"Chief/Dr. Peter John is the rarest of individuals one who has been able to see beyond his own cultural upbringing and come to understand the human condition at a level that transcends conventional wisdom... he has utilized his traditional ways of knowing to integrate the tenets of Christianity with Athabaskan spirituality on terms that embrace them both as variations on a common theme. The Gospel According to Peter John is the inaugural publication of the Alaska Native Knowledge Network, which has been established by the Alaska Federation of Natives and the University of Alaska Fairbanks, with support from the National Science Foundation, to serve as a resource for compiling and exchanging information related to Alaska Native knowledge systems and ways of knowing." Ray Barnhardt, Alaska Native Knowledge Network
