The Bear is My Father
The Bear is My Father: Wisdom of a Muscogee Creek Caretaker of Sacred Ways by Marcellus Bear Heart Williams and Reginah Water Spirit, his wife and medicine helper. 🪶
The Bear Is My Father is a celebration of the life, teachings, and legacy of Marcellus Bear Heart Williams. It follows the critically-acclaimed book, The Wind Is My Mother, which has been translated into 14 languages today.
The book is Bear Heart’s legacy. It contains the arc of his life and the core of his teachings. He is the primary speaker, but the text is leavened throughout by reflections and stories by Reginah WaterSpirit. Other people speak as well, bringing the reader into the intimacy of their relationships with Bear Heart. They tell about the wonder of the man and how he impacted their lives. They give insight into his gentle manner of counseling; talk about being with him as he leads a Native American Church ceremony; or describe how he brought wisdom into their medical facility, community, and lives.
