Pressestimmen

"The strength of humour, the medicine of talking the right way, the art of listening and the gift of vision are the inner tools of Eagle Elk's gift of healing. In this book we follow the imagery of Eagle Elk's world" American Indian Quarterly "The life story of traditional Lakota healer Joseph Eagle Elk (1931-91), this book is a labour of love. Mohatt (a friend of Eagle Elk and a cross-cultural psychologist at Univ. of Alaska, Fairbanks) lived on the reservation from 1968 to 1983. His goal here is to elucidate how a healer becomes a healer and what constitutes his work, and he goes about it with a great deal of integrity, revealing ordinary trials and tribulations alongside spiritual growth and realisation... The book is recommended for all large Native American and cross-cultural psychology collections." Choice

Synopsis

Joseph Eagle Elk (1931-91) was an effective and highly respected traditional Lakota healer. He practiced for nearly thirty years, treating serious physical and mental illnesses among the people of the Rosebud Reservation and elsewhere. In 1990 he began collaborating on his memoir with Gerald Mohatt, a close friend and cross-cultural psychologist. Eagle Elk's story of his life, practice, and beliefs provides a uniquely introspective, demystified, and informative look at the career of a traditional Native American healer. We learn how a persistent vision and recurring visits by thunder spirits led Eagle Elk long ago to become a healer. On a more general level, we gain valuable insights into how Lakota healers practice today. Eagle Elk's story and teachings also demonstrate the importance of community support and consensus in the development of traditional healers. Gerald Mohatt's perspective as a cross-cultural psychologist enables him to highlight the psychological dimensions and efficacy of Eagle Elk's healings and place them within a cross-cultural context.

Eagle Elk's life and career are presented in a way that brings together formative episodes from his life, selected teachings that emerged from those experiences, and case studies in healing. This arrangement allows readers to grasp the close relationship between the personal and cultural dimensions of traditional healing and to understand how and why this practice continues to affect and help others. Gerald Mohatt is a professor of psychology and education at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, and the founding president of Sinte Gleska University, the Rosebud Sioux tribal college. He is the coauthor of Transforming the Culture of Schools: Yup'ik Eskimo Examples.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a must-read for everyone interested in healthcare, healing, mental health and/or Lakota culture and spirituality. It's a biography of the late Joseph Eagle Elk, which is riveting and remarkable. And as an extra bonus, the last chapter consists of a lively, multicultural discourse on the spiritual aspects of health and healing. I wish it were required reading for all healthcare professionals in the U.S.! As a Lakota, I found the book accurate and very moving. It's also one of the few books about Indigenous Tribal People written by a European-American that is truly and deeply respectful. The author conveys the complexity of Lakota culture without being patronizing or pseudo-mystical. Thank you, Mr. Mohatt, for this beautiful book.

Splendid, invaluable contribution to Native American studies 7. August 2000
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The story of Joseph Eagle Elk, Lakota Healer (1931-91), as told to Gerald Mohatt, cross-cultural psychologist, is simply and beautifully told.The effect of many mirrors of the gift of Joseph Eagle Elk derives in part from testimonials by people who he knew and helped to heal themselves. The sacrifice, persecution, and exhausting , demanding life of the traditional Lakota healer are fully portrayed. But the beauty that sings through in Price of a Gift is undeniable. Just to read such a book, just to know such a person lived and touched others, is profound and impacting in itself. An awareness of the core value of our lives radiates through the stories of the life of Eagle Elk. It is impossible to avoid the basic message of this book, with all its humble compassion. Without distortion, greed, evil, or pettiness, the matter of spiritual healing both as duty and joy is its glorious burden. Black Elk's vision included an awareness that the Lakota legacy would include an intrument of healing. The Price Of A Gift is evidence of that legacy. What a gift it is, to us all.

Honors the true voice 1. Juli 2001
Von Ellen F. Lowery - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a remarkable work that honors the true voice of a Lakota medicine man and the voices of his people. Mohatt's labor is not to analyze or interpret so much as present an experience which can only begin to be appreciated or understood when the suffering, missteps, fears, and clowning of the healer are shown along with their transcendence. Eagle Elk was an ordinary man who resisted but finally gave himself over to his calling. There are many books that romanticize tokens of Native cultures or presume to make use of them; this is not that sort of book. Like Fadiman's, The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, this is a work of great reverence.

Jerry Mohatt's Priceless Gift 8. Februar 2003
Von henry niese - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was so impressed with this book - it struck so close to home - that I could not read it all at once. Like Mohatt, I lived with these people, I Sundanced with Joe Eagle Elk's father, ceremonied, got drunk, into trouble & rose again to help people. Mohatt's text is so close to the actual truth of the conditions on the reservation it literally scared me. That's why I had to stop reading from time to time. The Price of a Gift is the equal of Lame Deer, Seeker of Visions, which is one of the great books about Lakota spirituality.
Brilliant book about a humble man... 10. Mai 2014
Von J. Antonelli - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A humble man with an extraordinary gift. The gift to which I'm referring is his way of walking through this world - truly respecting all of our relatives and helping in whatever way might be needed without a thought for what he needed. Very honest and open about difficulties in his past, situations where he realized too late that he could have done things better. The healing stories you'll read in other books about men of his time - that humility is unique in my experience.

The writing is very accessible - as if you are sitting around a fire hearing Joe's words. It has been truly educational for me as well - made me recognize some of the things I need to learn, but also helped me realize some of what has already been given to me. My thanks to Gerald Mohatt and to Joseph Eagle Elk for this story.

I wish I could buy dozens of copies of this - seems like every time I turn around I meet someone I think could benefit from it. I'm on my fifth copy as it is.
