Original Politics: Making America Sacred Again
To recreate a whole and sacred America, it is important to piece together the forgot- ten fragments of history that are currently keeping the country divided. Just as a traditional Native American potter begins a new pot with shards of old pots—to honor the ancestors and bring the energies of the past into the present—Original Politics reassembles the nation as a whole out of the seemingly disparate shards from our origins. The most significant forgotten piece is the profound effect Native America had on the founding values of this nation.
Original Politics convincingly demonstrates how the best aspects of the founding vision of America were inspired or directly appropriated from living Native American cultures— concepts such as natural rights, liberty, and egalitarian justice. Native America has in- spired what Parry sees as the sacred purpose of the nation: bringing all the world’s peoples together on one soil in a harmonious cultural mosaic of unity and diversity.

Original Thinking: A Radical Revisioning of Time, Humanity, and Nature
Unlike most non-fiction books, Original Thinking begins with and is centered around questions. These questions penetrate ever deepening layers of meaning, starting with: “Is it possible to come up with an original thought?”—then going on to consider “What does it mean to be human;” “How has our thinking created our world today;” and more.
