Order Manitonquat's new book The Joy of Caring for Children in The Circle Way

Mettanokit is a non-profit learning center and service organization working for a more human society based on the old values of cooperation and equality and the closeness and caring found in our elder tribal societies. Programs and services respectfully incorporate the ancestral wisdom of Native Americans and others who honor harmonious living with Mother Earth and spiritual connections with Creation.

As a non-profit we are supported entirely by sales of books and CDs, donations, and the storytelling, lectures, seminars, and international camps we present.

Part of our program is offering Native circles in prisons. We currently have 10 of these circles in New England prisons. Description of these may be found in the book Ending Violent Crime. Another part is creating circles world-wide for healing, building community, and world change. Description of this work may be found in the book The Circle Way. Descriptions of the Native American traditions that provide an understanding for much of this work may be found in the book Return to Creation.

"It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community—a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the Earth."
