INTRODUCTION Indians lifestyle, from a tender young age


“Indian Thinking” is “seeing”
things from a perspective emphasizing that circles and cycles are central to
the world and that all things are related within the universe. For Indian
people who are close to their tribal traditions and native values, they think
within a native reality consisting of a physical and metaphysical world.

1.      CULTURE

Perceptron Is natures way in which  animals and humans see things differently. Although
we all see things differently from various perspectives based on different
cultures and different personal experience even within our own communities and
families, it has been suggested that native Americans who are familiar with
their culture see things  in a more human
to human context. The context is made up of human beings, animals, environment,
and the metaphysical world of visions and dreams.  It is common to find people from this
cultural background believing in heroscope and 
keeping in touch with fortune tellers who try to predict what the future
has in store for them. This has been inherited from the family line where they
tend to believe in them as they have seen a few resemblance with what might
have happened to them or what has happened to their close relative. Although science
is unable to prove this superstision that they believe in.


tradition plays a big role in  the Indians
lifestyle, from a tender young age they have been told  of myths and legends.Listening as a part of
oral tradition is essential for understanding relationships and their multiple
meanings. Elders tell stories in the oral tradition of tribes, where it was
equally important to listen to the story as well as tell the story. Both
storyteller and listener engage in reviving an experience of the past that
becomes alive again, thereby transcending time from the past to the present.
Both tenses of time blur, becoming one and the same. More of this discussion is
covered in the next chapter, but the salient point here is that listening is a
part of “seeing” the world in the mind of the American Indian.


Religion plays a crucial role in shapping the way
indian people who are closely related to their tribe think. One who has been
brought up through the cultural way must have encountered religion at some
point. In religion they have been told on what is right and what is wrong
according to the supreme being they worship. Hence you might find a person of
this descent cant do some things since he/she considers them as wrong and not
pleasing to the eyes of their gods.


In my own position 
I agree that the universe is a cycle in which we are part of. Think of
it this way how can someone explain the little vibrations within our hearts
which makes us to be alive and to keep on breathing. Although science has tried
to explain it by saying that it our hearts beat due to the blood in our system
circulating it is still hard to believe how all this  “mechanical” function came up on their own.
Ancient wisdom usually states that human beings were put in the world to be
care takers of the Earth.

Indian thinking has them living in close knit
families, they value family ties and usually look up for each other. They consider
each other as a piece of this big universe and have to play their part in it
hence the unity. It is important to live closely as family and care for each
other. www.eric.ed/gov
