Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andlt;Iandgt;Walking in the Sacred Mannerandlt;/Iandgt; is an exploration of the myths and culture of the Plains Indians, for whom the everyday and the spiritual are intertwined and women play a strong and important role in the spiritual and religious life of the community. andlt;BRandgt; Based on extensive first-person interviews by an established expert on Plains Indian women, andlt;Iandgt;Walking in the Sacred Mannerandlt;/Iandgt; is a singular and authentic record of the participation of women in the sacred traditions of Northern Plains tribes, including Lakota, Cheyenne, Crow, and Assiniboine. andlt;BRandgt; Through interviews with holy women and the families of women healers, Mark St. Pierre and Tilda Long Soldier paint a rich and varied portrait of a society and its traditions. Stereotypical images of the Native American drop away as the voices, dreams, and experiences of these women (both healers and healed) present insight into a culture about which little is known. It is a journey into the past, an exploration of the present, and a view full of hope for the future.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [210]-222) and index.
