“George Tinker is the long-awaited intellectual voice of the indigenous peoples of this Turtle Island. He speaks with the gift of immense wisdom and respect for the people’s spirit and of the humble and interdependent place they occupy on the sacred earth circle.” — Henrietta Mann, Professor Emeritus of Native American Studies, Montana State University—Bozeman
“Tinker is a mature intellectual force to reckon with, and his new book reflects it. Solidly researched, closely but eloquently argued, and extraordinarily effective, Spirit and Resistance is must reading for anyone concerned with the relationship between indigenous and Christian traditions in the Americas.” — Ward Churchill, author of A Little Matter of Genocide and Struggle for the Land
