Native American Worldviews by Jerry H. Gill
Book DescriptionIn this excellent survey of Native American worldviews, philosopher of religion Jerry H Gill emphasises the value of tracing the overarching themes and broad contours of Native American belief systems. He presents an integrated view to serve as an introduction to ways of life and perspectives on the world far different from the dominant Euro-American culture. Drawing on the scholarship of anthropologists and specialists in Indian Studies, Gill brings together much original research in broad, accessible chapters. He explores Native American origin stories, the special connotations given to spatial concepts such as the cardinal directions and the circle, the influence of the seasons and the cycles of life on different cultures, and clan and kinship systems. Separate chapters are devoted to key ceremonies and customs as well as to concepts of health, harmony, virtues, wisdom, and beauty.
