Description: The title, "A Circle of Stones," was given in honor of the Circle of Life, and all Councils, in which people from different views come together to find ways to coexist in as harmonious ways as possible…the chapters are labeled “stones” to symbolize the way elders in traditional times taught the children about the Circle of Life by placing a circle of stones on the ground.
Each stone then was a door which opened a world of knowledge. Robert Hejna has a background in Psychology and Social Work and works with special needs students in Michigan’s public schools. He has been a student of Native American philosophy and culture for the past 17 years. Questions explored in this book include:
  • Who is Anishnaubek?
