Ohki’s book on modern matrifocal shamanism:
DREAMING THE COUNCIL WAYS: True Native Teachings from the Red Lodge,
Review from Amazon.com
A comprehensive & poetic reporting of long misunderstood ways of the Red Lodge of indigenous peoples. Forest offers compelling evidence that the perspective from the Red Lodge is what the world requires for individual & collective restoration to balance & well being. She shows in detail how the Red Lodge ways provide, through the Native Council & Medicine Wheel ways, an Earth-derived map to self-governance that modern people are questing for in many forms. With tremendous precision & clarity, she demonstrates how the Council ways prepares us to relate to planet & self in ways that naturally unmask & transform our egos, self-importance, isolating individualism & cultural trance. This is a powerful work to which those who study or practice shamanic work will refer again & again.
