Considers the nature of balance and the connectedness of all things, living cooperatively within the natural world, living a life of commitment and integrity, and a vision of a world that is non-adversarial and in which all life is cherished.

Available in paperback only.  Cardinal, Douglas (Métis), and Jeannette Armstrong (Okanagan), The Native Creative Process: A Collaborative Discourse between Douglas Cardinal and Jeannette Armstrong. 1991, color photographs by Greg Young-Ing (Okanagan).

What began as a discussion between architect Douglas Cardinal and poet, educator and activist Jeannette Armstrong evolved into a series of conversations taped over two years. It is from those conversations —about the nature of balance and the connectedness of all things, about living cooperatively within the natural world, about the definition of “warrior” as being “burdened with peace,” about living a life of commitment and integrity, about a vision of a world that is non-adversarial and in which all life is cherished—that this book was produced. Together with Greg Young-Ing’s awesome photos, The Native Creative Process will leave high-school students—and their teachers—with a lot to ponder.
