The Montana Cree: A Study in Religious Persistence

by

The Montana Cree: A Study in Religious Persistence Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Montana Cree is a study of religion as a sustaining force in American Indian life. On the small Rocky Boy reservation in northern Montana, the Cree Indians provide an example of how a people transplanted and persecuted throughout their history can maintain and develop a tribal identity and unity through the continuance of their religious values.

As the adopted son of Mose Michelle, a hereditary Pend Oand#8217;Reille chief, Verne Dusenberry moved easily within Indian circles as an accepted participant-observer in many religious ceremonies. His ethnographic study provides detailed descriptions of ceremonies - the Shaking Tent, Ghost Dance, and Sun Dance - which are seldom accurately described elsewhere.

About the Author

Verne Dusenberry taught the first Native American Studies courses at Montana State College and later at the University of Montana. He published numerous articles on the Indians of Montana.
