Neither Wolf Nor Dog
Book discussion with author Kent Nerburn
Thursday, April 12, 7:00 to 9:00pm
Nerburn will discuss his journey into the world of Native American belief and experience, a place he believes that non-Natives cannot truly understand but from which we have much to learn. As his writings explain through the voice of a Lakota elder with whom he has traveled, the Native people have long believed that we humans are “not at the center of creation but simply a part of creation.” The world is “a mystery to be honored, not a puzzle to be solved.”
In this evening session of facilitated discussion, Nerburn will describe how he came to write his two books about this Lakota elder and some of the lessons he has learned from the Native peoples who have lived on this land since long before the arrival of Europeans on these American shores.
Kent Nerburn is the highly acclaimed author and editor of 14 books on spiritual values and Native American themes, published in over a dozen countries. His titles include Neither Wolf Nor Dog and The Wolf at Twilight, about his journeys of foot and heart with a Lakota elder, books cherished and acclaimed by readers. He received his Ph.D. in Religion/Theology and Art from Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California, and has been praised by Harper Collins as “one of the few American writers who can respectfully bridge the gap between Native and non-Native cultures.”
