Thank you for sharing this. I haven’t read a lot of Matthieson’s books-always meant to but the first one I read “Indian Country” for a class in college inspired my respect. I was impressed that someone so famous and lauded would use his fame to shine a light on some of the darkest aspects of how America achieved-and still maintains her global dominance and prosperity-and the grisly effects this has on the people this nation stole it’s famed prosperity*from*.
It is a good thing to pause in respect for elders who have passed on after long, productive and spiritually focused lives. That used to be the norm long ago:-) but now it is rare enough to be notable and especially admirable as an example to follow.
Those who live their truth with passionate dedication as Matthieson did light the path ahead for all.
