Theodore Kazimiroff ↠ 5 Free read

Pended between a lost culture and an alien one Many years later as an old man he entrusted his legacy to the young Boy Scout who became his only friend and here that young boy's son passes it on to usTheodore Kazimiroff the son of Joe Two Trees's young confidant writes historical environmental and natural history articles for several magazines He lives in Bayville New York I m a skeptic But as much as I could take issue with a white man writing capitalizing on this Native American story it is Theodore Kazimiroff s father to whom Two Trees told his story and gave his respect not Theodore Kazimiroff himself I ll just evaluate the story itself not the surrounding circumstancesThe writing of this story which the author admits has lost something in transmission from Two Trees to Theodore Sr and then from Theodore Sr to Theordore Jr is fair at best But the story itself of Joe Two Trees last of his tribe of Algonuins is very special and I bet that first oral telling of it in the wigwam was nothing short of magical The struggle of Joe Two Trees to be Indian or to find himself a place in the white world was very real and very poignant His struggles came across and I really felt for him especially when he discussed his loneliness that he had gone years without human contact without hearing another human voice after his parents had died But his triumphs and his incredible strength and resilience also endured I m already so in awe of the beauty of Native American culture the way they waste nothing live in harmony with nature What did the book say about it Something like a naturally ecological lifestyle before ecology became a fashionable wordAt one point Two Trees discusses the great gifts of his life p 130 Tony an NYC corner store owner who looked out for him a homeless rabbit who shared his wigwam for a few seasons a great bear whom he killed thus proving himself as an Indian warrior Cass an escaped slave with whom he worked in the coal mines and taught him the true meaning of the word friendship Sheila ugh and Konoh his loyal dog and companion He was so grateful to the Spirit for these things when so many of us have been given so much than these things and receive them ungratefully Which is in no way to minimize Joe s experiences or values but so to say that so many of us could learn a lot from Two Trees attitudes about and way of life and the Native American way of life generallyOne of my favorite lines from the book is this one ostensibly the inner thoughts of Theodore Kazimiroff Sr I felt in my heart that a person who was able to do so many things was not yet old A man who had so much respect and love for his world could not possibly be ready to leave it p32 In a sense Joe Two Trees has not left the world not really Though the writing down and publishing of this story he can in some sense live forever

The Last Algonuin

As recently as 1924 a lone Algonuin Indian lived uietly in Pelham Bay Park a wild and isolated corner of New York City Joe Two Trees was the last of his people and this is the gripping story of his bitter struggle remarkable courage and constant uest for dignity and peaceBy the 1840s most of the members of Joe's Turtle Clan had either been killed or sold into slavery and b Everybody needs to read this book It is hard to believe the events of Two Trees s journey were real and I kept thinking how it seemed like fiction and his story would be an amazing movie I think this book than any other I didn t want to put down I just needed to know what would occur next in the Indian s life Though there are certain aspects of the book that especially made me like it I can t see how anyone would not enjoy reading this Excellent book one of my favs read it now

    I'm a skeptic But as much as I could take issue with a white man writing capitalizing on this Native American story it is Theodore Kazimiroff's father to whom Two Trees told his story and gave his respect not Theodore Kazimiroff himself I'll just evaluate the story itself not the surrounding circumstancesThe writing of this story which the

    I found this to be a very enjoyable read Its wonderful that this native american's story was preserved so well and I appreciated how it helped me see things through his eyes It is fascinating to me what a person can learn from his environment when he is forced to do so In a sad way this man's story proves that it is in fact possible for a person to be entirely self reliant with zero dependence on society and I
