Native American Worldview

“The human, in a Western sense, must be told what to think, how to act, and he must be placed under some sort of external restraint at all times. The idea that society is always a form of restraint differs sharply from the idea of society that is held by Native Americans. The society, as a whole, is held together in the Native American context by individuals, all thinking for themselves and contributing to the greater whole.”
