He received his B.A. in American Studies summa cum laude from the University of Minnesota and his Ph.D. in Religion/Theology and Art with distinction from Graduate Theological Union in conjunction with the University of California at Berkeley.
He has been called “One of America’s living spiritual teachers” by the prestigious Spirituality and Practice website/magazine, and has been praised by Harper Collins publishers as “one of the few American writers who can respectfully bridge the gap between Native and non-Native cultures.”
Nerburn is widely sought after as a lecturer and has spoken at universities and tribal colleges across the country. His commentaries on the Red Lake shootings were published in newspapers from New York to the Bay Area and were broadcast on NPR affiliates, as well as through the Pacific News Service. He has appeared on C-Span and The History Channel. His works are published in English and foreign language editions in over a dozen countries around the world.
