Publisher's Synopsis
A poetic creation tale. Other Council Fires reminds us that if we are to sustain ourselves as a species and a planet, we must reconnect with joy and spirit to everything around us.

"Will take you full circle to the natural harmony as it was in the beginning. You of the Rainbow Tribe will find the ancient tribal wisdom guiding you to your high-plain destiny."      ~Ed McGaa, Eagle Man

"This latest effort by Sams (Sacred Path Cards) and Nitsch (Language of the Stones) purports to pass on the knowledge of Nitsch's grandfather, one of the last Seneca medicine men.

The book relates the story of creation, of the four worlds (ages) through which the earth has passed and the three worlds yet to come. Past are the worlds of Love (when the love of the creating Great Mystery was poured on the earth), Ice (perhaps some racial memory of the Ice Age), Water (when whites came to Turtle Island, the primeval land mass of Indian myth) and Separation (recalling not only humanity's divorce from creation but also continental drift).

Now is the dawning of the World of Illumination, from which we will pass through the World of Prophecy to the World of Completion, when all of creation will be reunited as one. With its emphasis on interdependence and the equality of all parts of creation, the book's heart is in the right place, and parts of it reflect the genuine oral tradition of the Iroquois Seneca. However, laden with New Age jargon and often impenetrable, this work ultimately will leave even sympathetic readers pondering its sincerity."      ~Publishers Weekly

"The World of Illumination will bring a millennia of perfect peace for those who have come to know and use their talents to aid all of the Planetary Family. The Two-leggeds will be called the Rainbow Tribe, for they are the product of hundreds of thousands of years of melding among the five original races. These Children of Earth have been called together to open their hearts and to move beyond the barriers of disconnection. The Medicine they carry is the Whirling Rainbow of Peace, which will mark the union of the five races as one."
