Description

This volume emphasizes the present-day application and reformulation of traditional thought and practice in contemporary Native American communities. It presents a strong picture of the diversity which is characteristic of these traditions, emphasizing that this diversity is a natural result of their fundamental rootedness in local environments, histories, and conditions. The author is a member of the Mohawk community of Kahnawake near Montreal, Canada. Traditional and contemporary perspectives are juxtaposed; diversity among beliefs and practices is emphasized; wide-ranging relationships in Native American religion are illustrated; synchronic and diachronic methods of analysis are employed; and controversial topics, including genocide, colonialism and materialism are examined.show more
