Riassunto: Western philosophy has long held scientific rationalism in a place of honour. Reason, that particularly exalted human quality, has become steadily distanced from the metaphysical aspects of existence, such as spirit, faith, and intuition. In Tsawalk, hereditary chief Umeek introduces us to an alternative indigenous worldview - an ontology drawn from the Nuu-chah-nulth origin stories. "Tsawalk" in the Nuu-chah-nulth language means "everything is one." A Nuu-chah-nulth orientation to the nature of reality, tsawalk views the universe as an integrated and orderly whole, where there exists a natural relationship between the physical and spiritual. By retelling and analyzing the origin stories of the Son of Raven and the Son of Mucus, Umeek demonstrates how tsawalk provides a viable theoretical alternative that both complements and expands the view of reality presented by Western science. Tsawalk, he argues, allows for the possibility of combining both Western and indigenous worldviews in order to advance our understanding of the universe. In addition, he shows how various fundamental aspects of Nuu-chah-nulth society are based upon tsawalk, and what implications it has today for both Native and non-Native peoples. A valuable contribution to Native studies, anthropology, philosophy, and the study of science, Tsawalk offers a revitalizing and thoughtful complement to Western scientific worldviews. Tsawalk, a Nuu-chah-nulth worldview which unifies the physical and the spriritual, is presented here as an alternative and complement to Western scientific views on the nature of the universe.

Sinossi: In Tsawalk, hereditary chief Umeek develops a theory of "Tsawalk," meaning "one," that views the nature of existence as an integrated and orderly whole, and thereby recognizes the intrinsic relationship between the physical and spiritual. Umeek demonstrates how Tsawalk provides a viable theoretical alternative that both complements and expands the view of reality presented by Western science. Tsawalk, he argues, allows both Western and indigenous views to be combined in order to advance our understanding of the universe. In addition, he shows how various fundamental aspects of Nuu-chah-nulth society are based upon Tsawalk, and what implications it has today for both Native and non-Native peoples.
