In Honor of “Indigenous People’s Day” – Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators eBook is on Sale for 99¢

American principalities, such as Seattle, Minneapolis and Berkeley, are setting the precedence to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous People’s Day. More and more communities are acknowledging the devastation inflicted on at least 118 million indigenous North Americans with some estimates being as high as 145 million people killed, since the fateful day when Christopher Columbus mistook America for India as he came to conquer in 1492. As a result, the Native American population dwindled to less than 200,000 by the turn of the century. In addition to catastrophic loss of life, there was a concentrated effort by the US and Canadian governments and religious groups to replace their native customs and cultures with “civilized” European ways. Despite these enormous setbacks, today’s indigenous people are the courageous leaders of numerous grassroots movements, such as Idle No More, which advocate for protection of the land and water.

In recognition of Indigenous People’s Day, the eBook Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators by Shaman Elizabeth Herrera is on sale for 99¢, October 10-13. This fictional story “reads as a non-fictional account of the spiritual side of the indigenous people and the problems facing our world today. A must read!” says Dennis Nighthawk, healer, spiritual leader and tribe member of the White Laurel Band of Cherokee.

Lonny Hall, tribe member of Kon Kow Valley Band of Maidu, said, “Earth Sentinels is gripping, takes the reader hostage, and educates on the cultural similarities and differences of spiritual leaders from all over the world.”

The author’s great-grandfather, Manuel Carinas Herrera, was a full-blooded Apache who raised her father. Shaman Elizabeth is fortunate to have memories of this brave man, who smuggled sugar and flour from Mexico into Texas, exchanged gunfire with Texas Rangers and crossed paths with Pancho Villa.

Shaman Elizabeth incorporates many of her own experiences into Earth Sentinels, which offers insights into current environmental concerns and historical indigenous injustices woven into an epic adventure.

The story begins with a fallen angel searching for people to join his quest to save the planet. He finds a big-hearted teenager, whose family’s organic farm was ruined by fracking, and a mysterious Native American who is the young man’s mentor. The fallen angel also discovers a mystical healer living near the nuclear meltdown in Fukushima; the spirit of a farmer in India who commits suicide after his GMO crops fail; an Amazonian shaman and his beautiful daughter who are fighting against intruders illegally tearing down their rainforest; and a Canadian Indian tribe dealing with an unstoppable oil spill ruining their traditional hunting grounds.

The characters are beckoned to the spirit realm where they meet the enigmatic fallen angel, and form an alliance with shamans, totem animals and earth’s creatures. Together, they use supernatural powers to grab the world’s attention, demanding that the world’s leaders implement their changes…or else. But as the events unfold and governments retaliate, the characters are forced to question their motives, fight for their lives and listen to their hearts.

Laine Cunningham, award-winning author, stated, “This is one of those books that’s going to stand alongside classics. Drawing from Native American wisdom and the beliefs of a world filled with respect for nature and its spiritual elements, Herrera has created a global book of wisdom for a global world.”

Earth Sentinels: The Storm Creators eBook is on sale for .99 cents starting 10/10/14 through 10/13/14.
