Ghost Dance Prophets, by Philip Dossick


Ghost Dance Prophets, by Philip Dossick


From the foreword by Philip Dossick:

“There is a sacred thread that ties the prophets of peace together: Mahatma Gandhi. Martin Luther King. Nelson Mandela. Abraham Lincoln. This thread cannot be broken. It will never be broken.
Add to these the names of Franz Boas, the pioneering anthropologist, whose monumental refutation of entrenched racism throughout the sciences forever shattered the myth of white racial superiority.
And the legendary Mr. Jack Wilson, called Wovoka, The Ghost Dance Prophet, by his fellow Native American tribesmen.
I believe they are all Ghost Dance Prophets.
More prophets of peace are soon to appear.
Here are the Ghost Dance Prophets of peace, in their own words.
Timeless words that have forever changed the world.”
