Product Description

Nine articles and an extensive introduction aptly depict different aspects of Native American spirituality. Varied religious experiences of the contributors provide a diverse viewpoint on how the sacred is experienced by the aboriginal peoples of North America.

This "anthropology of the sacred" is delineated in essays covering Native Northwestern California, Absaroke (Crow), Creek (Muskogee), Lakota (Souix), Navajo, Mescalero Apache, Tlingit, and Central Yup'ik (Eskimo) cultures. The concluding article gives a seldom seen glimpse into Native North American Indian literature.

Extensive footnotes and copious bibliographies for many of the articles give additional insight and information for further research. A welcome addition to any library for its broad coverage, Native Religions and Cultures of North America can also be used in classroom settings due to both for its content and adaptability.
