About the Author

Lawrence E. Sullivan is Director of the Center for the Study of World Religions at Harvard University.


"A well-balanced collection of essays by respected scholars. This excellent collection presents dignified and respectful views of Native American spirituality and is highly recommended for anthropology and religion collections in academic libraries."
Library Journal, August 2000.
"An authoritative and useful addition to studies of Native American culture emphasizing spirituality as practiced in a number of tribal traditions. All general and college libraries should add this edition to their collection of reliable and readable resources on North American culture, customs, and indigenous religious practices."
Choice, April 2001
"The book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of religion among a tremendous diversity of particular traditions, and also to the concept of 'religion' in general."
"It is fortunate for those of us who are interested in the perennial question 'what is religion?'"
ReVista (Harvard Review of Latin America), Spring 2002

"Those who teach courses in Native American religious traditions know the difficulty of finding quality books that deal in concise yet reliable fashion with a number of tribal traditions and are suitable for use in the classroom. In this volume, Lawrence Sullvan seeks to help fill this lacuna. It should be easily adoptable."
Jace Weaver, JAAR, June 2002
