One Drum: Stories and Ceremonies for a Planet by Richard Wagamese, Ojibway, and from the Wabaseemoong First Nation, was penned by Richard Wagamese and minimally edited by his publisher. In One Drum, Richard Wagamese finished his interpretation of the first three foundational teachings of the Seven Grandfathers Teachings: humility, courage, and respect. His interpretation of love, honesty, truth and wisdom will forever remain a mystery. These seven fundamental Anishinawbe truths in the Ojibway tradition recognize the principles required to live a good life, in a good way. One Drum: Stories and Ceremonies for a Planet tell a story as a way to explore how all of us can use universal spiritual truths to find harmony in our lives and communities through four simple ceremonies. The simple rituals honour the one song that we are and the one drum that guides us. The foreword is by Drew Hayden Taylor, a member of Curve Lake First Nation and friend of Richard Wagamese.
