Magda Weck Gonzalez (Star-Spider Woman) and J. A. Gonzalez (Rattling Bear) describe in detail the spiritual and artist riches of Native America, as they are reflected on the cards of the Native American Tarot deck. The lore and symbolism of each card is explored on an historical, artistic and spiritual level. The path of the shaman is described from its start with 0 The Fool to its triumphal finish at 21 The World. Star-Spider Speaks both immerses the reader in Native American ways and expands traditional interpretations of the tarot. It shows that the Native American Way is not a matter of blood or race, but of Vision.
