"The built environment surrounding the National Museum of the American Indian complements the interior of the museum, which reflects many of the communities--animate and inanimate--the museum represents. "The Land Has Memory" is a triumph, capturing the beauty and complexity of the Native Universe and the intimate relationship between Native Americans and the plants, places, and peoples that share the natural world. The book captures the power and spirit of place in Native American cultures, past and present."
-- Clifford E. Trafzer, Rupert Costo Chair, University of California, Riverside, and coeditor, "Native Universe"
"This book paints spectacular word pictures of a place as old as the land, which lovingly embraces the everlasting life-giving spirits within and without. It contains powerful stories of historic proportions, of honor, of revered gifts, and of the triumphant human spirit epitomized in the National Museum of the American Indian."
-- Henri Mann, president, Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribal College
"A refreshing book on museology . . . [with a] sincere, value-infused presentation. . . . The reader comes away with a deeper understanding of the underpinnings of Native worldview, and certainly with a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness, the balancing, of the human, natural, animal, and spiritual worlds."
-- "Journal of Folklore Research"
