record Reuben's autobiography. This book is the result. Reuben's life exemplifies integrity and encourages combining the best elements of Anglo and Native American cultures. I hope you enjoy it. Jay Fikes, Ph. D.

What is dangerous for some people can be sacred and useful for the others who can utilize that and we should respect those. Jay Fikes' book proved this true for me for peyote, a sacred cactus for Native Americans and pschedelic drug for others who do not know how to use it.
Moreover, I was deeply impressed with the Native American character Reuben Snake. This brave, compassionate man inspired me about how to live in harmony with the nature, the world and all that dwell theron. He showed me that the obstacles are in our minds and if we overcome these there will be no obstacles at all.
This book also helps many realize "Being Indian is being a human being and human beings deserve respect for what they believe, for their religions, cultures, etc."
Jay Fikes had done a wonderful job by introducing this humble serpent to our lives.

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Einen Monat vor seinem Ableben hat der Autor Reuben Snake nach seinem Leben befragt. Man lernt kennen, wie indianisches Leben im rassistischen Alltag abläuft und auch welche Fortschritte das Freiheitsstreben der indianischen Kultur und Kirche im 20. Jahruhundert gemacht hat. Zu diesem Fortschritt hat Reuben Snake wesentlich beigetragen.
1986 war Reuben Snake auch in Bad Segeberg bei den Karl May-Festspielen, um das indianische Leben den Deutschen zu erklären.

Snake Skin for All 2. Juni 2009
Von T. Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
Greetings,

Ruben Snake stands as one of the great spiritual leaders of our day. He took on the federal government after Antonin Scalia's Smith decision in 1990 eliminated any restraints on the persecution of the Native American Church, and he won.

Like Martin Luther King, Reuben Snake passed on just before we got to the Valley of Plenty, but he knew we would get here and keep going too.

Reuben Snake of a true historical figure who will be remembered and recognized by this Planet two hundred years from now.

Reuben Snake will inspire you. 26. März 2010
Von ElizabethAnn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I enjoyed the Reuben Snake book very much. I knew approximately zero about Reuben Snake and about Native American life and activism in the twentieth century, so all of that was of great interest to me. But maybe I liked the straightforward spiritual wisdom more than anything. It is the kind of basic wisdom that I can really relate to, and need to keep having reminders about. It "speaks to my condition". Thank you Jay for helping me learn about this man.
A Humble, Yet Deeply Satisfying, Review 16. Februar 2012
Von Masha - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Dr. Jay Fikes has written one of the best biographies I've read. Reuben Snake was an activist, healer, and, most importantly, an engaged and compassionate human being. Dr. Fikes has written a very fitting biography of an inspiring person, and revealed facets of a critical time in American history as well. I strongly recommend this book to all those interested in American history, shamanism, and Native American history (which is quite different from the standard American history, as any European-American who has experienced Thanksgiving in Alaska knows!).
