I Am White: Eagle Woman Flies with Raven” presents the memoirs of a woman who found love and magic with a Cree medicineman.
After enduring a sexually charged incident with her father, she ran away from home at age sixteen. She entered into an abusive marriage, but managed to obtain an education, career, and raise two children in spite of her troubles. Then in 1986, at age 41, Rita began to have many new spiritual experiences, discovering in the process a completely new world. She met and fell in love with a Cree First Nations Medicine Man, Raven Makkannaw. With her new relationship, she began a twenty-year apprenticeship in spirituality, native history, and philosophy. Raven and Rita devoted their lives to bringing understanding and harmony to the modern world. Their message is that the old teachings are as relevant today as they were for hundreds of generations past. Human nature has not changed--it is only that we live our lives in very different ways. It is a story of a life transformed by love, spirituality, and acceptance.
