Ghost Dance Prophets From Wovoka to Nelson Mandela


Ghost Dance Prophets From Wovoka to Nelson Mandela


From the foreword by Philip Dossick:

“There is a sacred thread that ties the prophets of peace together: Wovoka. 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 by his fellow Native American tribesmen.

Wovoka: The Ghost Dance Prophet.

Here are the Ghost Dance Prophets of peace, in their own words. Timeless words that have changed the world.”

Includes full texts of the following classic books:

Nelson Mandela: 5 Speeches that Changed South Africa

Abraham Lincoln: 5 Speeches that Changed America

Mahatma Gandhi: 5 Speeches that Changed The World.

Franz Boas: The Mind of Primitive Man
